Health and Safety

 

Creating and maintaining a safe work environment is the most fundamental and important aspect of our work. Our commitment to safety extends beyond our employees and project owners to members of the general public who travel through our projects.

Professional Excavators & Construction Inc.’s health and safety programs promote a safe environment for everyone at the jobsite. Our crews will follow our own safe workplace practices plus any additional safety policies required by your company.

Professional Excavators & Construction Inc.’s site supervisors are responsible for ensuring that safe work practices are followed at each jobsite – and every employee is expected to do their part. Site supervisors are required to take Supervisor Training In Accident Reduction Techniques and Leadership for Safety Excellence through the Alberta Construction Safety Association, and Petroleum Tank Management through the Petroleum Tank Management Association of Alberta. Professional Excavators & Construction Inc.’s senior management and our full-time safety officer also ensure that our safe work practices are continually improved upon.

Professional Excavators & Construction Inc. received its Certificate of Recognition (COR) from Alberta Human Resources and Employment for its jobsite safety programs in 1994. As well, certification from the National Safety Council for the transportation side of our business was granted in May 2009. Regular safety audits conducted through the Alberta Motor Transport Association on the transportation business segment help us to further enhance our safety standards and work procedures.
