Corporate Social Responsibility

As such, OP is committed to upholding the highest standards of corporate social responsibility in its business operations and is committed to:

  • Promoting environmental protection;

  • Working with suppliers who share our values.

Charitable Contributions

OP is mindful of the community’s cultural, social, and economic needs in the areas where we operate and, where possible, assists in the development of local projects and charitable causes. We also assist employees who want to raise funds for charity by contributing to charitable causes and activities, as well as providing time off.  OP works with local community charities on a corporate level as well as through its work sites. This collaboration raises funds for local charities whilst also involving OP’s local community employees in charitable contributions, most notably by sponsoring events at local community schools.

Inclusivity and Equal Opportunity

OP is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and diversity in employment and recognises that this is critical to the organization’s success and growth. To that end, OP makes it a priority to select, recruit, train, and promote the best candidates based on job suitability. Fairly treats all employees and applicants, regardless of race, gender, marital status, age, nationality, ethnic origin, religious belief, or disability, and ensures that no employee is harassed or intimidated.

OP recognises that our people are our most valuable asset and the key to the company’s continued development and success, and as such, we are committed to providing careers and working environments where our people can reach their full potential; OP recognises that this is not only the right thing to do, but it also ensures that the company attracts and retains the best people.

Workplace Health, Safety, and Welfare

To OP, employee welfare, health, and safety are of the utmost importance. It is OP’s policy to develop and enhance health and safety standards that will result in the avoidance and reduction of hazards and guarantee that the business complies with all health and safety laws.

In order to offer safe and healthy working conditions in all of its worksites, OP makes every effort that is reasonable and practical. All employees have a responsibility to act responsibly and take all reasonable steps to avoid hurting themselves or others.

All OP employees are eligible to participate in the company’s official welfare programme, which includes a variety of lifestyle and wellness activities and benefits

Suppliers and Subcontractors

We consider the interests of all our stakeholders, including our employees, clients, suppliers, and subcontractors, as well as the local community and the environment in which we operate. OP aims to be honest and fair in our interactions with its suppliers and subcontractors. One of OP’s most valuable assets is its reputation, and as a leading regional provider of environmental emergency response services, upholding the highest standards of morality, ethics, and justice is seen as being of utmost significance.
