Innovative HSE Programs
Talisman Program: Willbros Canada has a common currency of safety investment that is issued to our workforce: the Talisman coin. This coin acts as a visual and tactile aid to remind us how important safety is both on our worksites and at home.
Safety Recognition Program: Designed to acknowledge and promote proactive safety behavior. This program recognizes workers who play an active role in safety leadership, exemplify consistent safe behavior, and who go above and beyond their normal obligation to work safely.
Cognitive Safety Training: A psychology-based process that focuses on the personal component of the safety culture model. This program is designed to empower people to take control of their personal safety by becoming more effective within the systems they use.
Craft Safety Monitor Program: Involving our craft in behavior-based observations and worksite inspections to offer them a fresh perspective on work execution and identifying hazards. This program provides opportunities for our craft to partner with an operational supervisor or HSE professional and participate in observations and inspections as well as perform interventions or recognize acts of safety with their co-workers.
