Mission Zero

Mission Zero

Radium is dedicated to a zero incident, zero injuries, zero suffering and zero fatalities in a Mission to Zero initiative for 2016 and beyond. Radium’s management team is committed to creating a zero incident environment for all of our employees, subcontractors, visitors and contractors, free from recognizable and preventable hazards. This safety culture is based upon the concept that all incidents can be predicted and prevented.

Our safety culture is built on a solid foundation that all incidents can be prevented. Each employee, sub-contractor and anyone on a Radium job site must dedicate themselves to embrace Radium’s mission to zero statement and contribute to the safety culture.

In a mission zero incident environment, safety is valued FIRST as the most important activity from pre-job planning activities ranging from quality to productivity to fabrication through to completion.
