Attention Builders

To all client and prospective clients:

Recently with the changes to Alberta workplace health and safety legislation and the implementation of our company safety program our company set a new goal to keep our workers safe and our jobsites in compliance with the government. Safety is a concern for all of us and for a safety program to work we all need to be on the same page.

Employers, workers, suppliers and Prime contractors all have responsibilities under Alberta legislation.

We are all responsible to ensure a safe work environment and compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Regulations and Codes. With this being said, we will all be accountable if there was a serious accident due to below standard conditions.

Creative Drywall & Plaster Inc. will conduct a hazard assessment on every worksite on the areas that only affect our workers (interiors & safe entrance/exit). Worksites need to be in compliance with the laws for me to allow my workers to complete their jobs. The major battle we face is the safety railings on stairways and other various fall hazards in a worksite.

Guardrails need to be installed and our workers need to be able to work around them. Fastening railings to the studs and to close to the corners of walls are taken down to complete our work and cannot be reinstalled there is nowhere to fasten them to. Safety boots seem to work best on most residential sites. Railings can be quickly lifted out and put back in place for scaffold access, installed properly with drywall stages in mind we can usually work around them without ever putting our workers at risk. They can be found at www.safetyboot.com there is a contact for the Calgary dealer.

Safety inspections to monitor our workers will be done regularly to ensure worker and site compliance.

Hazard assessments and safety inspections that show site conditions, as a problem will be sent to the builder and the site problems or corrective actions that need to be employed are left with you.

The process will be that we fix the problems we can with PPE, safe work procedures, and worker training. Items sent to you are site problems that should be corrected for the hazard assessment and control to be complete. Once the corrections are in place the compliance by & date should be filled out and faxed back to us so we are all covered and are system is complete.

One serious accident could put a company out of business provincial fines first offence could be as high as $500,000 and or 6 months in jail. Creative Drywall & Plaster Inc. is focused on protecting our customers, workers and our business any safety concerns of yours with us will be dealt with immediately.

Thank you for your support,
