Commitment to Safety
Infracon Construction is a COR Certified Company with certification in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Yukon Territory. We are eligible for certification across Canada and continue to add provinces and territories to our profile. Our commitment to safety is paramount and is reflected in our company policy statement and our health and safety program. Our comprehensive program meets or exceeds every standard set by WorksafeBC and has been audited both internally and externally since our certification in 2007.
This program is the centre of our operations as it provides our people with the means to perform their duties in a safe and productive manner. Our focus is on educating our people for the different responsibilities that each role plays in the development of a safe culture. When unforeseen events arise, we provide them with the knowledge and procedures to manage these events in a safe and effective way.
We are always improving our safety at Infracon. We value our employees and because of this, certain initiatives have been put into place to ensure every employee, contractor and site visitor goes home safe at night. Just a few of our initiatives are below:
- Our full-time safety staff work in collaboration with our crews and ensure the behavioural aspects of safety are visible, reinforced and encouraged with every step taken on site
- Infracon’s senior Management team leads an annual Safety Day for all staff that includes all personnel and involves a comprehensive review of our Health and Safety Program in conjunction with WorkSafeBC materials
