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.
We recognize that responsibilities for safety are shared:
RKM Crane Services Ltd., as the employer, accepts the responsibility for the leadership of the safety program, its effectiveness, and its maintenance and for providing the safeguards required to ensure a safe working environment.
Our Managers are responsible for the establishment, implementation, monitoring, control and update of safety systems and procedures. They also ensure our employees receive continuous safety education programs and training.
Our Supervisors are viewed as role models and are responsible for the development of positive attitudes toward safety in themselves, and in those they supervise. They are to ensure that all work activities are performed with the utmost regard for the health and safety of the personnel involved.
Our Employees are responsible for the genuine cooperation with all aspects of our safety program, rules and regulations and for continually practicing safety in all aspects of their work. Compliance is the expected norm.
