Changes to our Privacy Policy

The following Code of Conduct (“the Code”) is designed to preserve and promote a sense of integrity and credibility that has been the basis upon which our organization was developed. This Code applies to all employees (permanent full-time, hourly, fixed term contract, permanent part-time) and any third party service provider in face-to face contact with our clients.

The Code is organized into categories, as follows: 

Service
  • Always act with fairness, honesty, integrity and openness; respect the opinions of others and treat all with equality and dignity without regard to gender, race, colour, creed, ancestry, place of origin, political beliefs, religion, marital status, disability, age, or sexual orientation
  • Provide a positive and valued experience for those individuals and organizations working with PTAG in the provision of services
Accountability
  • Act with honesty and integrity and in accordance with any professional standards and / or governing laws and legislation that have application to the responsibilities you perform for or on behalf of PTAG
  • Comply with both the letter and the spirit of any training or orientation provided to you by PTAG in connection with your responsibilities
  • Take responsibility for your actions and decisions. Follow reporting lines to facilitate the effective resolution of problems. Ensure that you do not exceed the authority of your position
Conflict of Interest
  • Conflict of interest arises when a person participates in a decision about a matter (including any contract or arrangement of employment, leasing, sale or provision of goods and services) which may benefit or be seen to benefit that person because of his/her direct or indirect monetary or financial interests affected by or involved in that matter
  • Avoiding conflicts of interest goes a long way towards ensuring that we avoid behaviour that is unethical or that otherwise contravenes the Code. We must avoid any situation where our personal interest may conflict, or could be perceived to conflict, with the interests of PTAG or of a client or vendor of PTAG.

PTAG’s Health, Safety and Environmental Program

PTAG has a long-standing philosophy of taking pride in its practices to ensure the safety, health and well-being of its workers. This program serves to outline our commitment to this philosophy and provides guidance on the standards PTAG requires its workers to adhere to.

The goal of this program is to ensure all workers conduct themselves in a safe manner while in the workplace. It is each worker’s responsibility to read and understand the program, and to demonstrate a high degree of safety in each task assigned.

Workers will be given a copy of the PTAG Health, Safety and Environmental Program, and are responsible for ensuring they always have the most current version of the manual. They are also responsible for signing the “HSE Manual Acknowledgement Form” and returning it to the PTAG Contractor Services team.

PTAG management will take the following steps to ensure the plan is maintained:

  1. Review semi-annually or more frequently, if needed, to ensure all sections are up to date based on governmental and client standards.
  2. Ensure that applicable updates are distributed to our: (a) Workers and (b) Clients, as needed
PTAG reserves the right to make changes to this plan and will communicate the changes as needed.
