Health and Safety
Health and safety is the most important aspect of all activities carried out by Hemmera teams. Our integrated approach emphasizes individual accountability; we ensure that practical measures are in place to protect fellow employees, clients, subcontractors, and the public at large.
Our field and office projects are able to maintain the highest standards of health and safety excellence through effective training, careful planning, strong management, and regular inspections.
Hemmera’s health and safety program goal is an incident-free workplace. As such, 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.
Hemmera’s comprehensive health and safety management meets or exceeds Canadian Occupational Health and Safety legislation and WCB/WSIB requirements. BC, Alberta, and Yukon operations have obtained certificates of recognition, and Hemmera is in the process of pursuing similar incentive-based programs for our Ontario operations. Hemmera is a contractor member of ISNetworld, ComplyWorks, and PICS. In 2006 and 2008, the firm received certificates of excellence for leadership in safe performance and contractor safety performance from Chevron.
