As the end of the year approaches we are taking some time to reflect on such a memorable year. We truly appreciate all of you for being a part of that. We look forward to what the new year holds. Thank you and wishing you all the joys of the season and the happiest of years to come. From our family here at ABCS to yours… Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Who says safety doesn’t pay? Look at the smile on these faces. We would just like to give a shout out to Bill Greber, the winner of our safety contest. Thank you for being an avid follower of Alberta BC Safety. Don’t worry if you missed out on this contest, there will be many more to thank all our followers. It’s people like all of you who make safety a part of your everyday lives that will help ensure, we all get home safely to enjoy the benefits of a hard days work. So stay tuned!
Sometimes as trades people we don’t know how good we have it. We complain about all our PPE, huffing and puffing while we gear on in the mornings, but just think; we could be required to wear high heeled shoes. Could you imagine working any job wearing stilettos? As of January 1, 2019 OHS states, employers will no longer be allowed to require a worker wear any footwear that could pose a risk to their health and safety. Can you believe this is just happening in 2019? Did you know that high heels can put the worker at a higher risk of a slew of hazards such as, slips, trips, falls, cuts, crushing, puncture, sprains, breaks, chance for MIS’s (musculoskeletal injuries) and many more. Does that list sound familiar? That’s because that is everything your clunky work boots protect you from. So next time you feel like complaining about your PPE, just think of all the hard working women, putting in their hours on stilts at risk for hazards you don’t even have to think about anymore. And ladies… welcome to the wonderful world of safety shoes… they may not be the prettiest, but your feet and back will love you for it!
Thank you to everyone who participated in our safety contest. When you choose safety you win a lot more than hockey tickets.

I have Pm’d you, please get in contact with us as soon as possible. Also a quick shout out to my little one who did the background commentary, LOL.
