Health and Safety Policy

Ernco is committed to ensuring that practical and effective measures are in place to protect the health and safety of our employees, clients, subcontractors, suppliers, the environment, and the public in all areas of our operations. This commitment is reinforced through action and passion within a rewarding corporate culture in which all Ernco employees participate and share ownership in health and safety management. A companywide commitment to health and safety performance allows us to grow the value of our business responsibly.


Management continually endeavors to provide and maintain a safe work environment requiring that its personnel, clients, subcontractors, and suppliers plan and design safety into each of their operations.


Management and employees must be aware of, and comply with, all relevant Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S), Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) and Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) regulations, using established worksite rules and procedures that demonstrate concern for all workers.


All employees, including management and supervisors, are responsible and accountable for the company’s overall safety initiatives, following all procedures, working safely, and providing information towards improving all safety measures. Complete and active participation by everyone, every day, in every job is necessary to achieve the safety excellence that Ernco expects.


An injury and incident free workplace is our goal. Through continuous safety and loss control efforts, we can accomplish this together.
