Code of Ethical Conduct and Whistleblower Policy

Corix’s business success is based on integrity. To that end, all our employees are guided by a Code of Ethical Conduct and Whistleblower Policy. This Policy sets out principles and standards based on the following objectives:

  • Do what is right
  • Respect the rights of others
  • Obey the law
  • Maintain the integrity and confidentiality of information
  • Avoid conflicts of interest
  • Conduct oneself appropriately

It doesn't matter where employees work or what they do, everyone is responsible for exercising good judgement. This Policy helps employees when they find themselves in a situation where doing the right thing might not be obvious. While the Policy cannot answer all potential questions, it directs employees where to go for guidance and assistance.

Health, Safety, and Environment Policy

It is the policy of Corix to provide for the continuous development and implementation of an ongoing safety program that promotes a healthy and safe work environment for all employees. As one of Corix’ Core Values, safety is our highest priority. Our objective is to maintain a safe and productive work environment, and to minimize the number of injuries, illnesses, and damage to property. This policy is put into action through the implementation of our Safety Program.

Corix’s commitment to a safe workplace

At Corix, we are committed to conducting business in a safe and environmentally responsible manner by providing a safe and healthy working environment for all employees in the workplace. With this in mind, health, safety, and the environment is an integral part of the way we conduct and manage our business.

Our commitment is to provide a safe and healthy work environment for all employees, contractors and other parties sharing or using our worksites. To do this, Corix clearly outlines and implements expectations regarding health and safety performance, participation and management through our Safety Program.

Corix is committed to complying with all federal, state, provincial and local regulations while making every reasonable effort to identify and control exposures in our operations that can injure people, or damage property or equipment. Every employee has the right to work in a safe and healthy work environment.

Occupational Health and Safety Commitments

To meet our commitment to providing a safe and healthy work environment Corix will:

  • Focus on the prevention of injuries and illness.
  • Provide our employees with the training, guidance and resources necessary to meet their safety responsibilities.
  • Consult and collaborate with our employees, contractors and other stakeholders on safety matters.
  • Comply with all relevant legislation, regulations, industry practices and other requirements.
  • Continually improve safety performance, and track and report progress in a timely manner. 

The Corix Safety Program is a tool which is designed to help management and workers achieve a workplace free of injuries and unsafe practices. It sets out each person’s specific obligations and also demands adherence to the Safety Program. We believe that committing to these obligations and demands of the Safety Program is a key component of protecting our employees from workplace hazards.

Adherence to workplace safety rules is a condition of employment for all employees and failure to follow safety rules will result in disciplinary action up to and including termination. No operation is so important that it must be done in a manner that permits undue hazard to personnel, the public, or property. All employees will be held accountable for their responsibilities. All instances of non-compliance with this policy shall be reported to the Health, Safety, and Environment Department. The information in this policy does not take precedence over applicable legislation and regulations. It is the goal of this safety program to ensure that everyone leaves work in the same or even better condition in which they arrived.
