The construction of this project is always guided by and applies Occupational Safety and Health (K3) which is the main key and must be carried out so that both equipment, operating vehicles and all working human resources must comply with procedures so that zero accident is still achieved. Especially for jobs that have the potential to disrupt traffic, we will actively inform road users so that they can check before traveling or taking alternative routes," concluded Prajudi.
