Given the nature of the construction work – facing a higher degree of risk than the workers in other industries -, the company ensures their own employees maintain a safe working environment and encourages others to follow suit.
Dangerous machinery, chemicals, elevated platforms, and other hazards that are typically found on construction sites can be the cause of serious and fatal injuries, if proper safety measures are not followed. The construction companies need to put a lot more focus on utilizing safe machinery and providing proper safety gear such as helmets, goggles, scaffolding, fall protection, and more. Workers should be given regular and frequent safety to avoid any unsafe work practices and mitigate risk. A senior manager at WellDone Inc. said, “Construction jobs are inherently risky, so it’s crucial to mitigate risk with a safety training program. We provide extensive training to our workers to educate them about all possible risks, as well as, conduct regular safety audits. Our safety training program helps to assess and address potential risks, and in run helps prevent accidents, ensuring a safer work environment. Also, it’s important to wear the right protective gear for the job. The sites should also keep first aid kits handy and fire extinguishers must be placed at proper locations.”
Recently, WellDone Inc was named one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies by GROWTH 2020, Canadian Business’ annual program. The company continuously invests in the enhancement and development of its health and safety program. They have maintained a comprehensive workplace safety guide that includes details of all the safety measures to be followed at all times. It includes fall protection measures, machine operation rules, electrical wiring requirements, construction site signage, and other safety protocols. “If the site has slippery surfaces, the workers wear non-skid, rubber footwear. If the job involves constant exposure to dust and other debris, workers utilize breathable masks”, added senior manager. In light of COVID-19 pandemic, the safety protocols were further revised, where workers working in close proximity to each other must wear facial coverings in order to prevent the spread of the virus.
