This month, Health & Safety is turning to you for your input.
First, let’s get some perspective on the purpose of this column.
RESCON’s membership is full of builders who are innovative and believe in best practices in health and safety in residential construction. Our association’s health and safety committee brings together the industry’s safety leaders to discuss all issues related to H&S, WSIB and related stakeholder outreach and engagement.
Having said that, we’d like to ask for your feedback so that we can feature all of our members and highlight their innovative or best practices approach within our industry’s health and safety community.
In November, the focus is on debris netting, used by RESCON members including Tridel, Tucker Hi-Rise, Menkes and Daniels. We recently toured a high-rise at Yonge and Eglinton and took a close look and a lot of photos of these incredible safety nets, which go above and beyond the requirements of Ontario’s health and safety regulations for construction sites.
If your company is going above and beyond, we want to let the industry know. As the GTA’s builder-exclusive association, we know we have the leaders of our industry as members, but we need to do a better job telling your stories. This is where we’d like to start.
Andrew Pariser is the vice-president of RESCON and is the chair of the association’s health and safety committee. Contact him @RESCON_VP or firstname.lastname@example.org.
