HEALTH & SAFETY

Health & Safety Importance

Cambria Design Build is committed to the protection from accidental loss of all its resources, including all workers and physical assets. Job practices and procedures are clearly defined in our Occupational Health and Safety Management Program for all workers to follow. We believe that knowledge and training will result in a safer work environment. Loss prevention is the direct responsibility of the team members present at a project site, especially supervisors and all workers.

Cambria Design Build has always taken health and safety very seriously and to keep improving our in-house H&S standards and to be more attractive to Construction Buyers in both the Public and Private Construction sectors, Cambria has signed up and its pursuing the Certificate of Recognition, COR™, which is nowadays the highest H&S Program in Ontario. “COR™ is a nationally trademarked and endorsed by participating members of the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA) of which the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association, IHSA, is a member”. COR™ provides employers with an effective tool to assess their health and safety management system and to actively take action to eliminate or control real or potential hazards in the workplace. “COR™ is aimed at driving positive workplace behaviour and practices that lead to improve performance”, which matches Cambria’s essence. “COR™ is currently being used across Canada” as an opportunity to improve and excel daily in H&S practices and procedures.

Health and Safety

To better achieve COR™, Cambria Design Build has added to the Management Team a CRSP H&S Professional to lead the way, and has combined this strategy with “eCompliance Health and Safety Software, the #1 software solution for protecting the workforce and our business. Our mobile‐first solution connects at‐risk employees with head office, generating safety dashboards that management can use to make faster, fact‐based decisions. With eCompliance, management and executives have a 360-degree real‐time view on safety performance so they can proactively protect employees, reduce corporate risk, and use improved safety performance as a competitive advantage”.

Cambria Design Build also employs the services of Safety First Consulting Inc., a company providing random on site health and safety inspections to current ongoing Cambria projects. These inspection reports are completed on site, reviewed with the site supervisor and then emailed to the Cambria Health and Safety Team for follow-up. Cambria takes SAFETY SERIOUSLY!”

Finally, all managers, supervisors, workers, and sub-contractors must comply with Cambria Design Build loss prevention requirements as they apply to every project. All workers must perform their jobs properly in compliance with established written procedures and operating practices as well as our clients’ policies. In fulfilling this commitment to protect both people and property, we will provide and maintain a Safe and Healthful work environment. In order to achieve this goal, Cambria Design Build will support its employees, sub-contractors and clients’ safety concerns, and whenever necessary, ensure that disciplinary action is taken in case of any breach of the Health and Safety Policy. Cambria Design Build will enforce compliance to legislative requirements and will strive to eliminate any foreseeable hazards. All supervisors, workers and subcontractors will be equally responsible for minimizing accidents within our company projects.
