Safety and Health Policy Statement

Bakad Engineering Services Limited believes that NO JOB/TASK ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THEY WORKER’S HEALTH AND SAFETY. Our target is ‘’ZERO INJURIES’’. If a job represents a potential safety or health threat, every effort will be made to plan a safe way to do the task.
