All Park Derochie Employees should be proud of their excellent safety record - we have now reached our goal of working over 1,000,000 hours with 0 LTA's.
Congratulations on a job well done!
At Park Derochie "Safety is Everyone's Responsibility"!
One of our Park Derochie Inc. Tank crews had a nice surprise last week after realizing they held a Lotto Max ticket worth $1,000,000.
The ten person Sunday Creek crew won the drawing on June 5th adding a little extra cushion to their bank accounts.
Congratulations to Neil, Christian, Dalton, Nichole, Tracey, Mark, Rueben, Yannick, Deidre and John.
It is a common understanding that a safe workplace begins with proper housekeeping. Effective housekeeping helps to eliminate workplace hazards and maintains order within our work area. Proper housekeeping has been proven to decrease workplace injuries, boost worker moral and improve overall productivity.

As of September 30th, Park Derochie Inc. has incurred 853,212 employee hours in 2016. Already surpassing our previous best statistics in 2011 when 819,802 employee hours were worked.
Park Derochie continues to show its dedication to providing "Best in Class" services while ensuring a safe and healthy work environment for its employees and remains top of the class in its WCB statistics.
While these safety statistics are impressive and all Park Derochie employees deserve recognition for a job well done, we will carry our safety awareness forward, maintaining our vigilance towards our personal safety.
Fall is coming quick and it is time to pay extra attention while driving – especially at dusk and dawn. Moose are going to be starting to rut (the period of time when certain ungulates mate – e.g. moose, deer, elk) soon and will be even more unpredictable than usual. If you see a vehicle stopped on or near the highway, the driver may have spotted a moose, so be cautious. Avoid driving at night if possible, and if you must drive, slow down. Moose are extremely difficult to see at night. Ensure that the headlights on your vehicle are working and kept clean, along with the windshield. Scan both sides of the highway with your lights on high beam unless overtaking other traffic, and pay attention to warning signs.
As Park Derochie and many other companies welcome their employees back from the holiday break this week it is important to realize how difficult it can be to “get back into the work groove.”
As we all shift back to our regular work routine here are a few steps to begin the 2017 year with safety on our mind?
This is a short list of items to consider when returning for the 2017 calendar year.
What additional safety items should be considered when returning to work from an extended break?
