RGO is committed to maintaining an effective health and safety management system that protects our employees, other parties where our operations are carried out and the general public from harm, and promotes the physical, psychological and social well-being of our staff.
It is RGO’s expectation that the organization and all individuals associated with the organization’s operations, including, but not limited to, managers, supervisors, workers and subcontractors will conduct themselves in a S.A.F.E. manner at all times. RGO team members will:
STRIVE – to improve safety performance
RGO’s goal is not merely in keeping with but surpassing the best practices of similar companies in our industry. To do so, all incidents, and hazardous acts and conditions must be reported so they can be investigated. RGO will develop corrective actions to continually improve organizational procedures and processes and take steps to prevent incident recurrence.
ANSWER – for actions taken and not taken
Ultimately, employees at every level of the organization, and RGO subcontractors, are responsible and accountable for RGO’s health and safety performance. Employees and subcontractors will answer for the decisions they make, whether good or bad. Positive safety observations will be rewarded, while poor safety performance will be corrected through RGO’s progressive discipline process.
FOLLOW – health and safety rules
Team members at every level of the organization are responsible for understanding the legislative, organizational and client health and safety rules that apply to the work they are completing, and for obeying those rules at all times.
ELIMINATE – or control hazards before starting work.
It is RGO’s goal to prevent the loss of any stakeholder resource, whether it be people, equipment, material or environmental. The hazard assessment process plays a crucial role in achieving this goal. Before starting work, hazards are to be identified and assessed through RGO’s hazard assessment and control program. Where a hazard cannot be eliminated, a control must be developed and utilized. If a hazard is not controlled, work is not to start.
Please, join our management team, our safety committee and our employees in providing a safe and healthy work environment for all of those involved with our business operations.
On behalf of the RGO Leadership Team,
Cathy Orr, President & CEO
