Desert Enterprises will continuously work on Developing its Safety Management Program, the company employs safety management systems, which include detailed standards and procedures. Together, these programs and systems form the cornerstone of safety at the company work locations , ensuring that employees have the 'tools' they need to work safely. 

The company also strives to ensure employees are fit to conduct their work in a safe manner. With this goal in mind, the company offers healthy meal alternatives for live-in employees and provides health assessments to employees at various company sites. The Company  also closely monitors alcohol consumption, drug use and fatigue and has established procedures to manage non-conformance in these areas.

Eliminating workplace injuries is an ongoing challenge as situations change and new hazards are identified.


Business Excellence Through Safety is a different way of considering safety. Safety is not an icon, mounted on a pedestal, to be revered. It requires a considerable investment of time and resources and is expected to deliver an average rate of return. When Business Excellence is pursued through safety, consequential benefits of efficiency and cost savings are realized that otherwise would not be recognized.

At Desert Enterprises , Business Excellence Through Safety is a process whereby hazard identification and removal/management or incident investigations are supplemented with additional processes and culture. It allows people to look beyond the obvious and identify the benefits that generally are inherent (but not crystallized) in corrective initiatives. Success in this aspect of safety management provides real rates of return on investments - beyond the usual- and represents one of the ways that great safety performance can make Desert Enterprises  a great company.


Protect People, Environment and Communities 

Rapid Response is a process that mitigates and prevents the escalation of adverse consequences in the event that existing risk management controls fail, particularly in the event of an incident that may have the potential to seriously impact the safety of employees, the community or the environment.

The Rapid Response process:

  • Provides appropriate support to an affected site and/or region to complement their technical response to an incident.
  • Minimizes the impact on the company by considering the environmental, strategic, legal, financial and public image aspects of the incident.
  • Ensures communications are being carried out in accordance with legal and ethical requirements.
  • Identifies actions that need to be taken on a broader scale than can be predicted by those involved in overcoming the immediate hazards.

Desert Enterprises is committed to openness, transparency, and honesty in its dealings with shareholders, employees and partners. This is done through keeping them aware of its objectives, goals, and businesses.
