IPAC Services Puts Mind on Task to Reduce Employee Injuries

GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB, September 26, 2018:  IPAC Services Corporation will launch a new initiative on October 23rd, 2018 that is expected to reduce injuries in the workplace, at home and on the road.  This new program will focus on teaching staff members techniques to help them keep their eyes and mind on task.

Transport Canada has reported that a significant percentage of vehicle crashes result from distracted driving—eyes or mind not on task.  Some experts believe that eyes or mind not on task are contributing factors in a majority of all serious workplace injuries.

“We are extremely excited about the SafeStart initiative,” said Ron Ward, the company’s President & CEO.  “This program was selected by our management team because other organizations which have implemented it have typically seen a 30 to 70 percent reduction in injuries.  We felt our employees would embrace the program, and it would help us protect our team members—not only on the job but off the job as well.”

IPAC Services Corporation is a leading provider of construction and maintenance services to the oil and gas and other heavy industrial sectors of western Canada.  Our regional offices in Grande Prairie, AB and Fort St. John, BC, provide a full line of services to our clients.  These services include facility and mechanical construction, pipeline integrity, crew truck maintenance, civil work, module manufacturing, piping and structural fabrication, scaffolding, insulation and abrasive blasting and coating.

IPAC’s continuous improvement program looks for ways to better our performance, benefit our employees and support the communities we work in.  We feel the SafeStart initiative will bridge and prove valuable in all these areas.  We look forward to sharing the strategies we learn with our staff, friends and families alike.

The SafeStart program was created by Larry Wilson, an internationally known thought leader on injury prevention, and is published by Electrolab Training Systems. Check out their website: https://safestart.com/
