Safety as a Core Business Value

A Safety Culture is a top priority for any organization that values its human capital as an intangible asset. Companies dedicated to this goal invest in systems and technologies aimed at minimizing workplace hazards, fostering safer environments, and optimizing work processes. Implementing preventive measures should go beyond mere compliance with regulations; it should be deeply embedded in our processes as a societal commitment. AQTech responsibility is to inspire our teams to prioritize safety in their actions - this is the cultural shift we aspire to achieve.


Achieving this transformation requires a collective commitment to workplace safety engagement. While organizations can and should invest in technologies that create safer work environments and conditions, the true success of a Safety Culture depends on a crucial ingredient: the engagement of every individual. Senior management actively supports and encourages the adoption of safe practices. Leadership serves as the bridge for this Culture, communicating process changes, sharing knowledge, and identifying opportunities for improvement. Resolute employees form the foundation of this Culture, embracing changes that enhance process maturity, promoting best practices, and empowering others with technical and behavioral knowledge to achieve a shared victory. AQTech takes pride in maintaining a spotless record of zero workplace accidents among its employees over the past 19 years. This achievement is a testament to the involvement and commitment of our employees to the safety of the entire group.


Company's safety empowerment mirror


The April-Green Movement encourages society to reflect on the significance of workplace safety and health. This reflection should foster a comprehensive and holistic understanding of occupational safety and identify all those impacted by the organization's actions. It is an immense responsibility that encompasses our employees, service providers, surrounding communities, and the families of all these individuals.

It is crucial to acknowledge the safety conditions of our clients' workers as a direct outcome of our business. Installing a Condition Monitoring System (CMS) in a generating unit or wind turbine enables remote monitoring of equipment performance. This significantly reduces workers' exposure to direct hazards and harmful agents, such as continuous noise, working at heights, and confined spaces.

Moreover, the ongoing monitoring of equipment operating conditions helps anticipate wear and tear and prevents failures. By employing predictive maintenance techniques, emergency equipment shutdowns can be avoided. Such

incidents often lead to more hazardous working conditions and place a significant mental strain on operational and maintenance teams.

Consequently, investing in monitoring system technology yields numerous benefits, including enhanced process reliability, prevention of material losses, increased equipment availability, and reduced occupational risks for workers.
