It is the policy of S&R Mechanical to perform work in the safest possible manner consistent with the Ontario Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and applicable Regulations for Construction Projects and industry standards. Protection of employees, from injury or occupational illness, is a major continuing objective. Management, office staff, supervisors and workers must be dedicated to the continuing objective of reducing risk of injury. As president of S&R Mechanical, I give my personal promise that every reasonable precaution will be taken for the protection of workers.
S&R Mechanical will strive to eliminate any hazards that may result in damage to property or personal injuries by assigning general and specific responsibilities for workplace health and safety. Management and supervisors will be held accountable for the health and safety of workers under their supervision. At all times, we will strive to ensure that safe and healthy work conditions are maintained in all work areas. We further ensure that all workers will receive adequate training in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety.
As a condition of employment, workers will be expected to protect their own health and safety by working in compliance with the OHSA and its applicable Regulations, industry standards and the safe work practices and procedures established by S&R Mechanical. The company Health and Safety Program will be reviewed with employees upon hiring.
Any subcontractor hired to perform work or to provide a service for S&R Mechanical is responsible for ensuring that their workers work in compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act, applicable Regulations, any other legislation relating to the work/services being provided and the S&R Mechanical Health and Safety Policies and Program.
It is the goal of S&R Mechanical to eliminate or minimize hazards that may cause accidents and injuries as well as those which create health hazards. All accidents will be viewed as a serious matter and will be thoroughly investigated and, if necessary, changes will be adopted to minimize the likelihood of a repeat incident and/or accident.
Compliance with this policy will be reviewed regularly at all employee levels. Violations will be
recorded. Repeated disregard or willful violations of this policy by any employee or subcontractor, at any level, may be considered cause for disciplinary action in accordance with the S&R Mechanical Enforcement Policy and existing laws.
S&R Mechanical recognizes that working in a safe environment is a right for its employees and further recognizes that the benefits of working in a safe and healthy work environment extend to S&R Mechanical employees, their families and friends.
The management of S&R Mechanical is committed to the prevention of workplace violence and is ultimately responsible for employee health and safety. We will take whatever steps are reasonable to protect our employees from workplace violence from all sources.
Violent behaviour in the workplace is unacceptable from anyone. This policy applies to management and all employees. Everyone is expected to uphold this policy and to work together to prevent workplace violence.
There is a workplace violence program that implements this policy. It includes measures and procedures to protect employees from workplace violence, a means of summoning immediate assistance and a process for employees to report incidents, or raise concerns.
S&R Mechanical as the employer, will ensure this policy and the supporting program are implemented and maintained and that all employees have the appropriate information and instruction to protect them from violence in the workplace.
Every employee must work in compliance with this policy and the supporting program. All employees are encouraged to raise any concerns about workplace violence and to report any violent incidents or threats.
Management pledges to investigate and deal with all incidents and complaints of workplace violence in a fair and timely manner, respecting the privacy of all concerned as much as possible.
