Black & MCDonald



At Black & McDonald, we believe that excellence in Occupational Health, Safety & Environment is a philosophy inherent to how we do business in all aspects of our operations. We recognize our most important assets are our people, and that production, quality, and cost-effectiveness can be achieved through the daily integration of our Safety Management Systems and processes.

At Black & McDonald, the Health and Safety of people and the protection of our environment are fundamental values we observe when carrying out our business activities. We have been the recipient of numerous awards of excellence; yet we strive for continuous performance improvement and support a culture that believes that every incident is preventable and that a goal of zero incidents is achievable.

Many of our operations present potential risks to people and environment, and we believe the most effective way to meet our commitment is through a capable, committed workforce, and practices designed to enable safe and environmentally responsible operations. We accomplish this through a Safety Management System that has clearly defined policies and practices, which are rigorously applied to deliver our desired results.

Our Safety Management System Objectives are:

  • Implement consistent Safety Management measures to provide a safe workplace to the people, equipment, materials, and the environment.
  • Encourage a continuous improvement approach to Safety issues.
  • Support the development of our workers through orientation, training, task instruction and equipment awareness, job task analyses, toolbox talks and job analysis risk reviews.
  • Establish effective planning to identify hazards and effectively mitigate risk.
  • Reinforce our belief that all safety, health, and environmental incidents are preventable.
  • Promote and maintain a work environment in which each of us accepts personal responsibility for our own safety and that of our colleagues, and in which everyone actively participates to ensure the safety and wellness of others.

We believe these measures will help drive Black & McDonald closer to our vision of a workplace where "Nobody Gets Hurt Today or Tomorrow". Black & McDonald's depth of experience has made us the partner of choice across a wide range of industries.
To get there took time and effort. Our management team is committed to putting our people first in meeting our customer's challenges, in the most critical environments.

Black & McDonald has achieved the Certificate of Recognition (COR) in all provinces of Canada with the exception of Quebec.

In the United States, Black & McDonald memberships include the National Safety Council, American Society of Safety Engineers, Board of Certified Safety Professionals and the Association of General Contractors.
