The safety and well being of our employees is our number one priority. At CRH Canada, creating a safe work environment is part of our culture. We want everyone to go home safely at the end of every day. Our ultimate goal is “Zero Harm to People.”

To achieve this goal, we have a rigorous safety system that touches every aspect of our operations. We believe that all injuries can be prevented through the vigilance and empowerment of every employee. Ongoing training is provided to ensure safety remains top of mind at all times. We encourage employees to find and share innovative ways to make their jobs and environments safer for themselves and others.

Our business divisions have received numerous safety awards from industry associations recognizing our achievements in program development, staff training, industry contribution and safe-work-record accomplishments.

Over the years, our employees have participated in industry safety programs and have shared best practices with members of various construction associations. This participation and strong commitment at every level of our organization enables us to champion safety and raise awareness of the critical importance of health and safety to the Canadian construction industry.
