At Summit, safety is our number one priority.
We’re one of the few hydrovac companies with a safety program and record that qualifies us to work in the Esso Strathcona Refinery, a site notorious for stringent safety requirements.
We strive for the highest safety standards for our operators, the public, as well as the environment.
What sets us apart?
We’re experienced with working in refineries, near power lines, in residential neighbourhoods, on commercial sites, laying pipelines in the wilderness, and working in confined spaces. We’re ticketed in all the leading industry certifications, such as H2S, Confined Space, Fall Arrest, and TDG.
Safety of the public is just as important as the safety of our staff. We often work in residential areas. We make these jobs minimally invasive to residents and ensure signs and barricades are in place before the job starts.
Working Near Power Lines
We have a wealth of experience working near high-voltage power lines, near low hanging lines, and in power plants.
We know how to identify and mitigate the risks. We keep our distance. We’re also Fortis certified so we know how to work with the power lines on your job site.
We follow local and provincial regulations when safely disposing of waste liquids. Occasionally we remove slurry which may be contaminated, in which case we dispose of it at specially designated waste processing sites located throughout the city and province.
Our company culture of safety has earned us a reputation among our clients as a company they can count on to have zero incidents and zero downtime.
