Al Farees Company, certified with OHSAS 18001 , is committed to the health-safety and environment of its employees and for all who are involved in our projects . The main objectives are the protection of the employees from injury or occupational disease. We aim a continuous improvement towards an accident-free workplace through a system involving an effective administration, education and training. All supervisors and workers must be dedicated to the continuous objective of eliminating the “near misses” which will greatly reduce the risk of injuries.
Our philosophy is that the well-being of our company and clients is dependent on the health and safety of the workforce. The Directors and Officers of the corporation promise that every precaution reasonable in all circumstances will be taken for the protection of all workers. No job is to be regarded so urgent that time cannot be taken to do it in a safe manner. The welfare of the individuals is the greatest concern.
Supervisors will be responsible for the health and safety of workers under their supervision. Supervisors are responsible to ensure that each worker who operates the machinery and equipment are safe and works in compliance with established safe work practices and procedures for each piece of the activity. Workers must receive adequate training in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety as well.
All supervisors, employees and subcontractors must protect their own and fellow workers’ health and safety by working in compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and all applicable regulations and safe work practices and procedures established by our company.
We recognize that a safe work environment can be established and sustained only through a united effort by all employees and subcontractors and the assistance of each person is also required. The employees’ attitude and cooperation in promoting accident prevention will assist in achieving our goal: “no one gets hurt”, and make our company the best place to work, one where employees share in corporate growth and success.
Everyone from the President to the general labors have the responsibility to ensure a safe and healthy workplace. The point is to work together to prevent incidents from creating unwanted losses and personal injuries or illnesses” .
