Health, Safety & Environment

Propak’s Safety Department’s mandate is to instill a culture of safety and prevention of injury; ensure prime contractor responsibilities are met; keep policies and procedures ahead of legislative changes; administer claims management and liability risk management; and maintain compliance with our clients’ safety requirements. Propak is committed to a successful Safety Management Program that strives to protect our employees, property, customers, contractors and the public with the goal of achieving zero accidents or injuries.

Propak upholds and promotes the responsibilities and accountabilities it has to legislative bodies such as OHS (Occupational Health & Safety), WCB (Workers’ Compensation Board) and Alberta Transportation. We maintain these high standards for all of our employees and expect that these standards are met by employees of other companies when they work on Propak sites. We expect our employees to maintain these standards on Propak sites, in our office locations and at client worksites.

Safety & Environment in Facility Design

Safety and environment in facility design are important aspects which are considered throughout the engineering and design process. They are assured through a series of formal design review sessions.

P&ID and 3D model review sessions are conducted with the client at key project stages reviewing aspects of safety, operability, constructability and maintainability.

HAZOP / LOPA sessions are performed evaluating potential process hazards and safeguards utilizing formalized methodologies. Facility designs are analyzed to ensure sufficient, effective and independent personnel safety and environmental protection measures are in place.


Propak’s facilities are designed and constructed in accordance with applicable Statutory Requirements, Canadian Codes and Standards, and applicable Propak / Client Specifications, Standards and Operating Procedures.

Propak’s projects are executed in full compliance with environmental and jurisdictional regulatory standards, guidelines, directives and governmental acts.
