Safe Environment

Safety Comes 1st. And 2nd. And 3rd

Environment and occupational health and safety are top of mind at EACOM.

Through collaboration and continuous improvement, we work to ensure safe working conditions, equipment and work sites. The cornerstone of our approach rests on involvement and accountability in identifying, preventing and eliminating dangerous conditions and risks of injury or illness.

In addition, we strive to continually reduce the environmental footprint of our operations by consuming less, emitting less and generating less waste. We identify, evaluate and control potential environmental risks.

We believe that close co-operation among management, employees, union representatives and contractors is essential to improving our performance. We conduct independent audits to verify compliance, reduce risk, and continually improve.
