Elite Formwork is committed to providing an incident-free and healthy work environment for all employees. We continue to lead our industry by maintaining a comprehensive safety program and continually developing and implementing safe work systems, practices and procedures. Since 2003, we have maintained our Certificate of Recognition from the Alberta Construction Safety Association and currently employ several National Construction Safety Officers. COR is awarded to employers who develop health and safety programs that meet and maintain the established industry standard. Elite Formwork is also a voluntary member of the Partnerships in Injury Reduction (PIR) program in association with the Alberta Workers' Compensation Board.
We provide extensive in-house training to all our employees, including courses in Rigging, Fall Protection, WHMIS, and First Aid. Employees are encouraged to participate in external training programs through organizations such as SAIT, the Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA) and Merit Contractors Association, which enable them to take on increased responsibility within our organization. In 2014, we received the Willard Kirkpatrick award from the Alberta Merit Contractors Association for our outstanding commitment to a high level of employee training through the Merit College of Construction.
