Maintaining The Highest Standards
Silhouette of a construction worker on site, we strive to identify, eliminate or control hazards and prevent injuries on our worksites by:
• Ensuring our employees and contractors get the training and experience they need to work safely• Working collaboratively with our service providers and contractors to create safer worksites and areas • Investigating incidents and learning from them to prevent reoccurrences • Stressing the importance of safe driving • Demanding alcohol- and drug-free workplace• Communicating our safety successes and challenges openly Our environment, health, and safety principles guide our behaviour and help our staff achieve the desired level of performance. By following the structures, practices, and procedures stemming from the principle guide, we meet our required accountabilities and demonstrate sound performance to all stakeholders. Driver distraction practice prohibits the use of communications devices such as cell phones, both hand-held and hands-free, and other electronic devices, including PDAs, while driving either a company vehicle or a personal/rental vehicle on company business.
We are concerned about corporate members within our industry-wide initiative that encourages management to visit frontline workers and talk about safety. Employees and contractors from across our operations participate in this initiative for safer driving. We are very passionate about this issue of accident prevention and ask people to speak out when they see a behaviour or any situation that puts others at risk - before an injury or incident occurs.
Our Environment Project Funding
We regularly review our activities to find ways to make lasting improvements. To ensure we're getting it right, we ask landowners, residents, and other stakeholders for feedback on how we're doing as good neighbours. We intend to conduct surveys within the communities to identify concerns across our operations in each local. These surveys help us to understand better our impact on the communities influenced.
To meet the principles defined in our Corporate Constitution and Corporate Responsibility Policy, we develop guides that provide direction to employees and contractors regarding our engagement practices and accountability. We have guidelines that provide clear expectations of our agents, including external broker representatives. We expect all agents acting on our behalf to act with integrity and treat all participants and affected communities respectfully. Corporate agents are trained to know the regulatory requirements and fundamental information about our company, particularly the industry in general, to reflect our values.
Our stakeholders include private shareholders, employees and contractors, landowners, communities, private sector partners and competitors, government, financial institutions, regulators, and civil society organizations such as environmental non-government organizations and community-based organizations.
We encourage a foundation of courteous behaviour in the communities in which we operate. We have partnered with communities to understand their concerns, which include traffic, gates, dust, noise, and garbage. We have established clear expectations for our employees and contractors to address those concerns.

Employee Giving Programs
Our corporate encourages each employee to make a difference in their community through our annual giving campaign, matching gifts, and employee volunteer programs.
This volunteer program allows employees and their immediate families to apply for grants based on the number of hours they volunteer with a non-profit or charitable organization. To begin the program, we will establish specific areas applicable to celebrate employees and their families participating in volunteer activities in their communities. Family volunteer program examples would be employee families participating in activities such as a community clean up, repairing carts, and bicycles, planting community vegetation (trees, shrubs, and flowers) for community beautification, playground and sports field clean up and maintenance, and other applicable programs that may arise.
