Bird operates at strict safety standards and follows rigorous health and safety systems - this is part of our culture and our most important value. We are committed to fostering a culture of caring for the well-being of all personnel that work on its projects. Collectively these cornerstones form a culture that send people home every day healthy and injury free.

Ensuring that all employees leave the workplace every day just as healthy and safe as when they arrived is a shared commitment. By working collaboratively with employees and trade partners to achieve this, Bird minimizes risk and creates the appropriate conditions for the safe execution of construction activity, on-time, on-budget, and to each client’s satisfaction. Bird believes this shared commitment is critical to its overall success.

Bird’s focus on safety is defined by three strategic HS&E pillars – engagement, culture, and effective safeguards. Each of these pillars anchors and directs overall efforts towards establishing sustainable HS&E systems and results, fostering a leadership team that cares, developing and retaining an engaged workforce, and providing support through robust controls that prevent loss.

Bird is a proud member of the Canadian Construction Safety Council (CCSC). The Council was formed in early 2023 with twelve founding members: Aecon, Bird, Dragados, EBC, EllisDon, Graham, Kiewit, Ledcor, Pennecon, PCL, Pomerleau, and AtkinsRÈalis (formerly SNC-Lavalin). This group of companies represents over 145,000 workers, 185 million person-hours, and over $25 billion in revenue annually. The collective mission of the Council is to be a force for positive change in the construction industry in Canada, by leveraging the collective safety capacity of the membership to foster improved performance. The key priority and focus area defined by the CCSC is the alignment of larger general contractors around HSE high risk standards.
