Health + Safety
Safety is everyone’s responsibility
At West Shore we believe that Safety is everyone’s responsibility and that it is the most important aspect of any job. We have a very tight-knit culture and want everyone to go home safe every single day.
We make every employee part of the safety process. From the top to the bottom no problem is too small or too large to address. Employees are encouraged to bring forward any concerns or potential improvements. We hold monthly Joint Health and Safety Committee meetings to review safety action items and constantly strive to continuously improve. Good enough is not in our vocabulary.
Keeping Our Team Safe
West Shore is COR certified with WorksafeBC meaning our safety program meets the highest industry standards and goes above and beyond regulation. We perform annual third-party audits of our entire OHS program to ensure we are constantly improving. In addition to COR, we are pre-qualified with third party safety management firms such as ISNET and Avetta.
Investing In our employees
We believe a well-trained employee is a safe employee. All new employees receive a rigorous safety orientation and mentorship program. New employees are also all provided with our standard suite of third party training which includes fall protection, aerial lifts, rough terrain forklifts, confined space entry, and first aid. We also cover the cost of all specialized training for employees moving forward.
