Health and Safety Policy Statement

ABP (London) Investment Limited, the international subsidiary of Advanced Business Park (China Holdings), is redeveloping Royal Albert Dock, London – turning the area into a fusion of international business in one place. ABP Royal Albert Dock will be London’s newest business district and a hub for global enterprise.

During construction, we shall establish and maintain a project culture that will signal that effective leadership has been provided at all levels. We shall protect people and the environment in a sensible, repeatable way that inspires others to do the same. This will be achieved through everyone participating, by the supply chain self- policing and leading, by recognising health, safety and environmental management as the keys to a great project completed on time, within budget and creating a new business heart in London.

We shall engage with all our staff, partners and suppliers so that everyone is enthusiastically involved in managing risk, securing success and acting as an ambassador for our realistic and practical vision of zero harm. Our approach to HS&E performance and its management is defined by a respect for the people who work for and with us, for the local community within which we work and the wider environment. We shall engage with the workforce of our suppliers and forge partnerships to meet our high Standards.

A copy of this policy, together with detailed arrangements, shall be brought to the attention of all staff and will be made available for reference within ABP (London) premises. For our staff, we shall:

  • Manage risks to their health and safety
  • Provide safe workplaces and safe systems of work
  • Provide information, instruction, training and supervision
  • Consult with staff on the associated arrangements

This Policy will be reviewed annually.

Our Vision

The ABP (London) Investment Limited HS&E vision is that the redevelopment of Royal Albert Dock will be completed without harm to people or to the environment. We shall aim for a project that will be recognised as influential on future projects in the standards for health, safety and environmental sensitivity.

We shall establish and maintain a project culture that will signal that effective leadership has been provided at all levels. We shall protect people and the environment in a sensible, repeatable way that inspires others to do the same. This will be achieved through everyone participating, by the supply chain self-policing and leading, by recognising health, safety and environmental management as the keys to a great programme completed on time, within budget and creating a new business heart in London.

We shall engage with all our staff, partners and suppliers so that everyone is enthusiastically involved in managing risk, securing success and acting as an ambassador for our realistic and practical vision of zero harm. We shall seek to positively improve the well-being of all involved in the project work. Our approach to HS&E performance and its management is defined by a respect for the people who work for and with us, for the local community within which we work and the wider environment. We shall engage with the workforce of our suppliers and forge partnerships to meet our high standards.

HS&E Project Aims

These aims are to be adopted and integrated into the management of the project by all organisations and individuals in the development supply chain – project managers, designers, engineers, contractors and others.

  • No fatalities – the programme can be undertaken successfully without loss of life.
  • No accidents – we shall work to reduce accidents to as low a level as possible, with a benchmark of an AFR of less than 0.1 (a reportable accident for every million hours worked).
  • No environmental incidents – protecting the local and wider environment throughout the development;
  • Information – with a low accident rate, it is essential to record, report and analyse lost-time accidents, minor injuries and near misses and suggestions for improvement, and to use this information for continual improvement.
  • Health and Well-Being – ill health related to work is an even greater risk than accidental injuries, and ABP aims to minimise and manage exposure to health risks on site through good design and effective site management. It will work to enhance the well-being of all who work on the project and where practicable the wider local community.
  • Waste – the reduction of waste through design and good practice by maximising reuse and recycling of material arising from works, minimising carbon emissions, optimising opportunities for efficient water use, reuse and recycling and using environmentally and socially responsible materials.
  • Workforce – the development and maintenance of a competent workforce, and a positive HS&E culture, throughout the supply chain through effective leadership and engagement.
  • Culture – embedded in everything done on the programme, founded on exemplar work processes and the engagement of the whole workforce in targeting zero harm so that no-one walks by a problem as not theirs.
  • Diversity and Opportunity – health and safety on the programme will be an enabler, helping young people, males and females and members of ethnic minorities to achieve employment, training and personal development in projects that consistently focus on their health and safety.
  • Community Engagement – health and safety will make an appropriate contribution to the initiatives taken to engage with the people living and working locally, as well as Local Authority and community groups opportunities to create an occupational health and wellbeing resource adjacent to RAD.
