It is our policy that every employee of W.O. Stinson & Son Ltd. is entitled to work under the safest possible conditions consistent with the Occupational Health and Safety Act. We make it our responsibility to implement and maintain Stinson safety in a healthy work environment, and it is our commitment to prevent occupational illness and injury in the workplace.

All employees are trained in our Stinson safety best practices, so that they understand their responsibilities and the safe practices for their roles. Our work sites are inspected on a regular basis to ensure that any safety hazards are corrected as soon as possible. It is wrong to believe that accidents are unavoidable and will always happen. We strongly believe that if we all do our part, including acting and talking safety at all times, a healthy attitude towards accident prevention and an improved safety record can be achieved.
