At Aecon, Safety isn’t just a part of our day-to-day business...it’s our number one core value.
From our frontline employees to our CEO, it is the responsibility of everyone at Aecon to ensure each worker, including direct employees and subcontractors, gets home safely to their families each and every day.
Our Guiding Safety Principles
Safety at Aecon
Our proactive Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) program is based on established behavioural safety techniques. Developed in-house, the program meets OHSAS 18001 standards and complies with all jurisdictions, in many cases exceeding local requirements. Auditing is conducted annually by the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA), and covers our oil and gas operations, civil infrastructure, ICI building construction, heavy civil and mining projects.
Aecon’s implementation of world-class safety systems and best practices enables us to focus on leading indicators that continuously drive improvements, year after year. Company staff includes over 170 dedicated safety personnel at job sites throughout Canada who ensure strict implementation of our program.
Aecon has consistently received a safety rating greater than 98% from the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA), a testament to the success of our SAFETY FIRST culture. As our company grows, we continue to improve our program and diligence. After all, when you're building things that matter, safety matters most.
