Always Working Safely

Athabasca Workforce Solutions Inc (AWS) is committed to an effective Health, Safety, and Environment  Management System that focuses on continual improvement and ensures the provision of a safe, healthy, and  injury free work environment and culture for our employees. 

In fulfilling this commitment to protect both people and property, management will provide and maintain a  healthy and safe work environment in accordance with industry standards and in compliance with legislative  requirements. The company will strive to eliminate any foreseeable health and/or safety hazards that may result  in property damage, incidents (lost-time or otherwise), or personal injury/illness. 

All employees (Management, Team Leads, Workers, etc.) are equally responsible for minimizing incidents  within our facilities. Active participation by everyone, every day, in every job is necessary for the health and  safety excellence that this company expects. Health and safety excellence includes the promotion and  maintenance of the highest degree of physical, psychological, and social well-being of all employees. Safe  work practices and procedures are clearly defined in the company’s Health, Safety & Environment  Management Manual for all employees to review, understand and adhere to. 

All management activities will comply with the company’s health and safety requirements as they relate to the  planning, operation, and maintenance of all facilities and equipment. All employees will perform their jobs  properly and in accordance with established procedures and safe work practices. 

All employees at AWS have the following three basic rights for the purpose of ensuring their own safety and  that of the others around them: 

Right to refuse unsafe work; 

Right to participate in the workplace health and safety activities through the Health and Safety  Committee (HSC) or as a worker health and safety representative; and 

Right to know, or the right to be informed about, actual and potential dangers within the  workplace. 

In addition, management, team leads, workers and other workers, including contractors, suppliers, or other  service providers, will comply with all applicable legislation (OHS Act, Regulations, and Code) and any  further site-specific policies, procedures, and Codes of Practice.
