We teach our expectations, why we have those requirements, and equip people with the right knowledge.
We coach people on how they can meet those requirements; we don't tell.
We mentor so we can all be successful today and for the long term.
Power's expectations for Contractors:
- Be an active participant in the project and the safety program. Conduct site audits of your work and address any safety concerns.
- Support your employees with training and equipment to do the job safely.
- Understand Power's safety requirements and expectations, and any other applicable safety standards.
- Foster and promote a safe and healthful work environment.
Site Safety Coordinator Program
Power's Site Safety Coordinator Program provides an additional safety resource on the jobsite. Site Safety Coordinators, comprised of Union Carpenters and Laborers, complete a structured training and development program that prepares them to assist our project teams with the implementation of Power's safety program.
The benefits of this program include peer to peer safety discussions, additional support for safety in the field and leadership opportunities for Power's Tradespeople.
We use project management tools to collaborate electronically on many of our projects, enabling participants to access and enter data in real time.
