Jane Alliance Neighbourhood Services
Occupational Health and Safety Policy
This policy was approved by Jane Alliance Neighbourhood Services governing Board of Directors and signed by the Executive Director January 28, 2015.
The Management of Jane Alliance Neighbourhood Services is committed to the health and safety of its employees and for all who are involved in our projects. Protection of employees from injury or occupational disease is a major continuing objective. We are committed to continuing improvement toward an accident-free workplace through effective administration, education and training. All supervisors and workers must be dedicated to the continuing objectives of eliminating the “near misses” which will greatly reduce the risk of injuries.
Our philosophy is that the well-being of our organization and its clients is dependent on the health and safety or our workforce in its entirety. The Directors and Officers of this organisation promise that every precaution reasonable in all circumstances will be taken for the protection of all workers. No job is to be regarded so urgent that time cannot be taken to do it in a safe manner. The welfare of the individual is our greatest concern. Management would like to suggest that all workers think first, use common sense, and don’t take chances.
Supervisors will be responsible for the health and safety of workers under their supervision. Supervisors are responsible to ensure that machinery and equipment required for use by each worker are safe and that each worker works in compliance with established, safe work practices and procedures for each piece of equipment. Workers must receive adequate training in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety.
All supervisors, employees and subcontractors must protect their own and fellow workers’ health and safety by working in compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and all applicable regulations and safe work practices and procedures established by our Jane Alliance Neighbourhood Services.
We recognize that a safe work environment can be established and sustained only through a united effort by all employees and subcontractors and that the assistance of each person is required. Your attitude and cooperation in promoting accident prevention will ensure no one gets hurt and makes our organization the best place to work; one where employees share in corporate growth and success.
Everyone from the Executive Director to volunteers has the responsibility to ensure a safe and healthy workplace. Let’s all work together to prevent incidents from creating unwanted losses and personal injuries or illnesses.
Disregard or willful violations of this Policy by employees at any level may be considered cause for disciplinary action in accordance with the company’s policies.
