Safety Policy Statement
Our company is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all of our staff. A combination of measures will be used to minimize worker exposure to COVID-19, including the most effective control technologies available. Our work procedures will protect not only our workers, but also other workers who enter our facilities. All employees must follow the procedures outlined in this plan to prevent or reduce exposure to COVID-19.
RKM Crane Services is committed to providing a strong safety program that protects its employees, its property and the public. We will not compromise the safety of our employees for any reason.
We are committed to building our Company to be the industry leader in workplace health and safety.
We will provide our employees with training, tools and equipment to enable them to perform their assignments safely. We require commitment by all employees to The Company Safety Program.
We will support our clients with the same commitment, energy and enthusiasm in their effort to protect their employees and property as we do our own.
We will be good corporate citizens when entering the community by demonstrating our support for the safety, health and welfare of all citizens.
Our goal is to have an injury and accident-free workplace and to return each employee to his/her home safely each day. No task is so important as to risk injury and/or death.
RKM Crane Services is committed to providing the safest and healthiest workplaces achievable. This commitment is not exclusive to our employees; it extends to our clients and their employees, the public, subcontractors, visitors, consultants, regulatory inspectors and all other persons who may be affected by our activities, or the hazards inherent to the project sites.
Our philosophy toward safety is reflected in the manner in which we conduct our day-to-day business. Whether it is a single lift or a long-term project, we utilize only qualified operators trained on all aspects of safety and work requirements.
From daily toolbox meetings to monthly safety meetings, we ensure that our employees are aware of the potential hazards in their work areas and provide them with appropriate safety equipment of the highest quality.
Our commitment to safety does not end there. We require that not only our sub-contractors, but also suppliers demonstrate a willingness to adhere to our safety rules and regulations.
The general safety policies, hazard/risk assessment procedures and safe work practices are contained in the RKM Crane Services Ltd. Safety Manual, which is updated throughout the year to include applicable legislative and work requirement changes.
