Medical monitoring programs are recommended for workers who are at risk of exposure to potential health hazards. This is coupled with ongoing industrial hygiene sampling to proactively measure workplace exposures and provide exposure control solutions.
Our integrated disability management program involves early intervention to positively alter the course of medical absence due to an illness or injury, for both occupational and non-occupational injuries and illnesses. The process is overseen by a cross-functional group of professionals, including:
This group works together with the supervisor and employee to facilitate early, safe and productive return to work.
Promoting wellness and healthy lifestyles are another part of Suncor’s safety commitment to our employees and contractors. We have implemented various programs that are tailored to specific business needs and environments. Initiatives, such as our annual influenza vaccination program and ergonomics workshops, form an important part of this ongoing effort.

Suncor employees and their families can access the Employee and Family Assistance Program at any time. This comprehensive program provides confidential, professional assistance to help employees and their families resolve problems that affect their personal lives and, in some cases, their professional lives.
Our focus on health and safety also extends to the products we manufacture and purchase. Suncor uses the product safety information to communicate safety, health and regulatory information for all our products. This information enables our customers to handle our products safely and also meets regulatory requirements. Purchased chemical products undergo a rigorous approval process to ensure the environment, health and safety aspects are incorporated within our facilities before the product is brought on site.
