Safety / Quality
COMMITTED TO SAFETY & QUALITY EXCELLENCE
When it comes to Safety, Barrier doesn’t simply meet industry or client expectations. We strive to be leaders in providing our employees and clients with confidence to get the job done safely, every time and everywhere.
This commitment to our employees and our clients is reflected in our core values and the continuous improvements to our HSE Program including the integration of new technologies in all areas of our operations; including equipment, infrastructure and employee training.
We believe it is the fundamental right and expectation of every employee (and their families) that they leave the job site safely at the end of each day. It is an active partnership between the employee and the management team to ensure that all measures taken to provide a safe work environment happen. This is a continuous improvement process and strongly supported by the management team.
Proper attitude toward accident and injury prevention on the part of both management and employees will provide the necessary link in achieving our goal of zero percent lost time incidents.
Critical identification factor for safety:
- Spot the hazard
- Assess the risks
- Find a safer way
Management always strives to eliminate any foreseeable hazards, which potentially may result in any form of accident, injury or illness. In fulfilling this commitment to protect both people, property and the environment, management will maintain a safe and healthy work environment in accordance with industry standards and in compliance with legislative requirements.
Our staff receives the highest level of training and updates on the latest technologies and understanding the importance of safety issues including environmental concerns. Due diligence provides our staff and visitors with a safe working environment and Barrier Group is a proud member of the ISNetworld and Comply Works.
