Safety Goggles

Health & Safety

OL & Edward is a construction company that enforces the highest level of employee safety and environmental consciousness at all of our work sites. Our full-time employees receive refreshment courses on their skills as well as additional training to better their competence. Our senior staff has higher education, selected on projects to match their experience. Our skilled workers and laubourers undergo qualification checks and when it is time to build we make sure they’re familiar with every task they will do.

 

Our professionals provide:

  • provide health, safety and first aid

  • jobsite safety analysis

  • accident investigation

  • process hazard assessments and other safety, environmental or health need

 

We also inspect our plant and equipment through frequent checks to maintain the quality and accuracy of testing and inspecting of our work.

 

Safety Philosophy

  1.  As a condition of employment, all Supervisors and Managers are required to show construction training and should be certified in First Aid/CPR.

  2.  All OL & Edward employees and craftspeople receive safety orientation upon hire and are required to maintain a current drug-free certification. Our entire team is subject to random and post-incident substance abuse testing.

  3.  Compliance and hazard mitigation training is managed by all staff to comply with duty of care of others, who are overseen by our Director and ultimately the senior management staff.

  4.  On site, supervisors perform pre-shift job briefings that address the scope of work and the hazards associated with the tasks at hand. Supervisor and Site Mnaagers also hold weekly safety meetings with the craftspeople on the job. These meetings consist of hazard recognition and mitigation.

  5.  Supervisors are rewarded for producing an injury-free workplace.

  6.  Field employees are rewarded for producing an injury free workplace and creating a safe work environment.

  7.  Compromises of OL & Edward health and safety culture are promptly and appropriately addressed, penalties for unsafe acts range from written warnings to immediate termination of employment.

  8.  Project sites are frequently audited and all findings are forwarded to Executive Management for review. Sites that are less than 100% compliance are required to correct issues immediately and implement corrective actions that prevent reoccurrence.

  9.  Subcontractor qualifications are based on the previous three-year history of their incident and experience modification rates. They must present appropriate training data verifying that all persons are qualified to perform their assigned tasks.

  10.  Subcontractors are audited frequently over the course of work and are required to mitigate hazardous environments or acts immediately.

  11.  Before beginning work, subcontractors are required to sign our contract Safety Addendum, which binds them into adherence with all Health and Safety Executive (HSE) applicable to their scope of work, as well as compliance with OL & Edward rules that may exceed HSE’s regulations.

  12. Every OL & Edward employee, including subcontractors, have the “AUTHORITY TO STOP UNSAFE WORK”
