SHEQ

Safety, Health, Environment, and Quality (SHEQ) play a significant role in every project. As a responsible corporate citizen and good neighbour, we are committed to protecting the safety and health of both the people and the environment in the communities in which we work. Safe work is more productive, and leads to healthy lives and a clean environment. Points Athabasca uses a comprehensive SHEQ management system which meets or exceeds governing regulations and industry standards and provides direction to meet our objective of continual improvement.

    Safety & Health

    Our people are our most important resource. And making sure everyone goes home safe is our top priority. That’s why safety is written into everything we do, for every project, for every minute of the day. We believe that all safety-related incidents are foreseeable, predictable and preventable. We strive for zero incidents on each project through sound management and utilization of our resources, a comprehensive system, and strong supervisory presence. Before starting work on any project, our employees and line management complete risk assessment activities to ensure risks are identified and minimized before project and work tasks proceed.

    As a Saskatchewan Construction Association COR Certified company, we work closely with the SCSA to ensure we follow the highest industry standards. For us, safety is about far more than mere regulatory compliance. We see safety as a continual drive for achievement and improvement, because safety benefits everyone: our employees, their families and loved ones, our company, and our clients. Our goal is to eliminate incidents, injuries and asset loss.

    Environment

    Part of being a good corporate citizen is taking care of our environment, and we feel it’s important to take steps to reduce our environmental impact. As part of our comprehensive SHEQ program, we not only follow regulatory guidelines, but we have a dedicated SHEQ Manager who is committed to ensuring we meet our environmental responsibilities, focusing on measures such as improving how we manage our energy resources, effective equipment maintenance, and the recycling and reuse of resources. We continuously work hard on improving this area, because environmental management is a key consideration in building successful, sustainable projects that last.

    Quality Control

    We strive to do the best job possible, always. We commit to delivering all contracted work in a safe, qualitative, cost-effective manner that complies with legislated standards and regulated requirements. Using our Comprehensive Quality Assurance and Control Program, we define plans and procedures for work performance and documentation, and describe organizational responsibility within a project team to ensure compliance. Inspection and testing is done at regularly scheduled intervals, and quality is verified through continuous monitoring, inspection, testing, review, and audit of work activities. Quality assurance and control manuals that are specific to work site activities and conditions govern all our work from site preparation to commissioning.
