HEALTH & SAFETY
Colony recognizes that our most important company responsibility is the safety of our crews, other job-site crews, and the overall site itself. We are committed to providing the highest standards to create a safe and healthy working environment and this is reflected in our impeccable safety record.
We at Colony are committed to a strong Health and Safety Program that protects all our stakeholders: our employees, contractors, customers, clients, the public, and property. One of our most important core values is “GO HOME HEALTHY - No matter what the cost”. We will ensure that everyone we work with will go home healthy to their families every day.
Our goal when it comes to safety is ZERO accidents.
We believe that all accidents are preventable and active participation at all levels will ensure that this goal can be achieved. To ensure this, we provide proper and relevant employee training, job-specific safe work practices, project and personal protection equipment, operation and maintenance procedures, and safety guidelines that focus management, employee, and contractor awareness on reducing the risk of accidents and incidents. We are also committed to safe and sustainable practices in all aspects of our operations and are responsible to ensure compliance with local government, occupational health, safety, and environmental regulation
In order to hold ourselves to a higher standard for health and safety, we maintain a Certificate of Recognition (COR) through the BC Construction Safety Alliance. Each year we undergo an in-depth audit of our health and safety programs to evaluate our performance and our alignment with legislated requirements and industry best-practices. After each annual audit, we take action to continuously improve our programs and ensure our commitment to safe and healthy workplaces evolves and improves year after year.
“Proactive planning is evident. Safety performance is solid in terms of leading and lagging indicators. Something for the rest of the mine to follow. This can become a role model project for Gahcho Kue Mine.”
