Kingston Byers inc. is aware of the importance of accident prevention and the well-being of workers. We ensure that projects are carried out under the best possible conditions by complying with the set safety standards.
Our team closely monitors all safety-related activities to develop guidelines in order to continuously improve our prevention programs.
For each of its construction sites, Kingston Byers inc. creates a prevention program in which participation is mandatory and applies to all subcontractors and employees; all subcontractors are required to provide their respective prevention program. Our health and safety specialists work with the subcontractors and customers to maintain the physical integrity of workers and establish applicable preventive measures to eliminate any form of danger or threat to the physical health of workers at the source.
By using sound work methods, every project completed by our company flows smoothly thanks to team work and a clear communication of our objective, which is to carry out our construction projects as safely as possible.
Important rules of developing a safe project
• Reviewing project requirements;
• Requiring that all new workers be greeted;
• Identifying inherent risks in carrying out the project;
• Developing preventive measures;
• Communicating with the project team to ensure compliance with all steps;
• Meeting with the staff to review procedures, improve practices on the construction site or to discuss upcoming developments;
• Raising awareness about the costs of work-related accidents on construction sites, especially with the workforce; this approach helps reduce the number of accidents to achieve a frequency and severity rate that is lower than the industry standards;
• 0 tolerance: any breaches will result in disciplinary sanctions;
• Issuing accident and incident inquiry reports;
• Preparing various daily and monthly reports throughout the project.
In addition, certain practices unique to Kingston Byers inc. make us a responsible contractor/employer in the area of health and safety on all construction sites such as:
• Distributing individual protective equipment;
• Carefully inspecting work sites;
• Preparing inquiry and incident reports;
• Producing statistical reports on demand;
• Upgrading our staff’s skills: courses offered to workers;
• Disseminating information: documentation, posters, etc.
