Creating a safe and healthy work environment is a part of PCL’s dynamic culture and one of the organization’s most central guiding principles. PCL will not compromise the health and safety of its people. PCL employees look out for each other and all employees share in the organization’s goal of zero incidents.
ZERO INCIDENTS: A SHARED GOAL
With an average of more than 20 million work hours annually, the PCL family of companies maintain an overall total recordable incident rate (TRIR) and overall lost-time frequency rate (LTFR) among the lowest in the industry. PCL is committed to providing employees with equipment, training, and best practices to achieve a shared goal of zero incidents. PCL strives to have employees leave work and return to their families safely every day.
PCL’s innovative safety program has set standards for the construction industry. Its achievements include
- Safety Management Center—a web-based software solution used to reduce time spent creating safety reports, improve accuracy of tracking and providing real-time safety statistics, and help analyze trends using graphical data.
- Safety Observation System—teaching employees to eliminate hazards and dangerous conditions by correcting unsafe behavior through positive coaching.
- Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Manuals—a comprehensive system of policies, procedures, guidelines, and practices for performing work safely.
In addition to everyday safety programs and practices, every PCL operating company undergoes a thorough safety audit annually.
BRINGING SAFETY HOME
PCL recognizes that its most valuable asset is its employees. PCL is dedicated to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for all employees at work and at home. By demonstrating and communicating the importance of safety with family, friends, and neighbors, PCL’s safety culture extends beyond its job sites and offices and out into the community at large.
