Safety is first priority on all our jobsites for our workers and the entire project team. We have an excellent safety record and are committed to ensuring that effective measures are in place to protect the health and safety of our employees, customers, trade contractors, and the public.
We take a proactive approach to accident prevention and safety management with our comprehensive Occupational Health and Safety program. The program includes the support structures (safety policies and procedures, education and training) necessary to be effective and inclusive. We also have a Corporate Safety Officer at our head office who ensures our Health and Safety policy is implemented and enforced at each of our construction sites by the Site Safety Officer. The Corporate Safety Officer is able to act as a conduit for information and material between our site personnel and management, exhibiting due diligence, leadership and commitment to a safe and healthy workplace.
In order to ensure that the program components and direction are appropriately updated and improved to meet changes in workplace conditions, we conduct regular program reviews and formal audits against current health and safety regulations. We have partnered with WorkSafe BC through their ‘COR’ Program promoting excellence in the workplace. The program recognizes the proactive approach that we have taken to ensure a safe work environment and ensures the highest level of attention and support is provided for accident prevention and safety management on all of our Yellowridge jobsites.
