Commitment to Safety
Infracon is committed to safety across all measures of our business, and we have created a fully comprehensive safety program based on WorkSafeBC safety standards to meet or exceed safety requirements in all areas. Infracon performs continuous internal and external audits to ensure our safety standards are maintained consistently.
We are a COR certified company in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Yukon Territory. At Infracon, we work tirelessly to increase our certifications across other areas of Canada. Our focus is on being the most safety-oriented earthworks construction company in Canada.
Part of that focus includes training and educating our employees so that they can work in the safest, most productive manner possible. Each employee is trained in detail about safe work practices and how his or her role adds to Infracon’s safety culture. We provide them with explicit knowledge of how to handle and manage safety instances in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
Employee safety is our most important priority at Infracon. We want to make sure that every person who steps on our job sites—whether employee, contractor, or inspector—can safely go about their business with minimal risk.
To achieve this level of security, we’ve instituted several initiatives, a few of which are:
- A full-time safety staff is charged with ensuring that all safety standards are readily apparent and understood. They work closely with crew members to make sure safety measures are easily seen, continuously reinforced, and appropriately encouraged.
- To demonstrate safety as a workplace culture, Infracon’s senior management leads a Safety Day on an annual basis for all employees that focuses on our dedicated Health and Safety Program and how it relates to WorkSafeBC standards.
All front-line supervisors receive extensive training in the following areas:
- H2S Alive
- First aid
- Transportation of dangerous goods
- Ground disturbance
- Confined space
- Leadership skills
