C.A.T.S was developed by Borea’s parent company Blattner Energy, specifically for the renewable energy construction field. Observation processes developed by a purpose-built committee of field supervisors and foremen enabled Blattner to determine the predominant safe and at-risk behaviours on construction sites. There are observers on every site who, as they lookout for workers, reinforce safe behaviours and request the correction of at-risk behaviours by working with them to find a safer solution. Borea has benefited from this development and employs the same approach on its sites. The strength of the C.A.T.S. program is that it seeks to prevent accidents and incidents before they occur.
Daily and weekly safety meetings, and safety committee meetings are enhanced by an average of 200 one-on-one safety meetings per month, and fuelled by our C.A.T.S. program. Implemented in 2013, the program has been so effective that Borea’s key performance indicators point to significant decreases in accidents and lost-time incidents. Thanks to C.A.T.S., we can guarantee industry-leading safe workplaces for our employees and our clients.
