Health and Safety Policy

Moggy Environmental is committed to making Health and Safety the highest priority for our team through the following actions:

  • The implementation of a Health and Safety Policy;
  • Ensuring our team receives and is current with the appropriate training, that is specific to the task and equipment being used;
  • Ensuring that all team members are certified in appropriate health and safety training including First Aid/CPR, Occupational Health and Safety Awareness, Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, General Orientation, Worksite Safety (e.g. City of Greater Sudbury Worksite Safety Program), and industry-specific (e.g. Vale Global Golden Rules, ZES Full Program);
  • Ensuring proper personal protective equipment, methods and protocols are understood, implemented and remain effective;
  • Site-Specific safety plans are developed in consultation with client requirements; and,
  • Policy and procedures are reviewed regularly to ensure they are up-to-date and effective.

Quality Policy

Moggy Environmental uses project management concepts and principles to ensure a quality project that is completed on-time and on-budget. This includes the implementation of a quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program with the necessary supervision, control and review to ensure the delivery of the project.

  • We prepare a detailed, project-specific QA/QC program prior to project commencement, and ensure it is closely monitored, by a designated person, to ensure that the work meets or exceeds expectations. Should the work fail to meet the accepted QA/QC program, a course of action will be implemented to address the issue to ensure it complies with project goals.
  • Procedures to guide the conduct of the work, checklists to remind/prompt and record consistent work performance, and interactive client communication processes ensure the project work is completed on time, on budget, and exceeding client’s expectations. Projects are completed according to standard operating procedures (SOP), and where project-specific issues arise, senior staff provides guidance to field staff and communicated to the client.
  • External sub-consultants and contractors are pre-qualified and selected on their qualifications, proven track records and dedication to achieving the client objectives. They are experienced with and have demonstrated the commitment and capability of delivering quality work.
  • Throughout the project a number of processes are implemented to ensure quality of the product, which includes peer review to verify accuracy. Reports are reviewed by a qualified peer prior to being submitted.
