NAKS is committed to ensure the safety of all employees as well as clients and visitors at the workplace. Every employee, regardless of position, has an individual and co-operative responsibility to be uncompromising with regard to health and safety. Risk management is incorporated as an integral part of all business initiatives and operations, ensuring all hazards are identified, assessed, controlled, and modified as necessary to maintain safe working activities. NAKS train employees on how to safely work with the products around them. Also, we have integrated housekeeping responsibilities into jobs by having workers clean up as they go during shifts by removing waste and unused materials and inspecting their work area to ensure cleanup was properly completed.
The success of NAKS operations depends on the people employed. The well-being of employees is therefore the major consideration in all company operations, whereby safety is one of NAKS greatest responsibilities.
