Health, Safety, Security and Environmental Policy

At ABS Group of Companiesour goal is to create a safe and an impeccable working environment for our employees, contractors, and for the communities that we operate in. We strive to identify and take all reasonable steps to minimize risks to health, safety, security and the environment.

We are committed to providing the proper training and education to facilitate our employees in working in compliance with relevant legislative requirements. We believe in Zero Injuries, Zero Occupational Illness, and Zero Environmental Impact and this is our goal.  For this to be a reality, we integrate effective communication between management and workers, which will be facilitated through our cooperation with our Joint Health and Safety Committee.

Loss prevention will be a key goal at ABS and we will work towards eliminating any accidental loss of time, property, and most importantly personal health and safety.  We can control this by having in place a strong management that is willing to hear and encourage employee participation. Also, in accordance with Federal & Provincial legislation, we will maintain practical and effective safety measures to protect the health and safety of our employees and clients.

Management and workers will be held accountable for their adherence to this Health and Safety Policy, and performance reviews and incidents will be kept on file.  It is the responsibility of management and workers to ensure that they are working safely and maintaining Safe Work Practices.  All employees are expected to and required by law to, follow legislated practices and those covered in the ABS Health and Safety Plan.

This policy will be continually reviewed by the management and safety committee and revised as required.
