Safety

Our Health and Safety Policy ensures inspections will identify all safety needs by implementing daily and weekly toolbox meetings, inspections and risk assessments. By promoting these facets, we pursue Safety First on a daily basis and integrate it into every aspect of our work ensuring and continually improving worker and customer safety.

Safety and a healthy environment is regarded as of utmost importance for our employees, contractors, subcontractors, clients and their workforce personnel.

Our most valuable resources are the people who work for us.

Our management fulfills their responsibilities by providing resources for safe equipment, tools, and required training for all employees. We also ensure that their health and safety management system is maintained and revisions updated as legislated by the Occupational Health and SafetyAct, Regulation and Code.

At our Daily Toolbox Meeting, Weekly Safety Meeting, Inspections and Risk Assessments, Our Supervisors will ensure all hazards are removed if reasonably practicable and communicated to all employees, contractors and subcontractors. All hazards will be identified and have corrective action plans processed immediately.

The supervisors will also investigate all incident/accidents and near misses, provide required on-the-job training to new employees to ensure they are competent. And ensure appropriate personal protective equipment is supplied and used by employees and that the equipment is maintained to meet legislated safety standards.

Right Choice employees, contractors and visitors on Right Choice Camp and Catering worksites are responsible for obeying ALL safety rules, following recommended safe work procedures, wearing personal protective gear when required, reporting all incidents/accidents/near misses/hazards to supervisor, and participate in all safety training programs and informing their supervisor of any unsafe work conditions.
