Environment, health and safety (EHS) is key for sustainable business. All employers are bound by an increasing number of laws and regulations to ensure occupational health and safety of their employees, regardless of the industry in which they operate. This requires extensive planning, training, and procedures to be put in place to avoid accidents or to deal with emergencies.
In other words, environmental protection, occupational health, and safety at work, are all essential components of modern business practices, across all industries and sectors. Companies are being called upon to respond to regulatory requirements, the implications of which must become part of day-to-day operations.
Moreover, following the boom in the oil and gas industry in recent years across the Mediterranean region, the need for greater environmental protection has become all the more important. In light of these developments, RPT Group has positioned itself as a regional leader in both planning and safeguarding the environment.
As part of its wide range of services, the RPT Group provides EHS services and consultancy to all its clients, with specialised companies staffed by experienced professionals who can help navigate new and established businesses through the EHS nexus.
Unique in its scope and expertise, ENVI Services is the suitable tailor made partner for businesses interested in implementing the most up-to-date and state-of-the-art processes and infrastructure related to environment, health and safety. ENVI supports businesses receive the accreditation necessary for operation in today’s competitive business environment, including ISO 14001 and ISO 18001. The company also conducts research, submitting scientific information and analysis, releasing it readily available through outreach and education, so that everyone can make informed decisions about the future.
Despite the fact that shipping is the least environmentally damaging form of commercial transport, with a substantial reduction in marine pollution over the last 15 years, the threat of large-scale environmental impact remains, particularly in the form of oil spills. The Mediterranean region is one of the busiest shipping avenues, which necessitates the availability of services that can minimise this risk of pollution. This need led to the establishment of VSS-EPE, founded in 2014, with the company offering the full range of marine environment protection and spill response services in Cyprus, and aims to develop the required mechanism to deal with accidents at the local, regional and national levels. VSS-EPE is currently the Oil Spill Response Services contractor of the VTT Vasiliko Terminal, as well as the Electricity Authority of Cyprus for the Vasiliko and Dhekelia power stations.
