Leading the way

Contrary to traditional industry definitions, we approach safety in a completely unique manner. We are truly committed. Safety is part of our language and culture, and our management team is constantly leading by example.

Our programs focus on behavior-based safety where we train, encourage and reinforce two-way communication between our employees and management. We hear about specific experiences and document the information to improve our safety processes and program. Our passion to 'do better' makes us innovative and adaptive and enables us to quickly respond to new customer needs.

Our safety training includes courses such as job observation, hazard identification, leadership development and incident investigation. All of our HS&E efforts are carefully measured, documented and reviewed.

We believe that the same behaviours that lead to safety excellence also lead to quality excellence and productivity excellence. Safety excellence is pursued by creating and maintaining a common understanding of the steps, hazards and control procedures involved in completing a task; with the responsibility for creating a common understanding distributed equally amongst the entire group. Our safety excellence is pursued through:

  • Provision of appropriate and well maintained equipment
  • Provision of appropriate tools and supplies
  • Timely and task specific communication and direction
  • Thorough training through application of Field Level Risk Assessment tool
    • Identification/review of task execution steps
    • Identification/review of hazards/risks associated with task execution
    • Identification/review of procedures to eliminate/control hazards
  • Control of the workspace
    • Identification of hazards and organizational requirements through scheduled tours of the job site.
    • Use of Hazard ID tools in listing hazards and organizational requirements identified during "Walk-Arounds".
  • Team responsibility for successful communication
  • Responsible supervision
