Calgary, AB — FT Services has achieved a significant milestone by scoring 100% in a safety audit conducted by the Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA). The safety audit encompassed all of FT Services’ Alberta sites and its corporate office.

 

“Earlier this year we achieved more than six million work hours, lost-time injury free since start of operations in 2007,” said Andy Mackintosh, president and CEO. “The result of this audit supports this achievement through our robust safety systems and processes, as well as a commitment to a positive safety culture. It is encouraging to know that we have the foundations in place to continually improve our safety culture within FT Services.”

The ACSA is a non-profit organization funded and directed by industry. ACSA will recommend to Alberta Human Resources and Employment, Workplace Health & Safety the issuance of a Certificate of Recognition.
