SMS Equipment participates in the “Partnerships in Injury Reduction” (PIR) program as established by the Government of Alberta, Employment, Immigration and Industry.
First established in 1989, Partnerships in Injury Reduction was created with the belief that:
- When employers and workers build effective health and safety management systems in their workplaces, the human and financial costs of workplace injuries and illness will be reduced;
- More can be achieved by working together than by working alone;
- And corporate leaders in the province are willing to take a proactive role in creating a climate where employers and employees work together to ensure a healthier and safer work culture, ultimately leading to greater industry self-reliance and less Government intervention.
