Human and Labour Rights

  • Working-at-Rabai

Human Rights
BWSC respects and protects all internationally proclaimed human rights, and strives to prevent any discrimination practices. In addition, we are committed to ensuring equal opportu­nities. We respect cultural and religious differences and see these differences as a strength that allows us to achieve our vision and tailor our services to the needs and requirements of our clients and in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. 

Labour Standards
BWSC respects all international declarations adopted by the ILO. Fair wages reflect the qualifications of employees and the local average wage level. We do not accept any form of forced or compulsory labour and/or child labour under any circumstances and include this as a parame­ter when choosing sub-suppliers and sub-contractors. In addition we respect the freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining.  We are firmly committed to providing equal opportunities to all employees, regardless of gender, age, ethnic affiliation and religious belief, handicap, political or sexual orientation or family status, and will under no circumstances tolerate employee discrimination or harassment.  BWSC also endeavours to secure the wellbeing of our employees and their families and has in place a number of social arrangements that provide employees with the opportunity to socialize in different contexts. We work to secure a balance between work and family and respect local traditions and needs.

To ensure compliance to our human and labour rights principles we have additional policies in place including our supplier evaluation procedure, General Terms and Conditions of Purchase, Modern Slavery Act policy statement and Code of Conduct for Employees as well as the Personnel Policy. Further, internal and external audits are conducted to monitor all alarms and irregularities.

Occupational Health and Safety
Due to the nature of BWSC’s business of running large construction sites and operating power plants with heavy machinery, there is an increased risk of work accidents. Accordingly health and safety is a key focus point for BWSC, first and foremost, due to the human consequences of accidents but also because accidents can affect BWSC’s reputation. Therefore, BWSC and its subsidiaries will conduct business in a safe manner by following all applicable QHSE guidelines and policies, including meeting the requirements of the  OHSAS18001:2007 – Health & Safety Management Systems. We expect suppliers and other stakeholders to operate within these guidelines and the guidelines provided in the General Terms and Conditions for purchase.

UK Modern Slavery Act

We welcome the requirements of section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act and see the transparency it encourages as coherent with our support for the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
