Commitment to Health and Safety

Health and safety first during pipeline construction

Somerville has a deeply embedded commitment to health and safety that informs every project and all the work that we do. Our corporate health and safety policies are not set and forget. Every project and every job results in refinements and revisions to ensure that all work is conducted in a manner that promotes safe, healthy, and environmentally friendly working conditions.

Safety Qualifications

Somerville staff and field auditors have the qualifications to complete health and safety training internally. Not only does this allow us to ensure that all workers have the proper training, it creates more efficient planning and operations for both Somerville and Somerville’s project partners.

 Train the Trainer Program

To create safer and more efficient work environments, Somerville is deeply invested in Train Trainer programs. Internally, we appreciate the peace of mind and assurance that comes from knowing our staff not only receive excellent health and safety training, but are also qualified to provide the top-notch training. We take pride in knowing, for example, that of the three certified trainers for ground disturbance in Ontario, one of them is in-house at Somerville.

For our project partners, this level of in-house health and safety means a guarantee that Somerville will always deliver the a compliant, certified, and safe project, staffed by workers who adhere to sterling health and safety requirements. It also means that Somerville is poised to plan, mobilize, and execute every project with the utmost efficiency without comprising health or safety standards.
