Health, Safety & Environment

At Tom Jones Corporation, we recognize the importance of workplace Health & Safety and have developed a leading-edge, best practice-based Health & Safety Program to keep our work sites safe.  Our goal is to lead by example in an inherently hazardous and risk filled industry.

Every member of the Tom Jones Corporation workforce knows our Health & Safety policies and procedures. Health & Safety programs are built with a pragmatic, people-focused approach and are about keeping employees, subcontractors and site visitors safe. Our people understand that safety is their primary responsibility and are required to  report any concerns immediately

Key elements of our Health & Safety program  include:

  • Ensuring Tom Jones Corporation people are informed, accountable and committed to Health & Safety;
  • Encouraging quick reporting and prompt action when Health & Safety concerns arise;
  • Actively participating in safe work practices training;
  • Complying with all relevant legislation, regulations and codes of practice for the industry;
  • Auditing, assessing and reporting regularly on Health & Safety standards;
  • Consistently working to eliminate work-related injuries by proactively managing hazards.
  • Work closely with the Ministry of Labour, W.S.I.B. and Infrastructure Health and Safety Association to implement safe workplace recommendations.
  • Providing or arranging accommodations for Ontarians including people with disabilities in accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).  Please contact us should you require an alternate format of this Program and Policy.
