At TNT Construction and Maintenance we are committed to ensuring our worksites are always a safe working environment for both our staff and subcontractors. It is our policy to ensure staff are properly trained for the job they will be doing, as well as have the resources they need to maintain a safe environment. We also have an established Joint Occupational Health and Safety committee to whom staff are able to raise any safety concerns with whether directly related to a worksite, or a change they would like to see to an overall policy.
Some courses our employees are trained in include:
• Workplace Standard First Aid
• Level C CPR/AED
• Fall Protection
• Lock Out/Tag Out
• Confined Space
• Elevated Work
• Fire Extinguisher Training
As a company, TNT Construction & Maintenance is always striving to keep up to date on safety procedures and improve or implement policies as new information comes to us either through legislation or feedback from employees. We are NB COR certified, as well as contractor check accredited and registered with the Worksafe Programs for all provinces we service.
Employees are always expected to follow safety procedures when on site, as well as ensure our subcontractors do as well. Our team is provided with hazard assessment lists they must complete each day before beginning work to ensure any working hazards are reduced and/or eliminated before beginning work for the day. This assessment ensures everyone will take a look around the site and consider anything which could be potentially dangerous prior to beginning work.
Before any job begins, all employees and subcontractors are required to attend a safety kick off meeting to establish the safety policies with all who will be working on the site. “Tool Box Talks” are encouraged with employees, and held weekly or bi-weekly depending on a project’s expected duration. These talks are used to inform, reiterate, and invite feedback from everyone on site about job procedures, safe work practices, incidents, accidents, risk alerts and any portions of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and regulations that relate to the work being done.
