Megawide faithfully honors a commitment to health, safety and environment (HSE). This is demonstrated in the Company’s implementation of HSE programs, which prioritizes the health and well-being of all employees.
This dedication has yielded noteworthy results. From January to June 2023, Megawide recorded 25 million safe man hours across all project sites—a considerable jump from the 24 million hours logged in 2022.
