Standing by the Redpath Philosophies and Guidelines, employees are able to keep SAFETY FIRST, LAST, AND ALWAYS top of mind; a statement which stands as true today as it did when the company began, over fifty years ago. The Redpath Safety Program has several well-developed elements, and incorporates the following concepts:
At Redpath, we passionately believe that all work undertaken can and will be done safely with no harm done to our employees or those of our clients, or sub-contractors.
Everyone in our organization has a responsibility to contribute to their own health and safety and the health and safety of fellow workers, on and off the job. We expect all employees to present themselves fit for work with the right attitude towards health and safety.
We believe that safety expertise exists at all levels in our organization and we are committed to continuously improving safety and health through employee involvement and safety innovation.
All employees will receive an appropriate safety induction prior to undertaking work. We will provide effective instruction and training and ensure the required tools, equipment, and procedures are in place.
We will maintain a proactive approach to health and safety through the rigorous application of the Redpath Safety Management System. As a part of this system, all management will demonstrate their commitment to safety through the development of Personal Safety Plans.
We will meet or exceed all applicable laws, regulations and Client requirements.
All injuries and incidents will be investigated by the appropriate personnel, with high potential incidents including a senior management review, so as to ensure that all causes are identified and controls are put in place to prevent recurrences. The lessons learned will be shared throughout the company.
Our motto of ‘“SAFETY – FIRST, LAST, AND ALWAYS’ has served us well since 1962 and continues to be the foundation on which our safety culture, our continued business success, and the pride of our employees, is built.
