Each province has specific legislation that highlights regulatory obligations of employees, employers, and contractors. Make sure you’re following the legal requirements of the province you are working in:
The EPCOR site contact will arrange for site access. Contractors must provide proof of all certifications for the work they will be doing while on the EPCOR site contact at the pre-mobilization meeting. Copies of relevant certifications, along with expiry dates, will be taken and logged by EPCOR.
The Pre-Mobilization Meeting is intended to communicate EPCOR’s expectations of the contract. It will also introduce the project team members and review project based elements such as scope, HSE requirements, communication, schedules, quality assurance, progress payments, and construction completion.
Before beginning any work on an EPCOR site, the contractor and any sub-contractors must complete orientation training. This will be organized by a designated EPCOR site contact. Orientations will include a site-specific overview for the site or sites you will be working on as well as a walkthrough of appropriate site(s) and areas where you will be working. If contract work will take place at a location that is not at an EPCOR site, such as a roadway, an orientation is still required and will include safety rules and expectations. Contractor orientation will be recorded and the contractor will be provided with a record to indicate that they have completed orientation training and are allowed to work on EPCOR sites.
The contractor is responsible for ensuring that all their workers and subcontractors comply with all applicable HSE legislation for the jurisdiction of work being executed.
The contractor shall enforce all applicable safety rules and regulations to all individuals under their supervision, including subcontractors, on the work site.
The contractor shall be responsible to:
EPCOR has identified 10 Life Saving Rules to encourage consistent behaviours which can help prevent the kind of incidents that could result in a serious injury or fatality on our sites. The Life Saving Rules are not just rules, but are intended to focus on a certain group of practices associated with higher hazard activities. The aim of the Life Saving Rules is to build more awareness about the appropriate safe behaviours and practices and the need for consistency when engaging in these behaviours. There is a reference to the associated rule in each section in the manual where the Life Saving Rules apply directly.
Any incident that involves the violation of any of these rules will be thoroughly investigated. Based on the findings of the investigation, individuals found in breach of the aforementioned life-saving rules will be subject to EPCOR's disciplinary processes, up to and including removal from further work on EPCOR projects.

The contractor shall advise EPCOR in writing, of the person(s) who will ensure continuous compliance with applicable requirements. This list should include the contractor's supervisor and as many representatives as the contractor determines are required to ensure appropriate supervision and safe performance of all jobs on the work site. A 24-hour emergency telephone number(s) shall be provided. The individuals noted shall have the authority to correct safety deficiencies. EPCOR reserves the right to approve the contractor's supervisor and/or safety staff.
Supervisors provided by contractor must be competent, and clear limits of authority need to be established for the contractor's supervisor.
EPCOR's safety and environmental program is based on OHSAS 18001 and ISO14001 requirements. All contract work on EPCOR sites is done according to a signed contract agreement that includes health, safety and environmental expectations. Contractors should also have and follow their own corporate HSE program, work site specific HSE plans, along with applicable HSE legislation and other applicable regulations.
Contractors are required to keep documentation and records, conduct work observations and/or inspections to review the safety and environmental aspects of the task being observed, and complete monthly performance reports as required.
Daily Safe Work Plans/FLHAs must take place at the start of each shift or task. EPCOR will monitor and track contractor performance against legal and other requirements. The EPCOR OH&S Policy is in accordance with the following provincial codes and standards:
