Montrose has an in-depth understanding of safety and ethical conduct issues through our experience in designing and implementing projects in complex and challenging environments.
Political instability, violence and criminality, transport safety, medical and health risks exist in many of the countries in which we work.
Montrose takes its responsibility to provide duty of care seriously. We have aligned our targets with industry leaders and have policies and procedures in place to ensure safety and security risks are identified at the outset. Mitigation plans are in place throughout the life of a project to reduce both the likelihood and potential impact of internal and external risks on the security of personnel and effective and timely delivery of the work. These plans are further elaborated and adapted at various stages of the work as new developments arise or the implementing environment changes.
Compliance with international laws and standards with respect to corruption and bribery is a critical consideration for designing and implementing work. We ensure our work is fully compliant with UK, US and other international laws and standards. We have policies and procedures in place at corporate and project levels which clearly identify rules and guidelines around engagement of public officials and potential conflicts of interest, bribery and corruption, payment and receipt of gifts and hospitality, financial controls including anti-fraud guidelines, procurement and recruitment.
Ethical conduct risks are integrated into our overall approach to risk management, with identification of risks and mitigation measures mapped out from the earliest planning stages and reviewed routinely throughout the life of the contract. All staff and consultants are given comprehensive training on our policies and procedures.
