West-Can Seal Coating Inc. is committed to a strong safety program that protects its staff, property and the public from incidents. Employees at every level, including management, are responsible and accountable for the company’s overall safety initiatives. Complete and active participation is required by everyone at all times, to achieve the safety excellence the company has grown to expect.
At West-Can we believe that our success is defined by our company’s culture, with safety being a vital part of our culture and daily routine. Over the past 25 years we have been able to develop a first class comprehensive safety management program that begins at the hiring process where all employees are required to undergo pre-employment substance and audiometric baseline testing. Upon successful completion, all employees go through an extensive orientation where they are provided training in: Construction Safety Training Systems (CSTS), Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG), Workplace Hazardous Material Information System (WHMIS), Fatigue Management, Traffic Control, Defensive Driving, and Log Book Training. Employees responsible for the operation of power mobile equipment or hand tools also receive in-house certification during the orientation process.
Through our extensive safety program, West-Can has been recognized by Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba’s Certificate of Recognition (C.O.R) safety programs. As well, we share industry accreditation through IS Networld, CanQual and ComplyWorks. By utilizing various industry safety standards, West-Can is able to continually monitor, review and improve our safety program, allowing our team to achieve our goal of an accident and injury free workplace.
