Health and Safety at IPEX

Employees are our most valuable asset at IPEX – and protecting their health and safety is paramount. Our commitment to excellence means we operate our sites with accountability, reliability and integrity and strive for a goal of zero workplace-related injuries.

Across our sites, IPEX is committed to:

  • Providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment, with our line managers at the forefront of ensuring health and safety policies are implemented and carefully followed. 
  • Providing employees with the training and work systems needed to carry out their work safely, including requiring employees to report any unsafe or unhealthy work conditions or practices.
  • Complying with applicable health and safety laws and regulations as a minimum standard and going above and beyond — for example, requiring employees, as a condition of employment, to carry out their activities safely regardless of the perceived urgency or importance of the task at hand.
  • Continuously improving compliance to our health and safety standards and our overall health and safety performance by continuously measuring the effectiveness of our system.
