Health & Safety

Uncompromised Health & Safety of our people, partners and clients working environment

Emes embraces its responsibility to operate in a manner that protects the health, safety, and well-being of our employees, contractors, visitors as well as those in the communities in which we live and operate.  We understand the importance of sustainability; we strive to make conscience business decisions that are good for our people, our communities, and the environment continuously.  Success is measured by more than just financial performance and we must focus on becoming a good corporate citizen for all of our stakeholders including the communities in which we live and work.  In our quest to achieve world-class EHS excellence, we will:

  Meet or exceed the requirements of national, provincial, and/or local EHS laws and regulations.  In locations where applicable laws and regulations do not exist or do not meet our standards, we will apply sound EHS engineering controls, work practices, management practices, and personal protective equipment to protect all stakeholders including the environment. 

  Work to eliminate injuries, continuously reduce employee blood lead levels, and protect the environment by creating minimal acceptable EHS standards and hold all of our operations accountable to these standards.

  Continue with our EHS auditing programs to assure compliance with not only regulatory requirements but also our internal standards.

  Set aggressive EHS goals to reduce injuries, employee blood lead levels, and all forms of waste.  Leaders throughout our organization will be held accountable and measured on progress towards EHS excellence.

  Strive to build positive community relations in the locations in which we live and operate.

  Monitor emerging issues concerning environment, health, and safety aspects keeping ourselves informed and up to date on regulatory changes and technological innovations.

Each one of our businesses is responsible for implementing this policy, assuring that the proper human and monetary resources are allocated to create and implement the necessary programs to build the culture that will allow us to achieve world-class EHS excellence.  

This policy will be reviewed annually and updated as needed.
