SAFETY POLICY

 

It is DM Henderson Roofing Ltd policy and its primary goal to conduct our operation with the utmost safety, promoting a healthy work environment and attitude within the company, and to prevent injuries to our fellow workers.

 

Our objective is to encourage positive attitudes in management, supervisors and workers toward safety and to promote safe and healthy working conditions that reduce accidents and near misses, and limit adverse effects of these activities on the environment.  We will also encourage cooperation in all health and safety matters, not only between these groups, but also between each worker and his or her co-workers.  Only through such a cooperative effort can a program for all workers be established and preserved in their best interests.

 

Management and supervisory personnel shall conduct periodic reviews of the Health & Safety Program with input from employees, and ensure accurate and timely dissemination of safety policies, procedures, and safety expectations.

 

By providing the resources needed to develop and implement an effective Health & Safety Program, the company is sending the message that it is serious about expanding its existing commitment to safety to every aspect of its business.  Every DM Henderson Roofing Ltd employee has the right to a safe and healthy work environment. Every employee receives the training and equipment necessary to conduct his or her job in a way that complements our on-going commitment to safety.
