HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY STATEMENT
Senior management of Tambro Construction Ltd (Tambro) is vitally interested in the health and safety of all workers. Tambro’s ongoing objective is to protect workers from workplace incident, injury and occupational illness and disease and to be good stewards of the environment by re-using, reducing and recycling when possible.
NO JOB IS CONSIDERED TO BE SO
URGENT THAT SAFETY CAN BE JEOPARDIZED.
Health and safety awareness must be planned and integrated into all workplace activities. Senior management will make every known effort to provide a healthy and safe work environment. All workplace parties must be dedicated to the objective of reducing the risk of injury and illness in the workplace.
As an employer, Tambro is ultimately responsible for worker health and safety. As senior management, project managers, site superintendents and foremen we are committed to taking every reasonable precaution to protect workers from harm. We expect that all workplace parties will work together to exceed the minimums as prescribed by legislation.
TAMBRO IS COMMITTED TO THE CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT AND GROWTH OF THE HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
To further support this commitment of the senior management-office personnel, site superintendents and workers share a joint responsibility to implement and maintain an Internal Responsibility System (IRS) directed at reducing and preventing incidents, injuries and accidents resulting in occupational injuries, diseases and illnesses.
All site superintendents and foremen must use safe work practices and are responsible and accountable for the safety of workers under their supervision. This includes the responsibility to ensure that machinery and equipment are safe and that workers follow established safe work practices and procedures. Workers must receive adequate training in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety.
Every office personnel, site superintendent, foreman and worker must protect their own health and safety by following the Occupational Health & Safety Act, Regulations for Construction Projects, Regulations for Industrial Establishments, Regulation 1101 and the Workplace Safety Insurance Act in addition to workplace specific legislation that governs safe work
practices and procedures, in addition to TAMBRO’s Policies and Procedures. All hazards must be immediately reported to site superintendent so the hazard can be addressed.
All workplace parties must be united in establishing and sustaining a safe work environment in every workplace activity. Continual commitment to health and safety is an essential part of this organization, at all levels.
Tambro is committed to the continual improvement and growth of the Health and Safety Management System (HSMS). This is reflected by participation in the WSIB Safety Group Program and through effective administration and ongoing training of our HSMS. We encourage and welcome your participation in these continual commitments.
