On November 22, Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak (MKO) in collaboration with Live Different and other partners held a youth presentation at the Southeast Collegiate in Winnipeg to announce the Youth Empowerment Ice Road Tour (YEIRT). YEIRT is a project delivered by Live Different, a non-profit organization inspiring youth to live lives of compassion and service. In January, the organization will travel to 13 remote and isolated First Nations in northern Manitoba to deliver life altering programming to Indigenous youth. INAC is supporting the project by providing $107,000 in funding under the New Paths for Education program.

Any company can proclaim a commitment to providing a safe work environment for their employees and contractors. At DMS, we put verifiable actions behind our words.We take the necessary and precautionary procedures to ensure quality assurance, and as mentioned in a previous blog, to ensure the project is completed right the first time.

Our participation in COR and ISNetworld are just two examples of many, of the ways we demonstrate our commitment to safety. AJP Engineering is a sister company and our engineers have to be registered and licensed professionals. CQI Inspections is also a sister company and our inspectors have specialized training to ensure that regulatory requirements and related standards are met.

Through ISN, our company safety policies and reporting are kept up to date and available for review by our clients. In addition to the online database, ISN’s Review and Verification Services provide expert evaluation of our company’s health and safety records to verify their accuracy and validity. The health and safety records of our company are something we are proud of. We don’t hesitate to make them available for review through ISNetwork.

The Construction Safety Association of Manitoba (CSAM) provides oversight to the Certificate of Recognition program or COR. DMS has fulfilled all the requirements to receive and maintain their COR Certificate and Letter of Good Standing. This achievement requires ongoing audits of our safety program. These audits assure that the program we have outlined in our safety manual is also being implemented and enforced. For a full review of what it means to be COR Certified, you can visit their website at www.constructionsafety.ca/

Safety isn’t just something we talk about at DMS; it is a big part of who we are.

Breakdowns won’t happen everyday but they will occur.  The next time you have something breakdown, consider using the DMS Industrial Constructors maintenance services.

When something breaks down your in-house maintenance guys will get it up and running as fast as they can, right?

Of course they will, but the true cost of a breakdown is not just the price of the repair, or even the lost productivity.  Frequent breakdowns give your employees and customers the idea that your company “just doesn’t care” about important things, like investing in preventive maintenance.  This frustration can eat away at the bottom line faster than most people realize.

At DMS, we are dedicated to protecting the safety and well-being of all, by conducting every aspect of our business in a safe manner, consistent with our corporate values.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of the company. The efforts of the DMS, and the focus on safety during our shutdown made this one of the smoothest shutdowns I’ve experienced here, or at my previous employers. From the pre-shutdown preparation efforts (contractor orientations, outlining the Griffin expectation), right through day to day work and closing up the projects I cannot think of a single thing that I would rather you or your people had done differently.

Nathan Rasmussen, Environmental, Safety, and Health Supervisor, Griffin Wheel Company – Winnipeg

We continually strive to adopt a proactive approach to safety by incorporating best practices and constant improvement through both internal measurement and external benchmarking.

DMS is dedicated to protecting and preserving the environment in which we operate by conducting all aspects of our business in an environmentally responsible manner- we are very proud of our safety achievements.

As members of IS Networld and National COR Standards, we are continually striving to refine and improve upon our success.
