Donalco Western Inc. Safety Policy

The personal Health and Safety of each Donalco Western employee is of the utmost importance and is given priority over operating productivity. Our objective is a Health and Safety program that reduces illness and injuries with our ultimate goal being to maintain a Zero Tolerance Program.

Our Health and Safety Program involves:

  • Providing mechanical and physical safeguards
  • Training all employees in good health and safety practices
  • Ensuring all employees know of and follow safety procedures
  • Providing required personal protective equipment and instructions for use and care
  • Developing and enforcing health and safety rules and requiring that employees cooperate with the rules as a condition of employment.
  • Investigating accidents, incidents and near misses to identify causes and put corrective measures in place.

We recognize that the responsibilities for safety and health are shared:

  • The employer accepts the responsibility for leadership for the safety and health program, for its effectiveness and improvement.
  • Supervisors are responsible for developing the proper attitudes towards health and safety in themselves and those they supervise. Supervisors are also responsible for ensuring that all operations are performed with the utmost regard for the safety and health of those involved.
  • Employees and sub-contractors are responsible for wholehearted, genuine cooperation with all aspects of the health and safety program, including compliance with all the rules and regulations and for continually practicing safety while performing their duties.

Donalco Western has a Safety Program that meets or exceeds the requirements of Alberta OH&S (Alberta Labour) and WCB. We are registered members of WCB's 'Partners in Injury Reduction' program (PIR) and have held a 'Certificate of Recognition' (COR) since 1993. Donalco Western employs a full time Safety Officer and retains a professional Safety Consultant (Aztek: Cindy Dozorec). Together they are responsible for maintaining our Safety Program on a daily basis and ensuring our employees have all the necessary training certificates required to operate in the field.
