1.1 Safety Policy Statement
Steelgrid is committed to the safety and wellbeing of our employees, clients, the environment, and the general public. Safety is an integral part of our company’s operations and is a key component of both ours’ and our clients’ success.
Steelgrid will abide by all applicable legislation incorporated throughout our safety program while performing quality work in a timely and cost effective manner.
The company is responsible for the implementation and execution of the program. However, it must be recognized that Steelgrid supervisors, workers and sub-contractors all have a responsibility to actively contribute to, maintain and cooperate in attaining the objective of an injury-free workplace.
Employees, workers, sub-contractors, supervision, managers and suppliers shall observe all Steelgrid, WCB, WorkSafeBC, OHS, Mining Act and client safety rules, policies, procedures and regulations.
They shall conduct themselves in a manner that does not endanger the wellbeing of themselves or others and does not cause damage to property. All personnel shall report all unsafe conditions, incidents, accidents or injuries immediately and are encouraged to make recommendations for the continuous improvement of our safety program. Everyone has the right to refuse work in the presence of unsafe conditions.
All participants in the activities of our company that knowingly violate safety rules or do not fulfill their responsibilities with respect to maintaining a safe working environment will be held accountable and may face disciplinary action, dismissal and even potential legal action.
Promotion of healthy attitudes and work conditions within the jurisdiction of the company and its
work sites will contribute to the pride and wellbeing of everyone involved in the operation. Steelgrid prides itself on the excellent culture we have developed through constant promotion of a safe, healthy workplace.
