Metercor strongly recognizes that all workers have the right to a safe and healthy work environment in accordance with industry standards, and in compliance with legislative requirements. In fulfilling this commitment, we will strive to eliminate any foreseeable hazards which may result in accidents, personal injury, illness or property damage.
Our health and safety management system is a proactive approach to minimizing the risk of injury or illness to workers. Metercor’s program includes:
All employees are equally responsible for minimizing accidents within our facilities and on our job sites. Metercor provides all employees with the training and resources necessary to meet their safety responsibilities. Safe work practices and procedures are clearly defined within our Health and Safety manuals for all employees to follow.
All management activities will comply with Metercor safety requirements as they relate to the planning, operation and maintenance of facilities and equipment. All employees will perform their jobs in accordance with established procedures and safe work practices. Responsibility and accountability roles for managers, supervisors and workers can be found in Metercor’s Health and Safety manual.
Accidental loss can be controlled through good management, in combination with active employee involvement. Safety is the direct responsibility of all owners, managers, supervisors and workers.
Our safety system is compliant with annual audit requirements, and presents Metercor with the opportunity to continuously improve. Employees injured on the job are to follow Metercor’s procedures as outlined in the Employee training and safety manuals, which includes modified duties and rehabilitation practices.
Our success has evolved with the safety of all our employees at the heart of our operations, and is reflected through our commitment to providing the appropriate training, tools, processes, and supervision. I trust all of you will join me in a personal commitment to make safety a way of life.
