Safety is one of our core values, and therefore one of the most talked-about, trained-about and thought-about subjects in the group. Safety represents the essence of FM business continuity and therefore, consists for us a business driver, and a best-practice factor. We are proud of our very low ratio of EHS events, and very high ratio of rectification. We see it as our duty to maintain these ratios and continually improve them. In order to continue succeeding in this critical field we foster and invest in:

  • Ramot EHS internal department: led by an EHS engineer, the department focuses on developing, driving, managing and auditing both internal and client-focused EHS programs. We believe this is critical in order to generate a meaningful and fruitful discussion that combines FM expertise with clients’ culture
  • Ramot EHS Committee gathers at least six times per year and is a cross-account committee        which encompasses various experiences accumulated through our business with our clients. We have found that, although challenging to maintain, this is a uniquely effective platform to:
    • Share updates and changes in statutory or otherwise requirements
    • Share experience on events, programs
    • Discuss, explore, evaluate and decide next steps
  • Expert local EHS partners who provide local expertise, statutory knowledge and support the implementation of our programs. Fostering long-term relationship with carefully selected and certified local experts allows continuity of service and control, as well as, adaptability to the various changes occurring in the different markets
  • Training and professional programs:
    • Personal – from On-boarding training through periodical EHS training, each staff member will go through EHS training in the course of every year
    • Per-Profession training – additional extensive EHS training focusing on elements which are unique to professions (electrical, HVAC, Fire etc.)
    • Per-Job training – additional training/tutoring for specific works, which we have identified as high-risk. This is performed regardless of the EHS training level of the performers
  • Certification:
    • Regular service providers must be certified for EHS compliance as part of their on-boarding process.
    • Additionally we apply suppliers’ self-certification programs in order to maintain and continually raise awareness and focus on risks and liabilities
  • Analysis and reaction:
    • We have a clear reporting set in case of an EHS event, including Root Cause Analysis, Rectification Acts and Training Acts
    • All such events are logged and shared through the EHS Committee and case-study discussions
