Health & Safety

Safety is more than policies, procedures & stats – it’s a mindset that shapes our decisions every day. As leaders in our industry, we continually drive active engagement, training & continuous improvement.


We do it safely, or not at all.

Fraction is committed to cultivating a culture where everyone within the organization knows that their voice matters; we all strive for continual improvement. Everyone is encouraged to contribute their unique abilities, and help to elevate our work environment.

Management, field staff, and contract employees are all actively engaged in our Joint Occupational Health and Safety program, with representatives working across our geographical regions and bases. It is our duty to create a safe work environment for our people and communities.

Where will we find you when not at work? Spending time with family, working on my car (now that the 10-year resto project is complete, the work is more on detailing), and watching as many CFL games as possible!
