At Metro Infrastructure, quality is more than a process; it’s an attitude from top to bottom. Throughout the entire organization and in every phase of operation, Metro personnel are trained to check specifications, inspect, measure, calibrate and function test every piece of equipment before it goes in the hole and nothing is taken for granted. Whether components are new or under repair, qualified service technicians put them through the same battery of tests and visual inspections. Operators in the field re-test every tool to ensure nothing was damaged in transit. Service records and QA reports are available upon request for any piece of equipment.

Metro Infrastructure is committed to protecting and promoting the health and safety of our employees, contractors and the public.

Safety is an integral part of our operations; therefore, safety standards have been developed that meet, or exceed, those of our clients and all governing regulations. Much like our philosophy of incident prevention to avoid incidents that could cause bodily harm or equipment damage, it is also our policy to prevent damage and minimize environmental impact as much as possible, given the nature of our operations.

It is our belief that loss can best be controlled through active employee involvement at all levels of the organization. Every Metro staff member and field engineer is focused on the responsibility for loss prevention and meeting this responsibility by performing their job safely, in accordance with established procedures, company values, and guiding principles. Metro Infrastructure field engineers and others on customer work sites adhere to the customer’s safety rules, following safe work practices, wearing personal protective equipment, participating in safety training programs and informing supervisors of any unsafe work conditions. Metro is also staffed with a certified Safety Manager and we are working towards COR certification.

We aim to contribute towards environmental improvement and sustainable development by using best practice and innovation to minimize environmental impacts. Environmental impacts are assessed at every stage of the business process in consultation with organizations working on behalf of Metro Infrastructure Inc. including designers, contractors etc. to develop agreed solutions that are sympathetic to the environment and community. Metro Infrastructure Inc. plays an active role in supporting and encouraging contractors in reducing their environmental impacts.

An environmental action plan seeking continual improvement is produced on an annual basis setting out specific objectives, targets and implementation steps, with the progress routinely monitored, reviewed and reported to management.

The policy relies on these environmental principles:

  • Managers will demonstrate the leadership and commitment necessary to foster a culture of environmental responsibility
  • Minimize and where possible, eliminate impacts on the surrounding social and natural environment
  • All employees, contractors and operators have a responsibility to protect the environment and to prevent pollution
  • All staff will be provided with the knowledge, awareness and resources required to meet their environmental responsibilities
  • Operations, decisions, plans and actions will be conducted in accordance with this policy

This policy covers both the construction work as well as general office procedures:

  • Comply with, and endeavor to exceed, the requirements of all environmental legislation, codes and guidelines

  • Establish periodic reviews of environmental impacts associated with company activities
  • Adopt best practice, set targets, monitor and continuously improve environmental performance
  • Identify and implement a continuous program of measure to minimize identified environmental impacts
  • Involve all employees in development and implementation of our environmental action plan
  • Minimize construction waste through re-use and recycling to reduce the amount of materials being disposed of in land-fill sites and safely dispose of any other types of waste

General office procedure commitments to focus on include reducing consumption of resources by:

  • Use of e-mail for all correspondence, where possible
  • Double sided printing, reuse of scrap paper and segregation of paper waste for recycling
  • Conserve, reuse and recycle (e.g. printer toner and ink cartridges)
