Health & Safety Commitment

Health & Safety

When we say that we “Provide Peace of Mind” we're talking about what we do, and our values and culture. Our most important asset is our people and that is why safety is an integral part of our job.

Our Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) program is best-in-class for a reason. Each and every person is responsible and accountable for safety – from senior management to each individual team member. Our health and safety responsibilities and expectations are embedded into management systems, processes and have an influence on everything we do as a company. From our comprehensive “Leadership Engagement Safety Visits” to jobsite work procedures, our safety programs go above and beyond regulatory standards to ensure everyone’s safety at our sites.

The Universal Group’s OHS Program provides:

  • Corporate policy, assigned responsibilities and workplace rules
  • Hazard assessment and controls
  • On-going work orientation, training, education and communication
  • Task-specific safe work practices and procedures
  • Equipment operation and maintenance practices and procedures
  • Safety requirements and systems that focus on management, employee and trade contractor awareness to reduce the risk of workplace incidents
  • Leading and lagging indicators, audits, and reporting
  • Emergency management and response systems and procedures
  • An enterprise-based company-wide incident management system
  • An Injured Worker Engagement Program so any injured employee can continue safe and meaningful work during recovery

The Universal Group also employs a team of health and safety professionals to work closely with our managers and workers to support our diversified operations.

COR Certification
The Universal Group is proud to have several operating companies that are “COR” certified. The Certificate of Recognition is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes companies who develop and implement health and safety and injury management systems that meet an industry standard.
