Safety Policy

Management of MB Ford Construction Ltd. is vitally interested in the health and safety of its employees.  Protection of employees from injury or occupational disease is a major continuing objective. MB Ford Construction Ltd. will make every effort to provide a safe, healthy work environment.  Our goal is to eliminate or minimize the hazards that cause accidents and injuries. All supervisors and workers must be dedicated to the continuing objective of reducing risk of injury.

MB Ford Construction Ltd., as employer, is ultimately responsible for worker health and safety.  As president of MB Ford Construction Ltd., I give you my personal promise that every reasonable precaution will be taken for the protection of workers.  Any accident in this company will be viewed as a serious matter and will be thoroughly investigated.

Supervisors will be held accountable for the health and safety of workers under their supervision.  Supervisors are responsible to ensure that machinery and equipment are safe and that workers work in compliance with established safe work practices and procedures.  Workers must receive adequate training in their specific tasks to protect their health and safety.

Every worker must protect his or her own health and safety by working in compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and applicable Regulations and with safe work practices and procedures established by this company, its clients, and the general contractor(s).  Compliance with this policy will be reviewed regularly at all employee levels and violations of this policy will be recorded. Repeated disregard or willful violations of this policy by any subcontractor or employee at any level may be considered cause for discipline in accordance with the Occupational Health & Safety Act and the existing laws.

It is in the best interest of all parties to consider health and safety in every activity.  Commitment to health and safety must form an integral part of this organization, from the president to the workers.
