Toronto Hydro CR Report 2016

OUR PEOPLE Mechanisms for monitoring, reporting and taking corrective action In order to maintain the EHSMS, respond to audits and identify and implement opportunities for improvement, Toronto Hydro uses a variety of tools that require the commitment from all staff, frontline to senior leaders and executives. This includes the Corporation’s Board of Directors, as the Board’s Human Resources and Environment Committee reviews occupational safety performance and issues on a quarterly basis. Below are some examples of processes that support the EHSMS: Audits and inspections Periodic audits are conducted to ensure compliance and conformance with requirements, and verify that adequate controls are in place to mitigate identified risks. Proactive inspections of employees and work areas are conducted by leaders throughout the organization. These inspections are a leading indicator and allow for identification and correction of potentially harmful situations prior to an incident occurring. The following graph illustrates the number of proactive safety inspections Toronto Hydro leadership has completed since 2010 Incident investigations Investigations into near misses, occupational injuries and illness, motor vehicle accidents and environmental spills are conducted across the organization to determine root causes and implement permanent, corrective actions Performance indicators A variety of leading and lagging performance indicators that gauge the effectiveness of the EHSMS are tracked and reported on to provide information to leaders to facilitate the implementation of corrective or preventive measures # of Inspections Completed Planned # of Inspections 58 TORONTO HYDRO I 2016 CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY REPORT 17,885 PROACTIVE SAFETY INSPECTIONS 13,606 2010 16,553 2011 14,013 2012 16,774 2013 17,802 16,724 2014 2015 2016
