OHSE Management Systems

We take pride in offering world-class products and services to our customers across Canada and Alaska. As an organization, being world-class applies to all aspects of our business including the implementation of our Occupational Health, Safety and Environment (OHSE) Management System.

Our OHSE Management System is built on a practical foundation of:
  • Policies
  • Procedures
  • Best Practices
  • Education
  • Training
  • Auditing
These are developed by our internal safety professionals with consultation and participation from operations personnel throughout all levels of the Company as well as our industry partners. We consider our OHSE Management System “evergreen” and actively pursue opportunities for improvement.

Safety Accreditations & Partnerships

We currently hold Certificate of Recognition (COR) in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The Certificate of Recognition (COR) program is a health and safety certification program designed to equip participants with the resources and skills to develop and maintain accredited, in-house safety management systems unique to their workplaces. Organizations who participate in the COR program are more likely to avoid liability and ensure due diligence. An essential component of the certification process is a comprehensive audit of the employer's health and safety management system. To qualify for a COR, the audit must be carried out by a qualified auditor, using an audit plan that is approved for Partnerships use and is accepted by a Certifying Partner. By implementing a combination of compulsory and elective courses, in addition to the safety audit, the COR program helps participants and their organizations understand occupational health and safety-related legislation as well as the safe workplace rights and responsibilities of workers and employers.

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.

SMS Equipment remanufactures major electrical components in our ISO 9001-2008 registered facilities in Port Coquitlam, BC and Acheson, AB locations.

WorkSafe Saskatchewan is a partnership between the Government of Saskatchewan and the WCB created to encourage positive safety cultures in Saskatchewan workplaces. Their mission is simple: zero injuries, zero deaths, zero suffering.

The Saskatoon and Regina branches have received a Certificate of Achievement from WCB Saskatchewan for recording no medical aids or LTIs (Lost Time Incident) during the 2013/2014 year.
