Wilmax Construction Ltd. has been COR certified since 1998 and we are also a member of the Partners in Reduction (PIR) Program. The management of Wilmax Construction Ltd. is committed to a strong safety program that protects its staff, property and the public from accidents. All employees participate in the safety program and each employee has a company safety manual. Employees are encouraged to take safety courses and all have taken WHMIS and First Aid Safety courses.

We recognize that the responsibilities for safety and health are shared:

  1. The employer accepts the responsibility for the leadership of the safety and health program, for its effectiveness and improvement, and for providing the safeguards required to ensure safe conditions.
  2. Supervisors are responsible for developing the proper attitudes towards safety and health in themselves and those that they supervise, and for ensuring that all operations are performed with the utmost regard for the safety and health of all personnel involved.
  3. Employees are responsible for whole hearted, genuine cooperation with all aspects of the safety and health program, including compliance with all rules and regulations, and for continually practicing safety while performing their duties.

  • Utilizing hazard assessment checklists.
  • Providing employees with safe work practices and procedures.
  • Ensuring company rules are followed.
  • Ensuring that personal protective equipment is worn.
