Work Safe Alberta 2008 Best Performer Award

Arcis was selected for the Work Safe Alberta 2008 Best Performer Award for exceptional performance in workplace health & safety.

Of Alberta's 160,000 employers, approximately 700 earned this award. Arcis met the following criteria:

  • Have no disabling injuries for 60 person years of employment and have no more than one disabling injury per each additional 60 person years of employment. For example: an employer would need to have a minimum of 60 + 60 = 120 person years of employment before they could have a single disabling injury and still be considered for an award
  • Have no outstanding compliance orders under Alberta's Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Legislation.
  • Have no violations of the OHS Act in connection with any incident investigated by Alberta Employment, Immigration and Industry during the past two years.
  • No workplace related fatalities in the previous three years.
