Compass Geomatics is committed to doing business in a safe and productive environment. The personal safety of our employees and our environmental impact is of paramount importance in all of our policies and procedures.
We believe all accidents are preventable and continually improve upon processes to achieve ZERO incidents.
Compass Geomatics maintains current Certificates of Recognition (COR) within Alberta, through certifying partner Alberta Association for Safety Partnerships. We are also in good standing with ISN world, Complyworks, along with Avetta.
Compass Geomatics field crews often work in remote areas. Our crews are provided with cellular phones and two-way radios, as well as SPOT personal satellite messenger (on site specific basis). Spot units allow crews to set waypoints to track their progress, as well as “check in” if in a poor cell service area or if working alone. These units also will notify management and emergency services in the event of an emergency providing GPS coordinates.
Our personnel are trained with up to date industry specific safety courses including:
- Quad and Snowmobile Safety
- Standard First Aid with CPR & AED
- Common Safety Orientation
- Bear Awareness
- CAGC Chainsaw/Faller Certification
- H2S Alive
- Line Locating and Ground Disturbance
- Numerous other industry related safety training
All field staff strictly adhere to any client specific safety orientations and site requirements.
