HEALTH & SAFETY
Company Health and Safety Policy
Arcom Technical Services Ltd. has developed, and is committed to, a robust and effective health & safety program that protects all employees, property and the public from accidents. Our objective is to utilize this health and safety program to reduce the number of injuries and illnesses to an absolute minimum, becoming a leader in our industry by doing so.
All personnel, including management, employees, sub-contractors and visitors are responsible and accountable for minimizing accidents within the construction projects of our clients. This is accomplished by our commitment to following all Safe Work Practices and Safe Job Procedures that are clearly defined in the Safety Manual.
Arcom Technical Services ltd. has a Safety Administrator responsible for maintaining a health and safety program by ensuring that all policies are in compliance with Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) standards. In addition, the Safety Administrator ensures that all COR (Certificate of Recognition) requirements are being met, through such actions as safety orientations, jobsite inspections, training and the review and updating of policies and procedures as they are needed.
Complete participation in this Safety Program is required. Arcom Technical Services Ltd. will provide maintained equipment, suitable training and fully developed procedures as they are needed. All personnel (managers, employees, sub-contractors and visitors) are responsible for following all procedures, working safely and wherever possible being proactive in improving safety measures.
Arcom Technical Services Ltd. will develop a comprehensive Safety Plan for each worksite. This plan will include, but is not limited to, hazard identification, safety meeting schedule, emergency response plan, fire/explosion procedures and medical/first aid provisions. All personnel, including managers, employees, sub-contractors and visitors, will be orientated to each site they are working on/visiting, and will be made aware of their rights, obligations, responsibilities, and accountabilities regarding health and safety onsite, as laid out by the Safety Plan. The dedicated Safety Officer will maintain the Safety Plan and ensure it is kept current through site visits and audits.
Our goal is an accident free workplace
Only through a continuous safety and loss control effort can we accomplish this.
*The safety information in this policy does not take precedence over applicable government legislation, with which all employees should be familiar.
