Challenger Geomatics Ltd. is committed to a high standard of excellence in health and safety processes that protects our employees, their families, our property, and the general public.
Challenger Geomatics firmly believes people are the company’s most important asset. Each individual is important to their family, community and Challenger Geomatics. Incidents and injuries are always costly to the individual and often disastrous to the future and security of the individual’s family. To this end, we believe the achievement of performance objectives at the expense of personal injury is not acceptable.
Employees at every level are responsible and accountable for Challenger Geomatics’ health and safety performance. Active participation by every employee, every day, and on every job is necessary for the safety excellence Challenger Geomatics expects.
Not only are employees expected to follow all policies and procedures, but they are also expected to take an active role in addressing any issues and teaching others to do the same.
Management will provide leadership in our health and safety programs through the development of policies, hazard assessment, safe work practices and procedures including the provision of proper equipment, training and resources to each employee.
Challenger Geomatics’ philosophy is to maintain a healthy and safe workplace and the encouragement and education of a healthy and safe home environment. Challenger Geomatics’ goal is ZERO incidents on the job while fostering an atmosphere of ZERO incidents off the job.
Since Challenger’s incorporation in 1984, health and safety in the workplace has been an essential part of our business. Challenger has been a COR certified company since 2001, and is currently enjoying the rewards of a discount on our Alberta WCB rate thanks to our record of health and safety excellence.
Challenger is currently registered with three major safety registries: ComplyWorks, ISNetworld, and Avetta. Our company health and safety manual exceeds the minimum requirements of the above registries, and can be made available upon request along with WCB Employer Premium Rate Statements, WCB clearance letters, monthly and yearly safety statistics, certificates of insurance, contacts for safety personnel within our organization, and more.
