WORKPLACE HEALTH & SAFETY

Where there is safety in power, likewise, there is power in safety.  Protecting one of our greatest assets, our employees, by investing in our health and safety program is a key component of our company philosophy and core values. Our crew leads begin each day with an on-site tailgate meeting with their team to identify potential hazards and discuss proper techniques and protocols relevant to the day's work at hand. Providing a safe working environment is fundamental as an employer. Every employee deserves a safe place to work which includes conscious responsibility for their own safety as well as the safety of those around them. Safety is a practice we work diligently to ingrain in order to create a culture where it becomes second nature. It's a team effort across all ranks and disciplines.
