As you probably know, if you’ve ever dealt with us, we constantly strive to go well above and beyond the minimum requirements for health and safety. As a matter of fact, Rob Tournour Masonry Ltd. is the only masonry company on Vancouver Island with a Certified Quantity Surveyor on staff, and also the only masonry company on Vancouver Island that has a Certified Safety Officer and is COR Certified by WorkSafe BC.
But what does this mean, really?
Well, the Certificate of Recognition (COR) is given to employers who participate in “WorkSafeBC’s voluntary Partners in Injury and Disability Prevention Program“, a program for employers who create and adhere to health and safety management systems, with views to improve workplace safety and help injured workers return to work in a safe and timely way. Throughout the program, the employers work with a Certifying Partner to meet the program’s very high standards. In order to actually get the Certificate of Recognition the employer then has to pass a thorough audit.
It means we always think in terms of “Safety First“: our employees are safety conscious, our managers strict and vigilant in all safety related issues, and our equipment always adequate to the task at hand, well kept and inspected according to manufacturer’s specifications and always of the foremost standards in terms of quality. At its most fundamental level, it means our company itself is geared to work in this fashion. At Rob Tournour Masonry Ltd. Safety First is not just the Best Practice, but the Only Practice.
Because of our safety conscious approach, we have less man-hours and work-hours loss, and much less of a whole host of other expensive costs associated with unsafe practices. Therefore we can pass the savings to you – both in terms of time and money – and we can deliver our work in schedule. Always.
