Health, Safety and Environment

Ankor understands that safety is a critical part of our industry. We do not see safety management as just a moral or social obligation, we know that the very survival and sustainability of our business depends on this.

ZERO Harm is our HSE objective and Directors, Management and Employees work together to achieve this objective.

Ankor is committed to the prevention of occupational injuries and illnesses, compliance to all applicable legislations and continual improvement in our health and safety performance. We are committed to fulfilling our health, safety and environment obligations and comply with all safety requirements of our clients and the industries we operate in. Our guiding principles include ensuring that HSE is FIRST – never compromising on the health and safety of our employees and to manage responsibly the impact that our business has on the environment.

Accordingly, Ankor’s objectives are to:

  • Provide a safe workplace for our employees, contractors and visitors.
  • Prevent property damage, loss prevention and fires to our businesses and that of our clients.
  • Develop safe systems of work and procedures combined with the effective use of personal protective equipment to reduce the risk of accidents and personal injuries.

To achieve the above objectives, Ankor will:

  • Design, operate and maintain facilities that are safe and without risk to health.
  • Develop and maintain an integrated HSE management system that will establish appropriate standards of occupational health and safety. We will implement the use of active and if necessary reactive monitoring, audits and reviews to ensure the systems we have put in place to control risks on the job are working and risks are being controlled effectively.
  • Set SMART objectives and targets and regularly review these objectives to ensure they are being met at company and departmental levels to ensure continual improvement.
  • Ensure employee participation at all levels of decision making of matters relating to health and safety. We will also involve employees in the preparation, review and implementation of our policy and provide appropriate training.
  • Engage competent health and safety specialists to assist manage all risks related to our operations and ensure the controls are implemented to reduce risks on the job to as low as reasonably practicable.
  • Hold team leaders and supervisors at all levels accountable for the health and safety performance of their teams.
  • Ensure compliance with all national and industry legislations related to our operations.


As part of our commitment of delivering long term economic and social benefits to the communities we operate in as well as neighboring communities, in December 2017, a team from Ankor made donations to two orphanages in Ghana. These Orphanages were:

  • St. Anna’s Children’s Home and Academy, Winneba (Central Region)
  • Egyam Children’s Home, Egyam (Western Region)

Ankor intends to undertake more of such donations to deprived and deserving people during its years of operation.
