Health, Safety, Security & Environment (HSSE)

We highly value the health, safety and security of our employees, contractors and clients.  As individuals and as an organization we are committed to demonstrate visible safety leadership to prevent all injuries, incidents and environmental impacts and ensure compliance with the local regulations and legislation.  Our goal is to ensure that every person returns home safely at the end of each day’s work and incorporates these principles into their personal life.

We ensure that our employees are provided high quality trainings to identify potential hazards, comprehensive workplace evaluation to appropriately manage the associated risk levels, and provide responsive, safe and trusted solutions to our clients.

We constantly look for opportunities to improve our services and processes and be recognized by our clients, peers and stakeholders as innovators and leaders in health, safety and security.

We foster cooperation and collaboration in our organization and we promote safety as everyone’s responsibility.

Our HSSE program has been developed and maintained based on ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001 standards for development, implementation and monitoring.


Our QA/QC program is part of the SNC-Lavalin's Integrated Management System (IMS) and has been developed and maintained based on ISO 9000 standards. Under our management's commitment, we ensure that the quality system is maintained and implemented as intended.

Employee awareness of the quality management system and quality objectives has a vital impact on maintaining a vigilant implementation of the documented procedures. Therefore employee awareness is enhanced through timely presentations during the induction process, project execution and the scheduled quality auditing schemes.
