Health, Safety and the Environment

At Canadian Dewatering, we value our employees, clients and the environment. We strive for zero incidents, accidents, and property loss. If we do experience a loss, we do not consider it to be an acceptable consequence of conducting our business, and we will strive to learn from any potential losses to reduce any further risk to an acceptable level.  Health, Safety and the Environment will not be sacrificed just to “get the job done.”

Canadian Dewatering is committed to work in a spirit of consultation and cooperation with all Canadian Dewatering employees, for the purpose of continual improvement on our overall safety initiatives, and providing a safe work environment that all employees expect and have a right to work in.

Canadian Dewatering recognizes that all employees within our organization have a right to work in a healthy and safe working environment. Canadian Dewatering understands that through active participation in developing and enforcing our Health & Safety programs & policies, this commitment will support that belief of our employees’ basic right.

Our target of zero incidents, injuries, and property loss requires that all employees in the company take responsibility for their own safety as well as the safety of others.  Canadian Dewatering continually invests in our employees to ensure that they have the best resources to do this, and in turn we expect all employees to: intervene and refuse unsafe work; participate actively in safety meetings and inspections; and report incidents, injuries, and environmental and property losses when they occur. Employees are required to openly communicate hazards, and participate actively in our preventative maintenance program. 

Canadian Dewatering expects at a minimum that Senior Management, Branch Managers, Department Managers, and field supervision will lead with integrity and by example, in identifying and controlling hazards, and by complying with all company and legislative regulations.  Additionally, we require all Canadian Dewatering contractors to adhere to a health and safety program that meets or exceeds the Canadian Dewatering, Health, Safety, and Environmental program.

Canadian Dewatering Leadership is committed to ensuring that all our employees are given the tools and resources required to perform the tasks expected of them. Canadian Dewatering Leadership will actively participate in identifying and controlling hazards and leading by example in adherence to company and legislative regulations.

As we work together on our journey to zero incidents, injuries, and property loss, we will be able to maintain and improve upon our standard of best in class service, and by doing so ensure a quality workplace for all of our employees, visitors, and clients, as well as protecting the natural environment for generations to come.
