committed to health and safety

Ventana implements the following through our Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Program:

  • People-first philosophy
  • ‘Relationships to build on’
  • Educational and consultative approach to HSE
  • Collaborative work environment with subcontractors to share in the success of our HSE Program

We work hard to ensure that all employees and sub-trades on our sites are safe and emphasize the importance of workplace safety through proactive supervision and management. We embody safe construction practices to reflect our effectiveness as a contractor and as a good corporate citizen, as well as a genuine concern for the well-being of everyone on our projects.

We have spent considerable time and effort to implement a comprehensive HSE Program, obtain Certificate of Recognition (COR™) certification with the BC Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA) to exceed WorkSafeBC requirements, and improve job site safety. Ventana’s HSE Program is audited annually  to maintain COR™ certifications and enhance HSE.

To ensure successful implementation of our HSE Program, we employ a full-time Health, Safety and Environment Manager to oversee Ventana’s HSE Program, along with full-time site-level HSE Coordinators to coordinate job site safety; in addition to our safety-conscious Project Superintendents and Supervisors that oversee safe construction operations. Our on-site team ensures all safety requirements and protocols are in place prior to starting work on a project and continue through to project completion.

Ventana is dedicated to providing a safe and healthy environment for every employee, worker and visitor on-site, and in order to deliver this, we continually review and update our HSE Program. We require that every contractor working on our projects has a WorkSafeBC account in good standing for the duration of each contract.
