Weir employees must be safety trained and qualified in their area of expertise. Weir Construction happily incurs the costs of safety as we believe it saves not only lives but helps us financially as well. If an employee needs to take a dangerous goods course then it will be done, a first aid course, a hydrogen sulfide course, a confined space course, etc. Whatever is reasonably justifiable to keep our people and the environment safe, will be done. Weir Construction has its Certificate of Recognition or what it more commonly known as its “COR Certification” as recognized by the Alberta Construction Safety Association. Our employees also have First Aid; WHMIS; Ground Disturbance: H2S; Transportation of Dangerous Goods tickets and hearing tests yearly.
