Acero Engineering Inc. is committed to the safety of its employees, contractors, clients, visitors, property and the environment. Everyone employed by Acero is responsible for maintaining the safety program. Managers and Supervisors must be willing to set an example for the corporate Acero Team. They are responsible for identifying safety needs, communicating safety hazards, investigating hazardous conditions and accidents, providing training, supplying appropriate safety and personal protective equipment, and ensuring that all equipment is properly maintained and meets legislated safety standards. Their role is supported by input from all employees.
The goal of Acero’s safety program is to have an accident free workplace. Employees must be aware of their responsibility to work safely and their right to share in providing a safe work environment. All company employees and others on company worksites are responsible for obeying all safety rules, following recommended safe work procedures, wearing and using personal protective equipment when required, participating in safety training programs and informing supervisors of any unsafe work conditions.
Acero’s commitment to Health and Safety has been recognized by the Alberta Government through the Certificate of Recognition (COR) program. COR is an occupational health and safety accreditation program that verifies a fully implemented safety & health program which meets national standards. Acero reviews and updates its Health and Safety program regularly and performs annual audits to keep up-to-date with industry standards. Acero renewed its COR certification in 2014 and scored 98% which is a great success while still leaving room for future improvements. Additionally, Acero is an ISNetworld and ComplyWorks Member which helps to demonstrate the excellent track record Acero has as a safe and reliable company.
