#SafetyMatters

The Ontario Construction and Concrete Industries are very committed to safety. In fact the Concrete Ontario Association and its members truly believe that #SafetyMatters and the job isn’t done until all employees make it home safely every night. This means committed to your safety as a Concrete Delivery Professional and committed to the safety of other construction professionals and public around you.

Examples of governing safety standards in the industry include:

  • Ministry of Labour regulations
  • WSIB regulations
  • IHSA regulations
  • Ministry of Transportation regulations

The Concrete industry also provides leadership on safety through the construction industry through its voice at Concrete Ontario. Examples of Concrete-industry driven safety best practices can be found here: https://www.rmcao.org/publications/safety/.
