    Pipeline Debate: A Bit of Political Irony.

    Alberta Pipeline Debate

    While the debate rages in Canada over pipelines a little more than 60 years ago a pipeline running from Alberta to Montreal was quite a contentious issue. It ended up bringing down the then Liberal government of the day. To be fair the issue then was more to do with ownership than environmental concerns. Some […]


    Alberta Winter 2016 – 2017 Predictions

    Alberta Weather Prections

    It’s August here in Alberta. After suffering through a dry, warmish, winter there were times during July that rescue boats were seen on a major freeway in Edmonton. The ground is saturated with all the rain in recent weeks. With one of the strongest El Nino events behind us we welcome La Nina. Predictions for […]


    To Our Friends & Fellow Albertans Affected by the Alberta wildfires in FT McMurray & Elsewhere.

    Being in business for over 30 years and living in Alberta for about 35 years we have all overcome many challenges. I lived through the tornado in 1987, the worst in Canadian history. I was driving home, at the time, north on highway 2 from Calgary, watching as the tornado was travelling north heading directly […]


    Global Warming?

    Every argument has a counter argument. Some positions are correct, some are incorrect, and some are just muddled by emotion. Is our species moving forwards to adapting and thriving or marching forward to extinction? Global warming will not ruin the earth, it only impacts what is living upon it. My background is in the sciences, […]

    The Industry Health and Safety began as a sincere effort to reduce injury and death in the workplace, however, to some extent, the original purpose has been lost in what might be called “The Industry of Health and Safety”. The Myth In one way or another many of us have come to believe that occupational […]


    Are You Visible On The Job Site?

    X on back, vertical on front, stripes 360 around the arms and legs but do you know why? We do after market striping and we get many requests for to vertical stripes to be sewn on the back of a garment to accommodate logos.  We won’t do it. It is a safety hazard.  A person […]


    Fire Retardant Clothing Misconceptions

    We seem to get a lot of questions about fire retardant clothing and many misconceptions or understanding revolving around what is fire retardant and good practice. I will deal with the fabrics first. Generally there are four types of fibre and or blends: 100% cotton, 88% cotton/12% nylon blends and inherently fire retardant fibres such […]


    Job Board & Job Security Tips

    It is hard to think about safety when job security is top of mind. Many formally secure jobs are now on hold. One young lad was told to show up on site but he would have to find his own transportation. He was just starting out and went and bought a truck. The job disappeared […]


    Pump prices up. Oil down. Does anyone really know?

    There was a recent news item insinuating the price of oil could drop to around eight dollars per barrel. As I write this the price of oil is hovering around $45.00. I will predict somewhere between eight dollars and a hundred and fifty dollars. I am sure the reflex reaction is anybody can predict that. […]
