Our commitment to safety

  • Projects are pre-planned from a safety standpoint before they start, with all stakeholders required to provide detailed plans for eliminating, controlling or minimizing the potential hazards or exposures that can be foreseen.
  • TW has a safety committee established as a management tool to recommend improvements to our workplace safety program and to identify corrective measures needed to eliminate or control recognized safety and health hazards.
  • All employees receive thorough training on all of the equipment, methods and vehicles they use.

TW communicates with employees concerning safety through:

  • Jobsite safety meetings
  • Safety team meetings
  • Safety posters and handouts
  • Individual contact
  • Third-party training sessions
  • Internal job-site inspections and shared reports
  • Employee recognition program for safe work behavior

At Therrien Waddell, safety is everyone's business!
