The Black & McDonald Way

The Black & McDonald Way is the company's ongoing initiative ensuring that management and employees live up to the company's core values. Beyond a program of continuous training, it is in effect, a reciprocal promise between employee commitment and management support provided in six key areas:

  • Health, Safety and the Environment
  • Planned Growth and Profitability
  • Customer Satisfaction and Loyalty
  • Continuous Improvement Culture
  • Employee Satisfaction and Loyalty
  • Community Responsibility

Continuous Improvement

We believe that in order to differentiate ourselves from our competitors, we must be continuously looking for ways to improve our business processes and work environment. Black & McDonald's continuous improvement initiative is designed to train, trust and empower our employees to exceed the expectations of our internal and external customers.

Occupational Health & Safety

Black & McDonald is committed to the uncompromising safety of employees in the workplace and takes pride in our long-standing history of injury prevention. Prepared for the toughest work environments, we invest extensively in training and awareness, and continue to maintain our record of less than half the industry frequency of incidents. Our goal is zero lost time incidents, our motto "No one gets hurt today or tomorrow".

Quality Assurance

We work hard to offer the best quality possible to our customers. Successful quality programs have been implemented since 1978 on Black & McDonald projects in mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, utility and civil applications meeting applicable project-specific standards of CSA, ASME, ISO, TSSA and federal, provincial and corporate requirements.

Job Management

Systems and procedures are in place to ensure our clients receive outstanding quality workmanship at a fair price. Our approach maximizes project safety and management efficiency while minimizing exposure to risk. Our National Project Management Manual documents our lessons learned in over 90 years in business. Checks and balances are in place throughout the computerized estimating, job control, purchasing, reporting and operations aspects of our projects.

Environmental Responsibility

The Black & McDonald environmental policy ensures employees work diligently to identify, manage, and control potential environmental hazards encountered in the execution of our work. This heightened awareness serves to protect our staff, clients and the public in accordance with industry standards and in compliance with regional legislative requirements.

Community Responsibility

Black & McDonald commits to giving back to the communities where we live and work.
