Safety Standards and commitments
Stop Work Authority
All G-Force employees, contractors and subcontractors are trained in our company Stop Work Authority (SWA) Policy. All individuals possess authority and responsibility to STOP WORK if they witness or encounter a situation deemed as having the potential to cause harm or damage to any person or asset. G-Force investigates all SWA incidents and addresses any concerns to the satisfaction of all workers on that task.
As part of our environmental, health & safety commitment, all employees, contractors and subcontractors are required to report all incidents. Incidents include injuries, near misses, damage to any assets or equipment, observations of unsafe work, environmental issues and stop work incidents. Our leadership team strictly enforces our ‘No Retaliation’ practice in which no person shall be penalized or retaliated against for reporting of incidents. All incidents are investigated and used to help G-Force evaluate its performance, thus driving improvements to our EHS program.
Safe Start Operations
All G-Force employees, contractors and subcontractors must be ready for the ‘safe start’ of operations before beginning any job. Prior to operations beginning at job-sites, all present employees & contractors participate in JSA (Job Safety Analysis) meetings. During these meetings, the staff present documents the work to be completed during the work cycle, the expected hazards, and the steps taken to mitigate those hazards. After these items are identified, everyone at the job site is given the opportunity to participate in additional discussions of the hazards and to contribute. Our employees, supervisors, and leadership team all understand the importance of these meetings.
Training and Hiring
At G-Force, safety begins at the interview stage. Candidates are screened for adherence to safety practices. Upon hiring, new employees are introduced to our safety culture from day one and are required to undergo training specific to the company and again to their specific role. All company employees and subcontractors are engaged in our safety program and G-Force invests in a continuous education initiative for all levels within our organization. For task specific qualifications, G-Force maintains a staff of OQ qualified personnel and uses certified master evaluators with both Veriforce and EWN.
Responsibility and respect
All G-Force employees, contractors and subcontractors are responsible for not only their own actions, behaviors and choices; but also for the safety of the individuals working with them and the equipment on the job site. All persons associated with G-Force, regardless of their title or tenor, are required to demonstrate the utmost respect for themselves, each other and those in the communities in which we operate.
