HEALTH, SAFETY & ENVIRONMENT POLICY
Sterling-Ridge’s primary goal while working on any project is to protect members of our team, as well as the general public, from injury. We understand and recognize that attaining a goal of “0 lost time injuries” is very difficult and extremely challenging; however, we will work closely with all contractors/subcontractors and employees to make this goal a reality. We strive to complete projects on time, and in the most cost-effective manner while at the same time maintaining our commitment to safety as our #1 goal.
We believe that safety on a project is paramount and tends to lead to a better work environment allowing us to achieve success in delivery of a quality project on time and within budget. We insist on strict compliance with our Tier 1 National Health and Safety Policy.
Our Health, Safety and Environment Policy confirms compliance with all of the Contractors Health, Safety and Environmental Requirements. Sterling-Ridge makes its people, the public and the environment its priority.
Sterling-Ridge’s focus is on completing each project without incident; production does not supersede safety. A successful day on the job is one where all of our team members return home safely to their families

The success of a project is often dependent upon more than just superior engineering, procurement and construction. Recognition of the various stakeholder, their issues or concerns and how to address and/or mitigate those challenges is critical.
Consultation with stakeholders is more than an obligation for regulatory approval. It is a collective opportunity to minimize loss, maximize benefit and achieve outcomes greater than the sum of their parts.
Our Stakeholders Engagement Team has over 20 years experience of working in public policy and government relations. Our experience is in bringing all parties together so that projects run smoothly and on time. Federal, provincial, regional and municipal governments, including First Nations and environmental organizations, international corporations and local firms are engaged professionally to achieve and exceed the desired goals. Sterling-Ridge is committed to providing the expertise necessary for sustaining mutual interests amongst all stakeholders. With this leadership, we create positive relations amongst our clients, the public, the government and First Nations.
We at Sterling-Ridge recognize the importance of stakeholders to the success of your project and offer an experienced team to identify and manage those issues to ensure that your project can be constructed profitably and responsibly.
