Health & Safety

What Health & Safety Means to Us

One of the major driving forces in Dortech is our commitment to Health & Safety. We care about our people and the potential risks associated with our work. We avoid unnecessary risks wherever possible and seek to minimise the impact of our activities on others.We understand that Health & Safety not only shows people that you care about their safety, but encourages people to think more carefully about what they are doing and the effects that their activities can have on themselves and others. A safer working environment leads to a reduction in quality issues, an improvement in efficiency and an increase in profitability.
