Heritage understands the importance of safety to the well-being and productivity of its employees, and strives to safeguard the workplace from injury and malfeasance through prevention and continuous improvement of our processes.
As a COR certified company, we are held to the highest standards of safety in our industry. As well Heritage will act in compliance with all Local, Federal and Provincial workplace health and safety legislation. Our safety program is reviewed each calendar year by the CEO and an updated program is distributed to staff.
We take our duty to provide a safe work environment seriously and in accordance with the Workers Compensation Act, conduct regular inspections and assessments of our operations to identify and mitigate possible hazards which might result in personal injury and/or property loss or damage. Our Joint Health and Safety Committee Members are trained to perform these assessments, communicate the hazards, and recommend improvements.
All newly hired employees at Heritage participate in an onboarding program which includes training specific to the job functions they perform, notification of potential hazards and education on safe work procedures. Employees are also provided with annual refresher training on Heritage’s Safety Program.
New training is provided whenever the need arises or as identified to prevent potential injuries. Cross-functional teams work to identify new opportunities and include all impacted employees in the training groups.
To ensure our safety culture, Heritage Office Furnishings maintains constant communication between management, supervisors and workers on health and safety issues as they apply to the design, operation and maintenance of our worksites. Health and safety is an integral part of Heritage Office Furnishings’ everyday business. It is in the best interest of all workers to join together and practice health and safety principles in all work activities.
