Management of Grant Transport is vitally interested in the health and safety of its employees. A major ongoing objective is to protect employees from workplace injury or illness.  Grant Transport makes every effort to provide a healthy and safe working environment. All supervisors and workers must be dedicated to the objective of reducing the risk of injury and illness.

As an employer Grant Transport is ultimately responsible for worker health and safety.  As president and shareholder I am committed to taking every reasonable precaution to protect workers from harm. 

  Supervisors are accountable for the health and safety of workers under their supervision.  Supervisors are responsible to ensure that equipment and machinery are safe and that workers follow established safe work practices and procedures.   Workers must receive adequate training in their specific work task to protect their health and safety.

  Every employee, sub-contractor and worker of a subcontractor must protect his or her own health and safety by following the law, and Grant Transportís safe work practices and procedures.

  All parties are expected to consider health and safety in every activity. Commitment to health and safety must form an essential part of this organization from the president to the workers.
