Fabric Structure Health & Safety
Legacy Building Solutions® is committed to the ongoing health and safety of our employees, customers, partners and environment. This commitment is part of our business and operations planning and evidenced through our Health and Safety Management System (HSE MS).
Safety Is Important On and Off the Jobsite
The HSE MS was developed in accordance with ISO 9001:2008 and CAN/CSA Z1000-06 regulations and is intended to prevent workplace injuries, occupational disease and near misses. The HSE MS is a cooperative effort between senior management, supervisors, employees, contractors and temporary employees, guests and visitors. The HSE MS contains five main elements:
- Management commitment and HSE policy: An overview of Legacy’s operations, management commitment and HSE policy.
- Planning: Addresses responsibilities, objectives and targets, and compliance.
- Implementation and operation: HSE management is incorporated and implemented into all aspects of the business.
- Checking and corrective action: Legacy monitors HSE activities and addresses non-conformance issues – reporting, recording and investigation.
- Management review: Describes the process for ensuring the elements of the HSE MS are “sufficient and necessary.”
Implementation of the HSE MS is everyone’s responsibility, including senior management, jobsite foremen and crew members. Management takes every reasonable precaution for the health and safety of all workers, including providing safe equipment and necessary training. Crew members are empowered to proactively look for ways to identify and eliminate unsafe conditions.
Everyone is to assume that if a job is to be done, there is time to do it safely. A safer installation process is one of the hallmarks of the innovative Legacy fabric building design. By working together to keep safety at the forefront of everything we do, Legacy will continue to lead the industry in building and construction safety.
