StFX Safety Programs

StFX Safety Programs

StFX Safety Programs are developed for critical or complicated tasks that contain clearly defined and detailed processes and requirements, including (but not limited to) training, competency verification, responsibilities, forms, etc. Most critical tasks require a program in the workplace to control identified hazards to help ensure employee safety. Employees must be trained in and follow all Programs that pertain to them. The requirement for Safety Programs is identified through the continuous and comprehensive hazard assessment processes and are reviewed by a JOHSC. All Safety Programs will be developed with input from the employees who do the work. They know the hazards best!

The most current version of StFX Safety Programs is kept on the OHS website. StFX Safety Programs include Four Safety Absolutes.

*Contractors note that permission is required from your StFX authorized representative prior to doing Safety Absolute or Hot Work tasks.
