The two documents which reflect Nshimbi’s commitment to health and safety are the Safety Policy and Employee Handbook. Whereas the handbook contains safety guidelines, procedures (including PPE usage policy) and penalties for non-conformance the Safety Policy is clearly displayed throughout our premises.
