Health & Safety

Mountain Side Earthworks - Mountain Movers The safety and health of each employee and sub-contractor of Mountain Side Earthworks Ltd. is our primary concern at all times. When necessary, the prevention of occupational induced injuries and illnesses takes priority over operational productivity. Management is committed to providing all mechanical and physical facilities required for our company's personal safety and health program to meet or exceed industry standards.

Such a program starts with proper attitudes toward injury and illness prevention on the part of both the supervisors and employees. Cooperation between all concerned parties is imperative for success.

Our Health & Safety program involves the Supervisors/Management who commit to:
  • Provide mechanical and physical safeguards to the maximum extent possible;
  • Conduct a program of safety and health inspections to eliminate unsafe working conditions and practices, to control health hazards, and to comply fully with the safety and health standards for every job;
  • Train all employees in good safety and health practices;
  • Provide necessary personal protective equipment along with instruction for its use and care;
  • Develop and enforce safety and health rules by requiring that employees cooperate with these rules as a condition of employment;
  • Investigate every incident promptly and thoroughly to uncover the cause as well as take preventative measures to ensure there are no reoccurrences.
We recognize that the responsibilities for safety and health are shared:
  • The employer accepts the responsibility for leadership of the safety and health program, for its effectiveness and improvement, and for providing the safeguards required to ensure safe conditions;
  • Supervisors are responsible for developing the proper attitudes towards safety and health in themselves and in those they supervise, ensuring that all operations are performed with the utmost regard for safety;
  • Employees are responsible for whole hearted, genuine cooperation with all aspects of the safety and health program, including compliance with all rules and regulations, and for continually practicing safety while performing their duties.
The safety information in this policy does not take precedence over Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. All employees will be familiar with the O.H.& S Act & Regulations and Provincial WCB Regulations. The goal of Mountain Side Earthworks Ltd. is to continually upgrade our Safety & Health Program to ensure that the highest levels of safety are achieved.
