Our Commitment to Site Safety

Safety First

We are committed to keeping people safe – our employees, our clients – everybody.

It’s an approach that’s deeply embedded in our values. We’re all about putting people first and doing the right thing. We never rest on our laurels, determined to continuously improve how we work.

We take our duty of care very seriously. We’re always looking for ways to reduce the risk of incidents and/or injury. Our Scotford Fennessy Site Safety program helps us maintain our focus on safety in our day-to-day activities. We operate under the philosophy of Think Talk Act to guide and measure our safety behaviour.
