Through demonstration and full commitment towards safety stewardship, Christensen & McLean Roofing Co. continues work within the safety community to promote the value and benefits of the continuance of practicing health and safety at the workplace.
Our goal: “Zero Harm” at the workplace.
Christensen & McLean Roofing Co. is committed to workplace environment that makes safety a priority. An objective driven standard such as “Zero Harm” fully supported by Senior Management ensures that projects large or small meet or exceed both Provincial Occupational Health and Safety Standards along with client expectations.
Safety is not unlike any facet of business, which must be monitored for success. Incident and hazard reduction requires a team effort by employees and managers for success. Consumers focusing strictly on cost many times acquire services from contractors who do not implement the use of Best Safety Practices on the work site, subjecting owners / clients to liability exposure.
Our well-balanced operation, workers, equipment, and materials are brought together in the work environment to provide our clients with a superior product installed by trained professional installers.
At Christensen & McLean Roofing Co. loss control, like productivity, quality, cost, and personal relations, is a strategic process. To be fully effective loss control is integrated into our day-to-day activities of business.
