Borea Construction #1 in Canada in renewable energy construction

Safety before profits

At Borea, because we care deeply for each and every employee, we’ve developed a rigorous and uncompromising OH&S policy.

We stop at nothing to make sure our teams return home safely every single day.

Changing Attitudes
Towards Safety

(C.A.T.S.): Borea’s behaviour-based safety program

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.

Results
for our clients

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.

Efforts that
make a difference

Borea Construction won the Gestion Santé-sécurité du travail prize at the 74th edition of the QRBHCA conference for its efforts in promoting health and safety during the construction of the Mont Sainte-Marguerite wind park in Beauce! We stood out with the safety measures that were put in place to control the risks of excavation and trench collapse, 3 metres and higher falls, the release of asbestos dust, and electrical-related dangers. In 2017, there were 400 workers and 60 subcontractors on the project.
