Health & Safety
At E.S. Fox Limited, each individual is responsible and accountable for safety and has the duty to take immediate, appropriate, and effective action on any safety related matter. We call this our Internal Responsibility System, which is an integral component in today’s working world to help maintain an effective OH&S management system.
We strive to “Prevent the Event” both environmentally and while performing our tasks in the workplace. Our most important asset is our people from the frontline employees to our CEO and it is our safety culture that holds us all responsible. Our employees; clients; subcontractors; and the public are the first priority of consideration before we begin any project. No project or task is performed unless we have evaluated the risk involved, and have in place the required controls to ensure that all workplace parties get home safe at the end of every shift.
At E.S. Fox Limited, we are proud to have achieved certification in ISO 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System for our Head Office and Fabrication facility, and we apply these principals across our entire organization.
E.S. Fox Limited also holds COR certification in the province of Ontario, and is externally audited by the construction safety organization to ensure we are meeting the requirements of the management system.
To maintain our status as a leader in the construction industry, we must continue to network with others within our industry, and with organizations who specialize in workplace safety. E.S. Fox Limited participates in construction labour management committees and has been a member of safety groups for several years. We are also members of the various construction associations across the country.
Safety is Everyone’s Responsibility.
