Ensuring workplace safety is a continuous process that requires teamwork from everyone in the workplace: from workers and supervisors to management and visitors.
Squamish Terminal’s full commitment to safety is exemplified through our safety culture and our commitment to people. Squamish Terminals works to continuously develop and improve the safety principles that support all of our operations. We strive to achieve a safety culture and embedded safety behaviors exceeding any legislative requirement. We continuously evaluate and update our safety management system; worker and supervisor training; and worker interaction programs to meet the needs of the industry and of our workers.
At Squamish Terminals, we are committed to provide safe and healthy work conditions for the prevention of work-related injury and ill health.
The responsibility to meet this commitment is shared by management, administration, supervisors and longshore employees. This cooperative effort at all levels helps Squamish Terminals achieve a successful health and safety program. For our full Health and Safety Policy, click here.
