WAPCo has integrated safety into every aspect of our business. This is in line with our commitment to safe operations in areas where we conduct business. Our commitment to safety is demonstrated through management systems that we have implemented to protect the environment and the health and safety of employees and the public. The reliability of our systems is assured not only by the knowledge, competence and skill of our staff, but by the strong safety culture that we have built within our organization. You cannot conduct business in WAPCo unless you have fully complied with a structured process to assure everyone’s safety including your own. In other words, safety is part of routine business in WAPCo.

We are proud of our safety record, which continues to improve everyday. The World Bank Supervision Mission to WAPCo in April, 2010 had this to say about us: “WAPCo continues its exemplary workplace safety record, logging more than 5 million person-hours without a lost time incident. Enforcement of safety protocols for visitors, restrictions on entry to facilities (where gas is present), and strict adherence to use of personal protection equipment by all personnel, are obvious at all locations.”
