Our Policies

Safety Policy

Frontier Transport Ltd. is committed to a strong health and safety program that protects our employees, suppliers, clients, property, the environment, and the public from incidents.

It is our belief that every employee is entitled to a safe work environment, free from any foreseeable hazards that may result in property damage incidents or personal injury or illness.

In fulfilling this commitment to protect both people and property, we will provide and maintain a safe and healthy work environment. Management supports the program’s success by providing the necessary resources including proper safety equipment, safety training and safe work procedures.

Our health and safety management system will be developed in accordance with industry standards and best practices and will meet or exceed federal, provincial and municipal legislative requirements.

Employees at every level, including management, supervisors and workings are all equally responsible and accountable for the company’s overall safety initiatives.
Complete and active participation by everyone, every day, in every job is necessary for the safety excellence the company expects.

Our objective is an injury and incident free workplace. We can accomplish our goal through continuous safety and loss control effort and dedicated teamwork.

Drug And Alcohol Policy

Inappropriate use of alcohol and drugs can have adverse effects on job performance, health of employees and the safety of the individual and his/hers co-workers.

Employees are expected to behave in an appropriate manner and perform their duties responsibly at all times. An employee, contractor or visitor may not use, possess or offer for sale alcohol or illicit drugs while at the workplace or while engaged in company business.

An employee is not in violation of this guideline if:

  • The employee is using prescription or non-prescription drug for its intended purpose and in the manner directed by the employee’s physician, pharmacist or health care professional.
  • The use of prescription or non-prescription drug does not adversely affect the employee’s ability to safely perform his/her duties.
  • The employee drinks alcohol during approved department or company social functions. The employee is encouraged to drink in a responsible manner and assumes full liability for any actions/conduct arising from the consumption of alcohol.

Violation of the guideline is considered serious and will result in corrective action. The appropriate discipline depends of the nature of the violation, the existence of prior violations and/or discipline and the circumstances surrounding the situation. Some violations are considered sufficiently serious that termination may be warranted on the first occurrence, while other violations may result in progressive corrective action pending the results of an investigation.

If the employee has a substance abuse or substance dependency problem, the company is committed to assisting the employee with appropriate substance abuse professionals as needed. Should the employee be unwilling to correct his/her problem and repeated incidents of substance abuse occur the employee may be subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment.

If an employee must make an emergency call (911), the vehicle should first be parked in a safe location.

Employees are responsible for payment of penalties in the event a citation is issued.
