3D60 management believe it is the right of every person to work and live in a safe and healthy environment. Our vision is to manage our activities and services in a manner that reduces potentially adverse impacts on Safety, Health, Environment and Quality.

Our goals are:
  • No accidents, injuries or harm to all
  • Compliance with all relevant SHEQ legislation and with our client’s standards
  • Continual improvement of our SHEQ Management System
  • Customer satisfaction (Internal & External customers)
  • Being recognized as the service provider of choice with an exceptional reputation of achieving desired goals and objectives 

Our principals are:
We will identify critical operations and installations, and act to reduce significant risks and impacts to as low as reasonably practicable.

Our employees will be required to comply with our client’s Health, Safety and Environmental Policy and Standards, and we will promote these values with our suppliers.

We will continually monitor, audit and review the SHEQ performance of our operations and activities.
This Health and Safety Management Plan deals with health and safety issues for any survey related work on site. It is paramount for employees to:
  • Know and understand what and how to do the task and be properly trained to do it.
  • Have the correct tools, equipment and resources.
  • Must work accurately and do all required pre and post checks and keep records of all measurements and checks.
  • Must be in a position to identify any deviations or mistakes immediately and take corrective action.

3D60 requires that all survey work performed equals or exceeds the standards as prescribed on the clients’ construction site and that of the survey governing bodies’ PLATO and SAGI.

To achieve this level of excellence, a proactive Health and Safety program, which will achieve significantly better results than the current norm, is required. The program is designed to increase awareness regarding Health and Safety consciousness, trained personnel to assess and measure Health and Safety performance and establishes an effective corrective action programme.

In addition to the above 3D60 is committed in providing services that are aligned with the best Quality Management characteristics in our industry. We therefore ensure recruitment and empowerment of our employees with necessary knowledge and expertise to exercise the implementation and monitoring of Quality issues at large.

A vital part of this process is the reporting, analysis and corrective measures from reported, "incidents such as near misses, injuries, spillages, damages and non-conformances etc. There is direct correlation between the numbers of incidents as stipulated above and consequently to manage SHEQ; data at all levels must be collected.

The activities to be carried out in this plan are designed to provide an environment in which the management and employees will achieve the required objectives.
