With the arrival of nicer weather, the spring 2023 construction season is now in full swing. There are many municipal works and private projects being completed in Port Hope this year, in addition to active Port Hope Area Initiative (PHAI) work.
One way to easily identify if the work being done is PHAI-related is to look for posted signage. Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) requires that all project contractors have visible signage on and near PHAI sites. Additionally, all PHAI trucks are easily identified by attached signs. You can also identify PHAI contractors by the personal protective equipment that is worn to complete their duties. Personal protective equipment such as hard hats and high visible clothing is part of CNL safety culture and is required at all PHAI sites.
If a member of the public approaches a contractor working on the PHAI they will be referred to the CNL Port Hope public office for information. Feel free to visit our website (phai.ca) to get public notifications and find information about active project work sites in the community. Residents and visitors can also connect with the CNL public office if they have questions about work being completed. The CNL Port Hope office, is open to public drop-ins Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is located at 25 Henderson St. Port Hope.
Safety of the residents, the wider community and the environment remain priorities for CNL. Residents are reminded to obey all posted signage and continue to work together for a cleaner environment.
