Our Goal: “No One Gets Hurt, Everyone Home Safe”

The management of Westrail Construction Ltd. is committed to the health and safety of its drilling blasting employees and for all who are involved in our projects. Protection of employees from injury or occupational disease is a major continuing objective. We are committed to continuing improvement toward an accident-free drilling blasting workplace through effective administration, education and training. All supervisors and workers must be dedicated to the continuing objectives of eliminating the “near misses” which will greatly reduce the risk of injuries.

Our philosophy is that the well-being of our drilling blasting company and clients is dependent on the health and safety or our work force. The owners and management promise that every precaution reasonable in all circumstances will be taken for the protection of all workers. No drilling blasting job is to be regarded so urgent that time cannot be taken to do it in a safe manner. The welfare of the individual is our greatest concern.

Supervisors will be responsible for the health and safety of workers under their supervision. Supervisors are responsible to ensure that machinery and equipment required for use by each drilling blasting worker are safe and that each worker is in compliance with established safe work practices and procedures for each piece of equipment. Workers must receive adequate training in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety.

All supervisors, employees and subcontractors must protect their own and fellow workers’ health and safety by working in compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and all applicable regulations. They must also comply with the safe work practices and procedures established by our company. We are a member of the ISNetwork and the WSBC program to improve safety in the drilling blasting BC workplace.

We recognize that a safe work environment can be established and sustained only through a united effort by all employees and subcontractors, and that the assistance of each person is required. Your attitude and co-operation in promoting accident prevention will assist in achieving our goal: “no one gets hurt, everyone home safe,” and making our company the best place to work, one where employees share in corporate growth and success.

Everyone from the president to new drilling blasting workers has the responsibility to ensure a safe and healthy workplace. Let’s all work together to prevent incidents from creating unwanted losses and personal injuries or illnesses.
