Responsibility, commitment and resolve are essential to the success of this policy and starts with us all:

  • Company Responsibility: The company commitments include ensuring a safe workplace and prioritizing health and safety. The Company will promote safe systems of work and regularly audit these systems to measure their effectiveness.
  • Supervisors’ Responsibility:  Supervisors will communicate and implement safety plans, including safety training. When designing, implementing, or approving work systems, we will prioritize safety as a primary factor and prevent work under unsafe conditions.
  • Personnel/Contractors Responsibility: All personnel/contractors have a responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others, and must take immediate action to remove or secure any unsafe condition, immediately notifying their supervisor. Personnel/contractors must take steps to identify hazards associated with their work and where identified undertake a job safety analyses and implement control measures to ensure safe systems of work.
