Safety Policy Statement
Ocean Park Mechanical is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for all of its employees. It is the company policy to provide top quality service while taking all reasonable steps to prevent injury to employees, the client and the public. To achieve this objective, the company will comply with the OH&S/OSHA Regulation and all applicable federal, provincial, state, local, and industry safety regulations. We cannot meet this goal without the full cooperation from all personnel. We also expect all subcontractors to abide by the same high standards we demand of our own employees. This cooperation is needed and expected.
Management personnel are responsible for the health and safety of the employees and for the provision of safe working conditions. Management promotes and supports the company health and safety program and ensures that all employees are informed of what is expected of them regarding health and safety.
Project Managers are responsible for the promotion of the safety program on projects and to ensure that supervisors, foremen, workers, and subcontractors comply with the program. Project Managers will also ensure that staff receive appropriate education and training regarding changes to regulations and current practices.
The Corporate Safety Officer is responsible for the coordination and implementation of the safety program and applicable OH&S/OSHA Regulation on the construction site.
Supervisors are responsible and accountable for ensuring safety instruction is provided to all new and reassigned employees prior to assignment of their duties and those safe work procedures and regulations are enforced. Supervisors ensure that there is a regular inspection of practices and conditions in the area of their control and that prompt corrective action is taken to eliminate hazards. Foremen set a good example by following all safety regulations and by promoting all safety activities addressed in the safety program.
Workers and subcontractors must observe all safety rules and regulations and conduct themselves in a manner that does not endanger the well being of themselves or others, or cause property damage. Workers and subcontractors must report all accidents and injuries immediately and are encouraged to submit recommendations for improved safety measures. Subcontractors need to provide their own appropriate safety equipment where required by WorkSafe BC or OSHA/WISHA and provide for their own Workers Compensation coverage.
Visitors must comply with the company safety program while on our construction sites.
The company health and safety program is designed in the best interests of all personnel, subcontractors, visitors, and customers. The company believes accident prevention and efficient production go hand-in-hand and, accordingly, insists on dedicated participation in its requirements.
