Health and Safety Policy Statement

It is the policy of Dolyn Developments Inc. to perform work in the safest possible manner consistent with the Ontario Health and Safety Act (OHSA) and applicable Regulations for Construction Projects and industry standards. Protection of employees, from injury or occupational illness, is a major continuing objective. Management, office staff, supervisors and workers must be dedicated to the continuing objective of reducing risk of injury. As president of Dolyn Developments Inc., I give my personal promise that every reasonable precaution will be taken for the protection of workers.

Dolyn Developments Inc. will strive to eliminate any hazards that may result in damage to property or personal injuries by assigning general and specific responsibilities for workplace health and safety.

Management and supervisors will be held accountable for the health and safety of workers under their supervision.  At all times, we will strive to ensure that safe and healthy work conditions are maintained in all work areas.  We further ensure that all workers will receive adequate training in their specific work tasks to protect their health and safety.

As a condition of employment, workers will be expected to protect their own health and safety by working in compliance with the OHSA and its applicable Regulations, industry standards and the safe work practices and procedures established by Dolyn Developments Inc.. The company Health and Safety Program will be reviewed with employees upon hiring.

Any subcontractor hired to perform work or to provide a service for Dolyn Developments Inc. is responsible for ensuring that their workers work in compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act, applicable Regulations, any other legislation relating to the work/services being provided and the Dolyn Developments Inc. Health and Safety Policies and Program. 

It is the goal of Dolyn Developments Inc. to eliminate or minimize hazards that may cause accidents and injuries as well as those which create health hazards.  All accidents will be viewed as a serious matter and will be thoroughly investigated and, if necessary, changes will be adopted to minimize the likelihood of a repeat incident and/or accident.

Compliance with this policy will be reviewed regularly at all employee levels.  Violations will be recorded.  Repeated disregard or willful violations of this policy by any employee or subcontractor, at any level, may be considered cause for disciplinary action in accordance with the Dolyn Developments Inc. Enforcement Policy and existing laws.

Dolyn Developments Inc. recognizes that working in a safe environment is a right for its employees and further recognizes that the benefits of working in a safe and healthy work environment extend to Dolyn Developments Inc. employees, their families and friends.

Dolyn Developments Inc.

During the past seven years, I have impressed by the attitude, workmanship, expediency, and overall level of service consistently provided by the Dolyn staff and the various sub-contractors whose services they engage; in fact, CHEO does business on an on-going basis with several of the sub-contractors that Dolyn Developments has introduced to the Hospital.
As an organization, Dolyn Developments has consistently been able to respond to the Hospital's requests for service, the Dolyn staff have a good understanding of the special dust and infection control demands of carrying out renovations within a Hospital setting and have demonstrated the ability to bring the necessary resources to a project to meet tight deadlines.
