Health and Safety

 

Professional Excavators & Construction Inc. is committed to protecting the health, safety and social well-being of all employees, contractors, clients, and the public.  Management strives to provide employees with a workplace that is free of violence and harassment. Employees at every level within the company are accountable for the company’s overall safety initiatives and responsible for ensuring that the safety program is continually updated and maintained.  This policy has been created to ensure that all employees feel that they are provided a work environment that does not put their personal health, including both physical and psychological,  or safety at risk or that of others working around them.

In fulfilling this commitment to protect people, property and the public, management will encourage and support the participation in the safety program as well as provide and maintain a safe and healthy work environment exceeding industry and legislative standards. An injury and incident free workplace is our goal.

Although rigid adherence to the company health and safety program will help to reduce incidents in the workplace, health and safety on the job can be achieved only through application of the information provided in this program, combined with the knowledge and experience of each individual involved.

All Professional Excavators & Construction Inc. employees and contractors are responsible for obeying all safety rules, following recommended safe work procedures, wearing and using personal protective equipment when and where required, participating in safety training programs and informing supervisors of any unsafe acts or work conditions.

No employee or individual working under the supervision of Professional Excavators & Construction Inc. shall participate in any activities they deem unsafe; everyone has the right and responsibility to refuse unsafe work.
