Safety is Sysco’s first priority on site –
for workers and for the community. Overall, there is a commitment
to meet or exceed all requirements of Nova Scotia’s Occupational
Health and Safety Act and Regulations.
There is a detailed safety plan in place and a commitment to continuous
improvement in policies and practices. Contractors and sub-contractors
must abide by this master plan. In addition, Sysco has a full time
safety officer as a watchdog for the entire project. Below is a
copy of the Health and Safety Plan in pdf format. You will need
a copy of Adobe Reader. You can get your free copy at the Adoabe
Overall, Sysco places emphasis on proactive approaches to prevent
accidents, injury and illness through an internal responsibility
system based on the cooperation and involvement of all workplace
parties in occupational health and safety matters.
The job of demolition and site clean up at Sysco is a major one
– with a high degree of complexity. We are serious about safety
at Sysco. Our goal is to keep all of our workers safe and healthy,
so they can continue to make an important contribution to their
workplace, their communities and their families.
