HEALTH AND SAFETY
What do we have without the health and safety of our staff?
At Hemmera, our people are our most precious resource. Hemmera’s health and safety program objective is an incident-free workplace – active participation – by everyone, every day, in every job – is necessary for the safety excellence we expect from our people. Through effective training, careful planning, strong management, and regular inspections, we are able to maintain the highest standards of health and safely excellence. We take an integrated approach to health and safety at Hemmera, and emphasize individual accountability. We actively implement practical and proven measures to protect all involved – employees, clients, subcontractors, and the public at large.
Hemmera’s comprehensive health and safety program meets or exceeds Canadian Occupational Health and Safety legislation and Workman’s Compensation Board/Workplace Safety and Insurance Board requirements. Our 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, we received certificates of excellence for leadership in safe performance and contractor safety performance from Chevron.
