JAK Civil is committed to reduction of pollution, minimising consumption and controlling waste within their activities. JAK Civil actively seek to minimise their environmental footprint, complying with regulatory bodies, and ensuring their employees and contractors are fully cognisant of their responsibilities to promote an environmental ethic.
Environmental sustainability is important to JAK Civil, and from the initial stages of the tender and quotation process, through procurement to disposal of waste, we aim to reduce the embodied energy in production through methodical planning and use of systems.
Disposal of waste products and environmental considerations are an active part of each workplace task and risk assessment. Landfill is stockpiled and re-used for other projects. Methodical planning is undertaken to ensure minimal machine movement on site and to reduce double handling, thereby minimising fuel use and reducing maintenance. JAK Civil store waste concrete at their licensed waste disposal site for re-use as road base and other civil works.
JAK Civil (under Hovey Property) is licensed to extract sand from its pit north of Bunbury. Environmental studies into flora and fauna were required prior to receiving approval from the Dept. of Environment and Local Government Authority.
JAK Civil is committed to demonstrating and ensuring safety, environmental and quality responsibility and compliance based on the relevant ISO Standards, the standards specified in contracts, Codes of Practice and all relevant Acts, Legislation and Regulations.
JAK Civil’s commitment encompasses all employees and stakeholders. Continual monitoring of total performance through our System Process Management Review ensures the ongoing suitability and improvement of operations to maintain excellent safety, environmental, quality and cost standards.
JAK Civil recognises its moral and legal responsibility to provide a safe and healthy work environment for employees, contractors, clients and visitors, and is committed to ensuring operations do not place the local community at risk of injury, illness or property damage.
