It’s safe to say: our record speaks for itself
As our record can attest, safety is at the forefront of all NEDLAW Roofs activities. Our focus is to ensure compliance with all applicable safety laws, codes and issues and eliminate all accidents.
Our safety culture
All staff are fully trained in our safety procedures and guidelines, worker responsibilities and the safe handling of equipment and materials. We hold monthly safety meetings, weekly safety talks and ongoing equipment training, to which attendance is mandatory. Our employees are trained in Working at Heights, WHMIS, first aid, torch safety and the proper use of propane. We also have a Joint Health and Safety Committee to assist in the expedient resolution of any safety issues. Project Managers are responsible for the safe set-up of each job and we retain a third-party professional safety consultant to conduct weekly job-site safety inspections.
Re-enforcing our commitment
But we aren’t content to rest there. To encourage continuous improvement in all our safety policies and programs, we have completed eight years as a member of a WSIB safety group and our employees participate at both regional and provincial levels of the Roofers Trade Labour-Management Health and Safety Committee, chaired by the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association of Ontario. We are registered in the COR program and expect successful completion will further assist us in our increasing efforts to provide a safe working environment for our employees.
