Ensuring a safe and healthy work environment is of paramount importance at U-RENT. Our team of Fire Fighters, First-Aiders and SHE representatives are committed to adhering to the highest health and safety standards to protect the well-being of our employees, visitors, and stakeholders.


At U-RENT a comprehensive approach to health and safety encompasses several key aspects:

Risk Assessment and Management

Identifying potential hazards and assessing risks associated with various tasks and processes. This involves evaluating the likelihood of incidents and their potential impact on employees and the company.

Health and Safety Policies

Developing and implementing clear and well-defined health and safety policies that outline the company's commitment to maintaining a safe work environment. These policies are communicated to all employees.

Training and Education

Providing regular training sessions and workshops to educate employees about safety procedures, emergency protocols, and the proper use of equipment. This ensures that everyone is aware of potential risks and knows how to respond appropriately.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Ensuring that employees have access to the necessary PPE, such as helmets, gloves, masks, and goggles, to protect themselves from specific workplace hazards.
