For the wellbeing of everyone we work with and every place we operate.
Health, safety, the environment and quality are not optional. They are essential. KAEFER would not be in business if we didn't take the aforementioned essentials as seriously as the tasks we perform every day. We see the upholding and continuous improvement of health, safety, environmental and quality standards as a fundamental part of our daily work across every facet of our organisation.
Health and Safety at KAEFER Canada
KAEFER in Canada is committed to providing a strong safety program that protects everyone we work with - from our employees, clients, and the workers on the projct sites to the general public. An injury and incident free environment is the goal of this organization. We take the investigation and analysis of work-related incidents very seriously and make it an an essential part of managing health and safety.
Safety standards set the parameters within which we operate and the bar for which we measure our performance. We endeavor to provide a safe work environment, training, and the necessary personal protection as required by our safety program, the individual requirements of our clients, and the requirements of Provincial and Federal authorities.
Our employees are our greatest assets and we do everything we possibly can to ensure their wellbeing, health and safety. That includes providing a psychologically safe workplace. At KAEFER Canada, we strive to implement a Comprehensive Workplace Health and Safety (CWHS) Program and recognize mental health and wellness as essential for our employees' wellbeing.
It may sound obvious, but health and safety is a prerequisite in our business. For us and for our clients. That's why we actively involve them in all aspects of our safety culture and welcome exchange of ideas and concepts to ensure we reach the target of zero accidents and incidents.
What exactly is a "safety culture"? At KAEFER, we're guided by the principle of continuous improvement. And we apply that to fostering an inclusive safety culture. This means constantly looking for ways to minimise risks and optimise processes. It means involving every single person in our organization in making safety a priority - from the top down and bottom up.
KAEFER cares about the environment. But caring is one thing. Taking action to protect the environment is another. Our entire team is encouraged to behave in environmentally friendly way every day. We operate in compliance with all relevant federal, provincial, and municipal environmental legislation; and, will strive to use pollution prevention and environmental best practices in all we do.
As a company whose vision is "to eliminate the energy waste", we are strongly committed to conserving, protecting and making positive changes to our environment.
Quality goes deep at KAEFER – it permeates our culture and allows us to provide consistent client satisfaction. Our project managers are trained in accordance with industry standards. And this goes to show that we don't just promote quality, but perform on a daily basis. Our company-wide culture of constant improvement means that we will continue to set and exceed higher standards for ourselves in the future.
