Our health and safety
Safety is in everything we do.
At the end of the day, what matters most is that everyone makes it home to their families.
Our health and safety record is well above industry standards. That’s because we have a safety culture, not just a safety program. Everyone at Modern Niagara plays a role in promoting health and wellbeing, and safety is embedded in all of our processes — from design and procurement to our service and client relations. Every month, health and safety reports are shared company-wide to ensure that we’re all on the same page. With matters related to safety, we are proactive, which means that we won’t hesitate to halt a project if we have health or safety concerns.
Modern Niagara’s dedicated Health and Safety Department supports our safety culture through the efforts of a national team of full-time safety specialists. We invest heavily in processes, procedures, and training and collaborate with researchers and academics to further promote safety and comply with all industry safety legislation and regulations without exception. And, we make sure our teams in the field have all the tools and protective equipment they need to work safely.
