Considering Safety in the Welding Job Search

posted by Bros Welding    |   October 28, 2013 10:12

Are you in search of a welder position in Saskatchewan? There are many factors to consider as you start your job search and a significant one that is often overlooked is safety. There are a few questions to consider related to safety as you seek potential employers in your job search:

Does the employer have safety policies and procedures in place for all employees to follow?

Employers that are committed to the safety of their employees will have official safety policies and procedures in place and should have a manual available for employees to refer to at all times.

Is there an open door policy for reporting any incidences that may cause an unsafe work environment?

As an employee, you should not be afraid to notify your supervisor of incidences that may cause an unsafe work environment. An open-door policy should be promoted and practiced to ensure the safety of all workers.

Are workers provided with safety training?

Required safety training should be identified upon accepting a new position and ongoing training provided throughout employment, as needed.

Does the employer adhere to The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations?

In Saskatchewan, workplace health and safety is governed by The Occupational Health and Safety Act and The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. The Act and Regulations apply to employers, supervisors, workers, self-employed persons, contractors, suppliers and owners.

Can the employer prove their safety record through a global resource such as ISNetworld?

ISNetworld is a global resource for connecting corporations with safe, reliable contractor/suppliers from capital-intensive industries. This platform collects self-reported conformance information from contractors/suppliers and verifies its accuracy. Being a part of a network such as ISNetworld shows that the employer is concerned about safety and making their safety records available to other companies and corporations.

If you cannot find the answers to these questions on a potential employer’s websites then add them to your list of questions to ask in the in-person interview. Welding is a high-risk position and the answers to these questions can determine whether or not you can expect to make it home safe at the end of the day.
