Health and Safety
At Hemmera, we consider health and safety to be the most important aspect of all activities carried out under the Hemmera name—for our staff, and for those who interact with them as part of their regular duties. All Hemmera staff must ensure that practical and effective measures are in place to protect the health and safety of our fellow employees, clients, subcontractors and the public at large, in the field and the office. Further, all necessary measures must be in place to protect our clients' properties, and public and private properties close to our work sites.
Hemmera's employees, at every level, are responsible and accountable for the company's health and safety performance. Active participation by everyone, every day, in every job, is necessary for the safety excellence this company expects.
Management sets an example and provide leadership in the health and safety program. In consultation with the employees, management has established a health and safety policy and work procedures, and management also provides proper equipment and training. Management and employees are responsible for following all company policies and procedures, working with an awareness of health and safety, and continually improving our health and safety program.
Hemmera requires that all personnel, contract employees, subcontractors and key suppliers plan for, and design, safety into each of its field projects. Health and safety performance is a critical consideration in Hemmera employee reviews and contractor selection processes. Hemmera personnel, contract employees, and employees of subcontractors, are aware of and comply with relevant Occupational Illness, Fire, Security and Health and Safety legislation, and with established rules and procedures and work with equal concern for the safety of co-workers.
Hemmera field and office projects maintain the highest standards of health and safety excellence through effective training, careful planning and strong management.
