Full Compliance

Burrard Inlet Rail complies with all applicable federal and provincial laws and regulations, including the Canada Labour Code, Part II Occupational Health and Safety (1985) and BC OHS (1998). All employees are fully trained in the latest safe work practices and only perform job tasks corresponding with their level of qualification.

Lead by Example

Safety is our first priority. We take care of our employees and always ensure they comply with safety regulations. Regular risk assessments and audits are performed to identify potential safety hazards, and procedures are revised accordingly to prevent accidents or injuries from occurring. Should an incident occur, we investigate thoroughly and immediately correct unsafe work conditions.

Education and Training

Our safety-focused culture is reinforced with ongoing education and training. We invest the time and resources to ensure our crews are trained and tested, and our equipment is well maintained and in good working order. Employees are proactive, informing each other of known hazards and taking action to control them. Our corporate safety manual is a comprehensive reference guide to safe work procedures.

Safety Culture

Accidents and incidents can be controlled through good management and active employee involvement. By educating employees about safety practices at work, and encouraging safety outside of the workplace, safety practices have become an integral part of our employees’ lives.
