The OGCA is proud to announce that on November 29 at the Construct Canada Building Show, speakers Dan Fleming of EllisDon, David Frame of OGCA and Sean Scott of PCL Construction Toronto, introduced OGCA’s “The Safety Pass.”
With over 67 attendees, the session was a huge success. The session generated comments, feedback, and questions, indicating the immense industry interest. The question was asked – “Would you support a general HSE orientation that is industry recognized?” An outstanding 72% said yes. This percentage demonstrates the need for such a program as it raises the standard of safety awareness in the construction industry.
The Safety Pass will ensure that all construction site workers undergo basic health and safety awareness with the view to making a positive contributionn to the prevention of accidents and the avoidance of health hazards, and it is transferable.
There is still work that needs to be done. OGCA’s Safety Taskforce has dedicated time and expertise on this project. Their next task is to develop subcontractor guidelines. These guidelines will act as a tool to establish consistent requirements and expectations of subcontractors and generals, while sharing best practices.
In the New Year, OGCA will be approaching each member and asking you to review the Safety Pass and register to use it. If you have any questions, please contact Lyndsy Miceli at firstname.lastname@example.org
