Responsibility, commitment and resolve are essential to the success of this policy, starting with:

  • Company Responsibility: The company ranks health and safety as its top priority and is committed to providing a safe workplace. 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. They will consider safety as a prime factor when designing, implementing or approving work systems and prevent work where unsafe conditions are observed.
  • 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 analysis and implement control measures to ensure safe systems of work.
