Safety is an integral part of our company’s operations. It is intended to protect our employees, clients, property, the environment and the public from accidents and unnecessary losses. Our participation in an ongoing Safety Program has credited us with our COR which is evaluated yearly. We are members of ISN and Complyworks.
Importance to our company:
There are many costs to accidents and unsafe work practices. The greatest costs are human costs. By protecting our employees we are also protecting their friends, families, fellow workers, management, the public and the environment from the far-reaching effects of serious accidents. We are also protecting our ability to continue doing business and employing others. In addition to protection lives, our safety program contributes to employee moral and pride because our employees participate in identifying safety needs and developing safe work procedures.
Employees, contractors and sub-contractors who knowingly violate safety rules will face disciplinary action, dismissal or legal action. Visitors may also face legal action if they knowingly disobey safety rules. In addition, the company may face legal action and fines for violations of regulatory requirements. Those individuals who do not fulfill their safety responsibilities will become accountable for any problems their negligence creates and may be liable under the law.
Everyone employed by PCM is responsible for maintaining the safety program and must comply with all Provincial and Federal Regulations. Managers and supervisors are responsible for identifying safety needs, communicating safety hazards, investigating hazardous conditions and accidents, providing training, supplying or wearing appropriate safety and personal protective equipment and ensuring that all equipment is properly maintained and meets legislated safety standards. Their role is supported by input from all employees.
All PCM employees and others on company work sites are responsible for obeying all safety rules, follow established safe work practices and procedures, wearing and using personal protective equipment as required. They must participate in safety training programs and inform managers of any unsafe work conditions that may exist. Everyone has the right and responsibility to refuse to work when it is unsafe to continue.
PCM’s goal is to conduct daily operations where we maintain a safe, accident-free workplace.
