Beta Healthcare Calendar Event

Safety Health & Enviroment Management

Echo Balance

Eco-balance is a key issue in the current discussions and in saving our planet.

Depletion of fossil fuels CO2 emissions and global warming are a threat to our ecologic and economic balance.

Our company aims to contribute to ensuring eco-balance by taking initiatives towards energy saving and low carbon emissions.

Environmental management protocols are being developed in accordance with ISO 14001 to enable the company to participate in Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) in a near future.

Water Conservation

Beta Healthcare takes water as a resource which is limited and therefore continually puts in measures to conserve water. It comes up with Environmental Management Programmes with set targets as part of its annual objectives in Water Conservation.

Process waste water is treated to ensure set parameters are met before the water is discharged into the public sewer as per the requirements of EMCA Water Regulations of 2006. The company has in place a waste water treatment facility with enough capacity to treat the waste water to the required quality as required under the Water Quality Regulations.

Carbon Disclosure

The company compiles its energy consumption for use in calculating its carbon emission equivalent. There are measures put in place to reduce carbon emissions as part of the company’s Annual Environmental Management Programmes.

Energy Conservation

Beta Healthcare has in place an energy policy. Energy audits have been carried out and energy conservation programmes initiated as per requirements under Energy Act. The energy conservation programmes are taken as part of annual Environmental management programmes and objectives are set with targets to be achieved in energy use. Continuous monitoring of the programmes is done to ensure achievement of the set objectives and targets.

Air Emissions

Air quality measurements are done on an annual basis to ensure that what is emitted is within required regulatory requirements. Exhaust emissions from the boiler, generator and industrial trucks are measured to ensure that emissions levels are within specified regulatory limits as provided under EMCA-Air Quality Regulations, 2015. Measurements are done for particulate and VOCs in the work stations to ensure personnel are working in a conducive environment as per the requirements under Occupational Health and Safety Act-Hazardous Substance Rules and WHO guidelines.

Waste Management

Structured waste management processes are implemented. Continual improvement initiatives are undertaken on the waste handling procedures.

As per the Cap 244, the Pharmacy and Poisons Act, Laws of Kenya, all pharmaceutical wastes must be handled responsibly owing to the security risk around pharmaceutical products. The pharmaceutical waste and other hazardous wastes are handled in accordance with the Environment Management and Coordination Act (EMCA), Waste Regulations of 2006.

The wastes are segregated, recorded, properly stored before they are disposed off. All wastes are disposed off using NEMA approved waste handlers for transportation and disposal sites. Waste recycling and reuse opportunities have been implemented for non-hazardous waste.

The central waste yard at Beta has been designed for more efficient handling and compliance to the Waste Management Regulations and to the Aspen standards for waste management.

Accident Rate

Beta Healthcare has under taken a comprehensive Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment and kept in place mitigation measures for the identified risks. This has been done to proactively prevent incidents at the workplace. All incidents are investigated and corrective actions proposed and implemented to prevent reoccurrence. Key performance indicators are in place to measure SHE performance in terms of accident rates. The company aims at having minimum cases of accidents in line with its SHE policy.

Compliance

Beta Healthcare takes compliance to regulatory requirements as key to its operations. It has a legal register which is updated quarterly and a legal unit which aids in updating the company on legal issues. Legal audits are done annually to check the level of compliance and propose corrective measures for any noncompliance noted.

Crisis Management

As part of its business continuity strategy, Beta Healthcare has identified the emergency situations it anticipates and kept in place emergency response plans. It has procedures for response to the emergencies and also tests these procedures periodically to ensure adequate preparedness. All employees are trained on steps to take during emergency situations.

Measures kept in place as part of emergency preparedness include having a fire safety policy in place.
