Health and Safety

Safety Is Our Culture

Throughout the execution of our projects from day one to the end, safety is our cultural value. Locke’s understands the requirements for safety including site training, orientation, meeting, and weekly safety observations.  We have a dedicated Corporate Health and Safety Manager committed to maintaining the highest industry standards. Our Health and Safety Program stresses both the individual and collective commitment required to stay safe and healthy in the work place.

We have developed a Safety Policy and Program in the best interest of all personnel, subcontractors, visitors and customers and the communities we work in. We believe that injury prevention and cooperation go hand in hand and accordingly insist that ALL those involved meet or exceed legislative requirements. Management believes that the personal health and safety of each employee is of primary importance, and is committed to providing a safe working environment for all its employees.

Our Safety Policy contributes to a safe working environment and is an integral part of the management and operation of the company. Safety is a TEAM EFFORT, which will benefit the government, business and general public it is obligated to protect. Management’s philosophy is based on providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for its employees through use of a comprehensive health and safety program.

We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of safety. In order to ensure that commitment is met the company Health & Safety Program is dynamic and ever changing, not static. Health & Safety Advisors work diligently to revisit current & develop new Job Safety Analysis and Standard Work Plans to ensure safety in every task which includes valued input from site employees and sub-contractors.
