Merko  sites are inspected by designated occupational health and safety coordinators. Within the company, the company’s working environment specialist, the director responsible for electrical installations and the quality specialist for each site conduct supervision and keep current all relevant documentation in the field. These specialists make regular rounds on construction sites and fill in a form with comments on each round, along with suggestions for better organization of occupational safety.
