We have an established written policy and safety program for the protection of our employees from injury or occupational disease, and all staff (including workers, supervisors and management) are dedicated to the continuing objective of reducing risk of injury. We strive to ensure that our employees receive adequate safety awareness training, and to work in compliance with the law and safe work practices, common to our industry.
Our Health and Safety policy is supported by our Health and Safety Committees, and includes regular safety inspections of the workplace, training in key safety areas, such as confined space entry and use of fall arrest systems, supply of protective equipment to employees, and other program elements identified from time to time.
