POINT BLANCHE:— Social corporate responsibility is important for Seven Seas Water, and as such the company gives special attention to World Safety Day by hosting its own World week for Safety and Health which is observed in week 17 of this year. This year’s theme set by the International Labor Organization (ILO) is ‘Anticipate, prepare and respond to crises: Invest now in resilient occupational safety and health systems.’

“Seven Seas Water (St. Maarten) could not let this opportunity go unnoticed since the company subscribes to its role as a conscientious corporate citizen with a high level of corporate social responsibilities,” said Seven Seas Water (St. Maarten) Managing Director of Franklyn Richards.

With this in mind, Seven Seas Water (St. Maarten) continues to engage in training of staff regarding occupational safety and health (OSH) systems, in order to face crises now and in the future, drawing on lessons learned and experiences from the world of work, said Richards.

The company considers adhering to a safe and healthy work culture an important aspect of its corporate responsibility and sees as benefits, among other things, greater productivity, higher performance, and lower abstention rates at work.

To further promote safety and in giving true content to social corporate responsibility, Seven Seas Water decided to join forces with the St. Maarten Fire Department. Seven Seas Water and the Fire Department share similar social responsibilities with regard to promoting safety, creating safe conditions while at the same time protecting the environment.
