Safety/Insurance Cost Reduction
Our Client's Words:
"Dave took our total recordable on-site vehicle incidents from well over a dozen to 0 in its first year. The direct repair savings exceeded $50,000, however, the indirect savings due to fewer investigations lost productivity, and credibility with clients would far exceed $250,000. This trend brought our total recordable incident frequency (TRIF) well below industry standards which have given us an advantage over our direct peers in the challenging marketplace that is Alberta’s current oil industry. We have enjoyed a stable workload during these hard economic times and are seeing future opportunities still coming forward. We attribute this to better efficiencies and high productivity that programs like these create".
