It is recognized that safety is the responsibility of all of our managers, supervisors, employees, contractors, subcontractors, visitors and suppliers. Western Mechanical accomplishes this by working in a safe manner and maintaining a working environment that encourages ongoing training, appropriate knowledge and hazard identification, making health and safety an integral part of who we are. We encourage communication at all levels, including supervisors who provide important information regarding hazards on the job, safety regulations, and company rules that must be followed.
Achieving excellence in meeting and maintaining Western Mechanical’s safety goals takes priority in all the work we do. We are committed to ensuring our safety goals, at a minimum, meet compliance requirements with all applicable laws, regulations, company safety procedures and policies, and those site-specific safety procedures and policies identified by our customers.
