Each employee is accountable for their personal safety and the safety of those around them on every job we work together, 365 days a year. Every time we plan a project, pick up a tool or turn on a piece of equipment, we consciously practice safety. Each small action we take contributes to the overall safety of our workforce.
At TIW, safety, quality and productivity go hand-in-hand; we’ve proven that as our health and safety practices improve, so do results. From analyzing workplace hazards to create a customized safety plan for every job, conducting ongoing training and giving employees, partners and subcontractors stop work authority, we foster an exceptional safety culture.
Beyond adhering to government safety regulations and industry standards, everyone from the president to our employees and the certified tradespeople we hire commits to communicating proactively and taking every precaution to ensure their own and others’ safety.
This Safety Program does not take precedence over provincial O. H. & S. Regulations.
Safety is our first and most important core value. At TIW, our culture explicitly reinforces the need to build safety into everything we do. For us, safety isn’t just a promise; it’s a mindset.
“We believe that every job-related accident and occupational injury is preventable and dedicate ourselves to ensuring each and every worker goes home safely at the end of the day”
The senior management of TIW Steel Platework Inc. believes that a truly professional and successful company must have a good safety record including the protection and preservation of the natural environment. Therefore, we endorse our Safety Program as the framework within which we will execute our work in the pursuit of a safety performance that will further reduce our accident frequency – the objective being a frequency of zero.
In order to achieve this objective we insist on the involvement and co-operation of Company employees (and subcontractors) at all levels. Human suffering and damage to property and equipment can be avoided. We have the expertise to accomplish this and herewith commit our intent to do so.
Management and field supervision are responsible for providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment. Employees and subcontractors are responsible for proper conduct accordingly.
All Employees and subcontractors are expected to be familiar with, and work within the Company’s Safety Program, the Provincial Health and Safety Act, Regulations and Guidelines pertaining to their work.
Ongoing Environmental Commitment
Along with ensuring health and safety in the workplace, TIW’s ownership, management and employees care for our environment and take action to ensure we leave a legacy our children can be proud of. Environmental safety goes hand in hand with occupational health and safety, and that’s why we take specific measures to protect the communities we live in.
Our environmentally friendly mindset is firmly entrenched in everything we do, from improving the efficiency of our buildings to implementing best practices and highlighting issues during daily discussions with workers.
“Environmental safety goes hand in hand with occupational health and safety, and that’s why we take specific measures to protect the communities we live in”
