Health and Safety
AGAT Laboratories believes that Health and Safety is more than a series of policies and procedures designed to satisfy corporate governance or legislative requirements. Health and Safety is a philosophy that is essential to the successful operation of each of our locations.
AGAT Laboratories’ award-winning Health and Safety Program provides health and safety guidelines for all of our employees as well as to our clients. This program is designed to ensure compliance with legislative standards as well as for continuous improvements to the safety initiatives of our operations.
Through the designation of safety representatives and the implementation of weekly Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) meetings in all laboratories, we ensure that the highest standards of safety are being met. These meetings work to maintain our programs for accident prevention, hazard identification, and incident and near miss reporting.
Committed to environmentally friendly initiatives, AGAT Laboratories conducts all activities in accordance with current environmental regulations and standards. We recognize that in order to make our environmental goals a reality, there must be active participation and support from all employees within the organization. To ensure that our environmental programs are followed, we regularly communicate and reinforce all related objectives to our employees so that our goals and requirements are understood and followed by all levels within the organization.
Through these management systems, AGAT Laboratories continues its commitment to sound environmental practices and the observance of applicable environmental laws and regulations.
