SAFETY

Techmation Electric & Controls Ltd.'s safety philosophy begins with our employees. Our employees are the most important aspect of our business and Techmation’s goal is to ensure they return home safely each and every day. We believe that all incidents are preventable and Techmation’s TRIF target is ZERO. By empowering all of our personnel (from our management to frontline supervision to our field techs) to actively participate in our safety programs this enables us to build a strong safety culture. We pride ourselves in providing a safe work environment, demonstrating safety leadership and promoting safety as our top priority.

We have obtained a COR Certification with the Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan Construction Safety Associations and we utilize their training services to augment our safety program and enhance our employee’s skills.
