Target: Zero Tolerance

Les Couvreurs Duro-Toit ensure that prevention is a team mission. When dangers are eliminated, no employee is at risk. That is why we are always on the lookout for better safety protocols.

Working Safely

Working at heights requires means of prevention which also extend to both the environment and the people nearby. Our roofers define a security perimeter before each project. If necessary, they can reroute traffic by installing sidewalks cones, road signs, and other prevention tools. Passersby and occupants are thereby notified of the work in progress. In addition, our team ensures compliance with safety criteria at work, namely:

  • Electrical safety.
  • Handling of materials.
  • Fall prevention.
  • Security perimeter of the work zone.
  • Scaffolding and guardrails.
  • Individual safety equipment.

Training for Working at Heights

Les Couvreurs Duro-Toit actively strive to achieve zero tolerance. Each week, the Security Officer visits the construction sites to inspect the premises. He takes the situation in hand if he has doubts about the safety of our employees or our suppliers. The officer is also responsible for training the employees on various practices of health and safety at work.
