Health and Safety Policy Statement
All Owners, Management, and Department Heads of Fred Kau Plumbing & Heating Ltd. (FKPH) are committed to providing a healthy and safe work environment for all workers. It is our belief that every one of us must share in H & S responsibilities and share in the commitment to making this happen. Our ongoing commitment is to protect workers from workplace incident, injury and occupational illness and disease and to be good stewards of the planet by re-using, reducing and recycling when possible.
REMEMBER: NO job is considered to be SO urgent that safety can be jeopardized. Health and Safety awareness and responsibility must be integrated into all workplace activities.
Owners, Management, and Department Heads will make every known effort to provide a healthy and safe work environment. All workplace parties must be dedicated and committed to the objective of reducing the risk of injury and illness in the workplace.
As an employer, FKPH is ultimately responsible for worker health and safety. We are committed to taking every reasonable precaution to protect workers from harm. We expect that all workplace parties will work together to exceed the minimums as prescribed by legislation and share in the responsibility to working safe by adopting safe work practices.
To further support this commitment, all employees of FKPH share a joint responsibility to implement and maintain an Internal Responsibility System directed at reducing and preventing incidents, injuries and accidents resulting in occupational injuries, diseases and illnesses.
All Department Heads, Supervisors, Managers, and Foremen must use safe work practices and are responsible and accountable for the safety of workers under their supervision. This includes the responsibility to ensure that machinery and equipment are safe and that workers follow established safe work practices and procedures. Workers must receive adequate training in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety.
Every worker and employee must protect their own health and safety by, and sharing in the commitment to achieving compliance with, the following: Occupational Health & Safety Act, Regulations for Construction Projects, Regulations for Industrial Establishments, Regulation 1101, Workplace Safety Insurance Act, ESA, FIPPA, PHIPA in addition to workplace specific legislation that governs safe work practices and procedures in addition to FKPH’s Policies and Procedures. All hazards must be immediately reported to Supervisors, Management, Department Heads, and Owners so they can be corrected. All workplace parties must be united in establishing and sustaining a safe work environment in every workplace activity. Continual commitment to health and safety is an essential part of this organization, at all levels.
We are committed to the continual improvement and growth of our HSMS. This is reflected by participation in the WSIB Safety Group Program; through effective administration and ongoing training of our HSMS. We encourage and welcome your participation in these continual commitments!
