OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY
Occupational health and safety is crucial to support the Company’s successful business activities.

TOTAL has consistently developed a safety culture that is mutually supporting and involving active roles of all individuals, ranging from the employee, subcontractors, to other parties operating in the Company’s work site. Each individual in a project site is required to meet the Self Safety Tools standard by wearing helmets, safety shoes, body harnesses, vests, and other equipment as required according to the risk level.
With regards to occupational health, TOTAL sees that health protection is a key point to ensure that employees are free from health threats and adverse conditions from activities related to the execution of construction projects. To achieve the above objective, TOTAL continues to maintain and create a healthy work environment, among others by assessing the impact of any activity/project on human and nearby surroundings.
In an effort to improve the implementation of K3, TOTAL implemented several policies as follows:

Therefore, TOTAL strives to exert the best effort for our employees to create conducive work environment for their safety. The Company continues to ensure that all employees perform their duties according to the safety standard procedure in accordance with the Companyís regulation.
Within project execution, the project plans prepared by subcontractors are presented and discussed to achieve the same understanding regarding the standards of occupational safety. At the operational level, subcontractor’s workers are provided with preliminary safety briefings to shape their mindset and establish the expected working attitudes. All requirements for HSE are briefed at the commencement of the tender process so that subcontractors can pre-calculate the cost components. Project plans that have been created by subcontractors will be presented and discussed to achieve the same understanding regarding the standards of occupational safety. The Company can also protect the rights of subcontractors and other third parties to obtain work safety, while at the same time safeguarding the Companyís assets and facilities through a well-organized monitoring process.
To create a safe place for work, the Company ensures to emphasize these following actions:
- Complying with all regulations and/or standards of occupational safety.
- Providing all safety equipment and ensuring that all the equipment is used according to the Companyís occupational safety standards in construction.
- Making adjustment and continued improvement to occupational safety-related technology.
- Developing an emergency response plan to help identify and conduct preventative measures for the potential emergency scenarios.
- Overcoming the accident, explosion and fire according to the prevailing standards and procedures.
- Investigating any accident occurred, including the nearmiss incident, to identify the cause and anticipate it in the future.
- Preparing report on any incident and accident at work to the supervisor of the unit or institution concerned within schedule.
- Periodically checking, inspecting and evaluating all facilities, including resources, equipment and detector for maximum anticipatory action.
- Holding periodical training on emergency management.
- Reviewing and evaluating the implementation of HSE management system and improving skills of the employees and partners.
Occupational health has become a crucial issue that needs to be addressed accordingly within TOTAL’s work environment. As the employer, the Company is bound to protect every employee’s health aspect in the workplace from the threat of health issues and adverse conditions caused by the occupational activities, especially related to the construction projects. To that end, the Company creates a healthy work environment, among others by assessing the impact of any activity/project on human and nearby surroundings.
Enforcement of the need for occupational health priority is shown by taking preventative measures to minimize employee’s health damage by providing routine medical checkups for employees every year. For workers engaged in the project sites, the medical checkup is performed in cooperation with BPJS or other local medical professionals. Such measures are also made by providing first aid point in each project area. Once a month, TOTAL also conducts mosquito fogging in the project areas to create and ensure healthy work environment for all the employees.
For employees suffering from health problems, TOTAL has assigned medical support for the checkup. The health record of such employees will be registered in a database to allow such data to be analyzed and to observe whether there is any trend of illness caused by the Companyís work environment or other causes. Thus, the Company could then take further actions for preventive actions concerning such problems.
To create a conducive and healthy workplace, the Company improves 2 (two) interlinking aspects, the employeeís health and workplace condition.
