Occupational Health & Safety

Our Occupational Health & Safety Department provides support in all aspects of health and safety relating to field and administrative operations. We are committed to ensuring the health and well being of the public, the environment and all Dufferin Construction Company’s employees, subcontractors and suppliers.

Dufferin’s priority is focused on the mission of ZEROHarm to people, and our culture is one where all employees are aware that their health and safety is of our highest concern and a condition of employment. The two pillars of the ZEROHarm protocol are Communication and Ownership, and to support this we have implemented a robust Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Management System that provides management and employees with the structure and programs required to achieve this protocol within our culture.
