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 occupational safety are disseminated 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 occupational safety standards. The Company can also protect the rights of subcontractors and other third parties to obtain work safety, while at the same time safeguarding the Company’s assets and facilities through a well organized monitoring process.

As a company engaging in construction sector, TOTAL realizes that the potential for accident occurring in the project is quite big. To anticipate the work accident from taking place and mitigate fatal loss, the Company conducts various activities and programs. One of the programs implemented for all personnel without any exception is the HSE Talk/Safety Talk.
Occupational Health Facilities
Occupational health has become a crucial issue that needs to be addressed accordingly within TOTAL’s work environment.

Enforcement of the need for occupational health priority is shown by taking preventative measures to minimize employees’ 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 Social Security Administrative Bodies (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 employees.

The health record of such employees will be registered in a database to allow the data to be analyzed and to observe whether there is any trend of illness caused by the Company’s work environment or other causes. Thus, the Company could then take further actions as preventive measurements concerning such problems.
