You often hear the words “safety first” – but we actually believe it, and build the concept into every part of our standards and operations. Safety first takes place at CAMACC headquarters, and at every jobsite where we work.
Our safety first philosophy: Nobody Gets Hurt
Whether the work is being done by a CAMACC employee or a contractor, there is no task so important that it overrides the need for it to be done safely. The Petroleum Orientation Safety Training (POST) program describes our philosophy best: "Nobody Gets Hurt."
“Nobody Gets Hurt” means we do not tolerate people getting hurt. Not anybody, not anytime. To achieve this, we require certain safety minimums of everyone. CAMACC’s safety minimums are based on best practice taken from across the country – we look at the maximum safety limits from each jurisdiction, and bring them home to make them our safety minimums. Our minimum standards are tough – so Nobody Gets Hurt.
Let’s talk safety!

On site safety
We’re committed to safety on and off your site. CAMACC staff attend jobsite safety meetings when working at your locations, making sure that we are aware of all safety requirements.
On site safety first means that we always engage in intelligent risk management, where we identify, assess and mitigate risk through action:
- Identify all the hazards that could occur as a result of the planned work
- Assess those hazards to determine which could easily result in an unfavorable outcome
- Mitigate or prevent those outcomes from happening through deliberate action before the work is started
Managing higher risk work requires a more formal and documented risk management process. This process is referred to as Job Safety Analysis (JSA), and formally assesses what work is planned, step by step; hazards that each step creates; and how the worker will prevent the possible harmful/unfavorable outcome from happening). As a formal process, the JSA is
- Discussed with everyone in the work crew involved in the work
- Reviewed by the site supervisor to ensure that the appropriate level of risk management is brought to the task
JSAs need to consider site, activity, current environment and crew issues. A change in any of these parameters could introduce a new risk, so JSAs require review when things change. A JSA is always be tailored to the specific site conditions, by the work crew immediately before the activity is started and renewed on a daily basis.
Our commitment to safety keeps our workforce and your staff and customers protected from injury for the duration of the project.
