Health & Safety
The Health and Safety of our staff and clients is paramount. Every reasonable precaution will be taken to ensure the safety of all of our team members. In order to achieve this goal, Intek Communications Inc. has implemented:
- Health and safety regulations
- A safe work environment
- Identification of possible hazards, evaluation and effective controls
Intek Communications Inc. has also created and fully supports our own internal Joint Health and Safety Committee. This committee is encouraged to come together to discuss concerns, review industry safety recommendations and to disseminate information throughout the teams..
We believe that employees cannot effectively perform their tasks unless they are in a safe work environment. By encouraging and requiring compliance to all industry standards, internal policies and recommendations, we hope to eliminate all work place injuries.
Our goal is to produce excellent quality while operating accident-free, on time, and economically. The health and well being of our employees and their families depends on the success of our safety programs. Therefore it is essential that workplace hazards be identified, appropriately evaluated, and effectively controlled.
