Our company adheres to the internal responsibility system as our underlying philosophy in managing occupational health and safety. Duron believes that everyone in the workplace – from senior management to front line workers - is responsible for his or her own safety and for the safety of those around them. This collective approach allows us to effectively anticipate, identify, assess and manage risks to health posed by hazardous materials and physical agents. Duron follows the legislative requirements of Ontario’s Occupational Health and Safety Act as a minimum standard on all our projects. To maintain a safe and healthy work environment, Duron:
Promotes health and safety awareness, training and education
Accepts the principle that the causes of accidents can be controlled and risks can be mitigated
Strives to use a proactive approach in accident prevention
Works closely with health and safety personnel to identify risks and design control strategies
Monitors site conditions and worker behaviour to implement corrective measures where required
Provides support to the Joint Health and Safety Committee
Duron supervisors, foremen and site safety representatives are trained in hazard recognition and awareness to ensure safety of those involved through compliance with all applicable legislations. In an effort to achieve a management system that is consistently above industry standards, Duron is currently going through the process of achieving the Certificate of Recognition.
