Safety practices


Safety is our priority

Safety is our highest priority and we uphold this commitment by providing an extensive safety training program that ensures all workers are trained to a level of hazard recognition that is above the industry standard.

Paramount Structures was founded in 1994 with a specialty in residential high-rise concrete forming. Paramount Structures has always aimed to perform beyond expectations and we feel that we've always set an example for quality and excellence in our field.


Program and procedures

Safety as a primary focus

With hands-on active involvement of the Smart Safety management specialists within our organization we ensure that corporate objectives and standards are achieved, and that project safety is tailored to the specific attributes and hazards associated with our work. Smart Safety is made up of individuals dedicated to ensuring that all Paramount Structures staff, contractors, owners – on jobsites across the GTA – are able to work confidently and excel in a safe and controlled environment. But ultimately, success is achieved only with everyone's commitment and participation.
Smart Safety personnel are the coaches, mentors and leaders but it is everyone whose commitment and participation enables Paramount Structures to excel.
Paramount Structures commitment to achieving a "0-accident" working environment is just another part of building ‘Great Relationships’, with our own personnel, and everyone else associated with our work. It's not a commitment to an ideal, it's a commitment to our people!

We believe that each of us at Paramount Structures plays a vital role in achieving a safe working environment. Paramount Structures Health and Safety standards continue to surpass government requirements and standard industry practices and even though our Health and Safety Program has earned us a safety record that consistently exceeds the industry average by 95%, we continue to strive for continuous improvement and the ultimate record of a 0-accident workplace. We are industry leaders, and we intend to keep it that way!
By actively participating in industry based safety groups and sharing the resources of our company with other workplace parties, we are able to expect higher performance from our subcontractors and enable their success. Full integration of safety planning with construction scheduling allows a maximum level of proactive safety, which in turn, creates higher efficiency and productivity. That said, it's not just good business practice to look after all our employees but the inherent belief of senior management that every worker deserves to work in a safe environment.
