Health, Safety, and Environment

Ensuring that our sites are safe, healthy, and environmentally responsible places to work is a matter of the highest importance to all of us at Aquicon. It’s part of our legal and moral obligation to employees, contractors, and the general public.

Aquicon’s dedicated health and safety team are the first line of defense against workplace accidents and injuries. They create and enforce our health, safety and environmental policies and are responsible for making sure we meet or exceed all legal health and safety requirements.

Aquicon is proud to announce that we have been officially designated as a COR™ certified general contractor. This is an important milestone for us and affirms our commitment to ensuring a safe and secure worksite for our employees, project partners, and general public. COR™ is a certification issued by the Canadian Infrastructure Health & Safety Association (IHSA) that recognizes excellence in health and safety management.


The Aquicon Construction leadership team - our team in action.


Aquicon started out as a family business, and while the team is much larger than it once was, we work hard to maintain a company structure where knowledge is shared and nobody is too important to be contactable.
