Health + Safety

TAKING CARE OF OUR PEOPLE AND YOURS

A strong health and safety program is a core component of our business and an integral part of every job we do.

We are committed to maintaining a safe work environment for both our customers and staff. We are a certificate of recognition (COR) certified company and currently have a rating of 96% with our Enform external audit.

The TOG Health and Safety Program

With a goal of zero workplace incidents, our health and safety program exceeds industry standards, setting us apart from other operations. There are four essential core principles:

  • Every employee is responsible for a safe workplace. Employees are responsible for wholehearted, genuine cooperation and compliance with all aspects of the TOG health and safety program. All employees are encouraged to bring concerns, improvements, and ideas to meetings, allowing them to actively participate in continuously improving the safety program.
  • Management solicits and responds to employee health and safety concerns. Management works closely with staff and accepts responsibility for leading and effectively implementing the program. Employees are actively involved in reviewing and updating the program.
  • Any employee who discovers an unsafe condition must report it immediately. Each employee is responsible for investigating every accident promptly and thoroughly to find the root cause and correct the problem to prevent it from recurring. At TOG Systems, this is done by everyone in the company, including employees, managers, and owners. Employees receive incident investigation training annually, helping to ensure that all incidents are investigated thoroughly.
  • Employees are responsible for complying with all rules and regulations. This involves continually using safe work practices and procedures while performing their duties.

Our commitment to safety starts with in-depth, weekly safety meetings with all staff. We review new or updated safety information, review and discuss any issues or concerns from the previous week’s work (if applicable), and give recognition to staff members who have met or exceeded safety standards. During these meetings, team members have an opportunity to come to us with safety concerns they may have spotted on job sites. We then collaborate on creating a safe work practice or procedure for that particular safety concern.

TOG Systems employees do daily vehicle maintenance checklists, as well as JSA and field-level risk assessments before completing any work in the field. When dispatched to a location, an informal tailgate meeting is held, either in person or by phone, with supervisors and employees involved in that particular job.

Both employees and employers share the responsibility for safety. TOG Systems has made safety a priority and this is demonstrated by owner involvement, financial commitment to ongoing improvements, and continued maintenance of the TOG health and safety program and ongoing employee safety training.
