Health & Safety

Encore Metals is committed to ensure our place as an industry leader in health and safety management. Our goal is to have no accident, injury or ill health to employees, contractors, or visitors to our premises. Our proprietary “Safe Points” safety management software ensures thorough attention to all elements of our health and safety program and drives our success in employee participation and compliance.

Employee engagement and participation is encouraged with our “Safe Points” Incentive Program. Employees are awarded incentives for reporting substandard conditions, near misses, participating in workplace inspections, attending safety meetings and for making suggestions that improve our safety program. Incidents and potential issues are investigated thoroughly, well documented, and lessons learned are shared with other locations so that we can collectively work towards making our work places safer for everyone. Continuous improvement in our program is a vital element which drives our efforts.

Encore Metals locations in Alberta are COR certified through Partners in Injury Reduction and we have implemented the same program requirements and expectations at all of our locations. At Encore Metals, safety is our top priority and we believe that the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees is the foundation of our success.
