Occupational Health and Safety is our company’s first priority. We are committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for all our employees, subcontractors and the public.

J-AAR Excavating has an established Health and Safety Manager whose objective is to provide support in all aspects of health and safety related to field and administrative operations.


Ongoing training, communication and safety reviews are part of our comprehensive safety regime. Our employees have, over the years, participated in industry safety programs and have shared best practices with members of various construction associations. This participation and strong commitment at every level in our organization has allowed us to champion and positively influence the awareness and the critical importance of Health and Safety to the Canadian construction industry.


The John Aarts Group was awarded the coveted Canadian Construction Association’s National Safety Award for the best safety rating in the industry during a full five year period in 1990 for the achievement of a lost-time injury rate of one in 1.5 million man hours worked.

We value the health and well being of everyone within our community and we are proud of our track record - a low level of incidents/accidents and a safe, clean environment.
