Safety first, last and foremost

The health and safety of both JDS employees and on-site sub-contractors’ employees is our priority throughout our operations.

In the JDS Health and Safety Manual, we comprehensively address potential hazards associated with demolition work.

In addition, our safety department prepares detailed site-specific Work and Safety Plans (HASP) prior to project start-up. We then monitor, continually and strictly, to ensure that all JDS job-site rules, regulations and established working practices are followed without exception. These, in turn, exceed the industry’s standard safety regulatory requirements.

Our efforts have been rewarded. We have had zero lost-time accidents.
