Commitment_to_Safety

We take safety seriously. With comprehensive training programs and documented guidelines, we’re ensuring the health and welfare of our employees, customers, project partners, and visitors to our sites.

How We Make Safety a Priority

Every step of every project has employees at all levels assessing risk and adhering to safe practices. This safety culture is the backbone of our business, and helps to guarantee that all workers go home safely at night. The guiding principles include:

“It doesn’t matter if you make any money if you don’t go home.”

Randy Danchuk,
Health and Safety Manager

  • Maintaining a comprehensive health, safety, and welfare program that includes assigned responsibility for compliance
  • Continuously identifying hazards in the workplace and either eliminating them or reducing the risk associated with them
  • Reviewing all accidents and improving processes to ensure it doesn’t happen again
  • Providing appropriate training and instruction
  • Enforcing this policy equally among employees, contractors, and visitors

The Company’s Safety Management Manuals are the guide to safe operation for both plant and project-based activities. These manuals conform to the Canada Labour Code and WorkSafeBC guidelines, and we ensure that our employees know and comply with the requirements of the policies and safety rules that specifically apply to any plant or worksite.

The results of this commitment to safety show: we’ve been recognized by the BC Ready Mix Concrete Association with a 2011 Safety Performance Award for having no lost-time accidents during the year. And as part of the Interoute Construction Ltd. group of companies, we’ve contributed to an impeccable safety record:

  • BCRMCA 2011 Safety Performance Award (50,000-99,000 hours producer), for having reduced lost-time accidents from the previous year
  • 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 Colas Vanguard Award, for improvements in health and safety over the past year
  • 2.5 million man hours since the last lost-time accident
