SAFETY AT
TYDON
CONTRACTING
TYDON CONTRACTING LTD. understands the importance of providing the safest workplace possible for our workers. The nature of our work presents active risks which need to be identified and mitigated appropriately. As Professional Engineers we "design out" risk at the very beginning of each project and we set forward alternatives to our clients prior to site mobilization. We strongly believe that this early engagement serves to set the tone for ensuring that all parties work together to provide the safest workplace possible.
Safety is paramount on our all construction sites to safeguard the well-being of our team and public. A commitment to safety ensures a secure working environment, preventing accidents and injuries. This not only upholds our moral responsibility but also adheres to legal regulations, avoiding potential fines and project disruptions. A safe site promotes productivity, minimizing delays and associated costs. It fosters a positive work culture, boosting morale and retaining skilled workers. Moreover, our dedication to safety enhances our reputation, attracting clients and partners. By prioritizing the health and safety of our team, we not only protect lives but also ensure the long-term success and sustainability of our construction projects.
To adhere to our safety plan on the construction site, our company implements a multifaceted approach, prioritizing the well-being of our team and maintaining compliance with industry standards. Key measures include:
  • Comprehensive Training Programs:
    • We conduct regular safety training for all employees, covering job-specific hazards, proper use of equipment, and emergency response protocols. All workers on TYDON sites receive Advanced First Aid Training prior to being sent to Project Sites.
  • Site-Specific Risk Assessments:
    • Before commencing any project, we conduct thorough risk assessments to identify and mitigate site-specific hazards, ensuring that our safety plan is tailored to the unique aspects of each construction site.
  • Clear Communication Channels:
    • We foster open communication channels among all team members, encouraging the reporting of potential hazards, near misses, or safety concerns promptly. This promotes a proactive safety culture.

    • Our safety plan involves both management and workers in the decision-making process. Each team member is accountable for their role in maintaining a safe working environment. Workers are challenged to provide feedback at all opportunities to make the work safer.
  • Emergency Response Preparedness:
    • We have a well-defined emergency response plan in place, regularly conducting drills and simulations to ensure that all personnel are familiar with evacuation procedures, first aid, and communication protocols.

  • Investigation and Learning from Incidents:
    • In the unfortunate event of an incident, we conduct thorough investigations to understand the root causes. The findings are used to implement corrective actions, fostering a culture of continuous improvement.
  • Subcontractor Coordination:
    • When subcontractors are involved, we ensure they adhere to our safety standards and provide them with the necessary information and resources to maintain a consistent approach to safety.
  • Documentation and Recordkeeping:
    • We maintain meticulous records of safety activities, including training records, inspections, and incident reports. This documentation not only ensures compliance but also serves as a valuable resource for future projects. We utilise the SAFETYLOOP Program and Cloud Platform for all our Safety Actitivites.
  • Regular Safety Audits:
    • Our company conducts periodic safety audits to assess the overall effectiveness of our safety plan. This helps identify areas for improvement and ensures that our safety measures evolve with changing project dynamics.

We purchase only the best safety equipment the industry can supply for our crews, and we maintain a live inventory of safety equipment in our Kleinberg Yard.
By adhering to these measures, our company establishes a robust safety culture, fostering a work environment where every team member is empowered to contribute to and benefit from a safe and secure construction site.
