We follow a Behavioral Based Safety program that is common in the petroleum industry. All personnel are trained to a minimum of L1 industrial first aid and have API Worksafe, confined space entry, POST, WHIMS, and dangerous goods handling tickets. We are a registered contractor with ComplyWorks and maintain general contractor and liability insurance. All work is performed under the guidance of a daily safe work permit and job safety analysis that is prepared at the start of each project and updated daily. Every day begins with a brief crew meeting to discuss safety considerations. We always work to local site rules.
Canadian Fuel Oil Polishing is committed to the safety and health of our employees and all others who enter onto property where we work. Safety is our first priority – before production; before quality; and certainly before profits.
We do not want anyone to take any safety shortcut to increase our profitability. There is no function we perform that will ever be so urgent or important that we cannot take the time to do it safely.
Our goal is zero accidents. Accomplishing this goal requires that management and supervisors will evaluate risks – eliminate them where practical, and provide appropriate equipment and training to affected workers to cope with those risks which remain. It also requires that every employee take personal responsibility to know the hazards of their jobs, to know the approved procedures to perform hazardous tasks and to use those procedures and appropriate safety equipment.
Adherence to our company’s safety standards and procedures is a condition of employment. Every person we employ is required to commit to working at all times in ways that will prevent harm to themselves, their fellow workers and the public. Employees must not hesitate to report unsafe practices or conditions. Managers and supervisors are expected to be vigilant in ensuring compliance with all aspects of our safety requirements.
