The safety of you and your family as well as our trades and staff is very important to us. The ultimate goal is to have everyone go home at the end of the day safe and well. That is why we have implemented many safety policies and procedures that ensure the jobsite is a safe work environment for our trades and a safe place for you to visit your new home while it’s under construction.
Customer and Trade Jobsite Safety Videos
We have produced customer and trade jobsite safety videos that can be viewed on shane tv at www.shanetv.ca. These videos outline the potential hazards that can occur during the construction process of your new home. By watching the videos you can help contribute toward the safety of you and your family while educating yourself on jobsite safety.
Safety Care Kit
As a Shane Homes customer you will also receive a safety care kit for your new home. This kit contains a fire extinguisher and first aid kit providing the many items necessary in case of an accident or emergency.
Full Time Safety Supervisor
We have a full-time safety supervisor on staff to help ensure your safety and the safety of the trades-people working on your new home. We also have our C.O.R. (Certificate of Recognition) in safety which is issued to employers who develop and implement health and safety programs that meet established standards.
Construction Safety Training Program
Our field staff have first aid training, carry first aid kits in their vehicles and have completed the Construction Safety Training System Program. Our trades are also supplied with a jobsite safety video, created by Shane Homes, outlining safe work practices. We have set the above procedures in place to help ensure the safety of our customers, trades and everyone around them.
Personal Protective Equipment
Each of our showhomes is stocked with personal protective equipment, including safety goggles and hard hats. As an added safety precaution our customers are required to sign into the showhome to receive and use this equipment before visiting their home under construction.
