Safety

Preference First Aid puts a priority on safety and has implemented a comprehensive Occupational Health & Safety Program.  Our Health, Safety and Environment Manual and The Occupational Health & Safety Regulations for BC and AB are readily accessible to employees, both in their company trucks and in the office.

Preference First Aid employees are encouraged to become active members of the safety team at their worksite through involvement with weekly and tailgate safety meetings and site hazard assessments and worksite inspections.

Safety manuals are reviewed on a regular basis and updated as required.  Our Safety manual is available for Client review, please contact us.

We Have a COR for both Alberta and BC. Safety audits are completed annually. We are clients of ISNetworld and Complyworks.  Our company safety statistics are available for Client review for those who do not subscribe to the above noted.

Safety Policy

Preference First Aid is committed to a strong safety program to protect its workers, its property, its clients, their workers and the public from accidents.

Management, supervisors and all employees, including any sub-contractors, are responsible and accountable for the company’s overall safety initiatives.  Preference encourages and values client and employee input in all aspects of our safety program.  Complete and active participation by all Preference personnel, in every activity, is necessary for the desired safety standards we expect.

Management expects participation in the safety program by all employees and will provide proper equipment, training and procedures to carry out the daily activities.  Employees are responsible to be familiar with and follow all procedures, safe work practices and strive to improve safety at the worksite.

All employees are expected to know and comply with applicable regulations and acceptable industrial codes of practice.  All employees should be familiar with the Work Safe OH&S Acts and Regulations they have been provided with.  Preference provides its workers with access NCSOs at all times should they have any concerns or questions that need clarification in regards to health and Safety issues.

An injury and accident free workplace is our goal.  Through continuous safety and loss control efforts, it can be achieved.
