Safety

Safety is our first priority.

Safety Commitment
As our people are our most important asset, we are devoted to providing a safe and healthy work environment for all our employees. From the award-winning projects we are involved with to being an industry employer of choice, safety is the foundation of our commitment to excellence in all areas of our business.


Safety Culture
Active safety involvement from all levels within the organization ensures that we work in a spirit of consultation and cooperation to promote and sustain a safe and healthy work environment. From the management team providing all the necessary tools and resources to maintain a comprehensive health and safety program to the worker who is responsible for taking reasonable care to protect his/her own health and safety and the health and safety of others, we are committed to workplace culture that is continually engaged in achieving the highest safety performance.

Since safety is taken very seriously, we employ over a hundred Field Safety Representatives (FSRs) who are certified by the BC Safety Authority. Each FSR can be named FSR on a contractor license and on permits and is authorized to sign declaration for work performed, ensuring the work complies with the Safety Standards Act. In addition to employing safety representatives on our jobs, we have invested in full-time safety professionals to ensure our high standards are upheld. Many in-house training have been conducted by our safety professionals.

We celebrate our safety successes through an incentive / recognition program.
