After the millionth hour milestone crossed in November 2012, PROXA now records 30 consecutive months without lost time injury (LTI) in its entire operations with a total of 1.5 million man hours worked at the end of July 2013.
PROXA has been developing for over a decade a SHEQ (Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality) management system in line with OHSAS 18001 standards which aims to provide a safe working environment and safeguard the health and safety of the PROXA staff as well as our suppliers’, sub-contractors’ and client’s employees and surrounding communities.
Elie Sakhat, CEO of PROXA comments on this accomplishment: "We build, operate and maintain water treatment systems in over 100 industrial and mining sites throughout Southern Africa and the African Continent. Continuously improving our Health & Safety management systems is our number one priority. We are very proud of this achievement as every PROXA employee is contributing and striving towards setting the benchmark of Health and Safety in our industry. We owe that to our clients and employees."
