Health and Safety

As part of Advent’s constant efforts to bring world class standards to the African continent, HSSE has been made a critical priority organization wide and is now treated as one of the three primary concerns on any construction site with Advent presence; namely, Quality, Speed and HSSE.

Advent is the first Tanzanian construction company to recognize the important of HSSE and to set up a full time HSSE department with dedicated staff members and resources to ensure that stringent HSSE policies are implemented. The minimum standard held within the company far exceed local regulations and are in line with global corporates and multinationals that have carried out independent audits to verify the performance of the department. The HSSE manager reports directly to the Managing director and the policy in place of zero accidents is given priority over and above all other departments. Regular training’s and education about the importance of HSSE ensures that there is buy in throughout the organization and there is a culture of awareness and safety that is practiced throughout the organization.
