Most Improved Safety Large Contractor Award in 2015
In 2015, the Fort McKay Group of Companies received recognition for Most Improved – Large Company at Syncrude’s annual safety awards. Jim Carbery, former CEO of the Fort McKay Group of Companies, credits this award to the implementation of the Loss Prevention System (LPS), a system that uses behaviour-based tools and management techniques to prevent or reduce losses.
“We put a lot of focus on safety in the past year because we needed to improve, not just at Syncrude but other sites,” says Jim. “We looked at every aspect of our operations from administration to the field and the results to date have been excellent.”
Employees and subsidiary companies are currently being trained in LPS. Transparency and communication with suppliers and clients is a big part of the improvement.
"Our people believe in the system and we’re prepared to put the time and effort into implementing it across the board,” says Jim.
