At Rutherford, safety is an integral part of the way we do business.  A member of the Ontario General Contractor’s Association (OGCA) Safety Group since 2004, the strength of our Health & Safety program far exceeds those of the competition.

Our program includes ensuring that all field employees are trained in Standard First Aid as a condition of employment.  We practice holding monthly management safety meetings to provide our staff with in-house safety training and education, as well as allow a forum for sharing and awareness of safety challenges.  We have and continue to provide formal training to our staff in construction safety as part of their professional development, a 13-day Certification training course provided by Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA).

We support our employees’ pursuance of Gold Seal Certification; many of the Health & Safety training courses we provide apply to this accreditation.
