Health & Safety Policy
GS Construction is committed to safety on and off the worksite. This includes protecting people, equipment, materials and the environment from loss caused by injuries or accidents.
GS Construction complies with all applicable municipal, provincial and federal legislation to the best of its ability. We have developed a comprehensive health and safety manual that outlines company policies, job procedures, safe work practices and programs to ensure adequate hazard identification and control.
We also ensure that workers adhere to their training. Employees at every level — including management — are responsible and accountable for the company’s overall safety.
Our company expects safety excellence, and that means complete and active participation by everyone… everyday… in every job. Management is dedicated to the maintenance of a safe and healthy work environment; we will co-operate and support the efforts of employees to achieve this goal. All employees are expected to comply with company policies and conduct themselves in a professional manner on the job.
We all want an accident- and injury-free workplace. We can get there through a continuous focus on safety and loss control.
Our Covid-19 Commitment
As the world grapple with the impact of the global Covid-19 pandemic, GS Construction has continued to demonstrate unwavering commitment to ensuring the health and safety of our workers, clients, suppliers and business partners are top priority. In line with the Country, Province and Local regulations, we have put in place a robust COVID-19 Prevention and Response Plan at our office and sites to help us deal with this global pandemic. All measures must be taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
