Hallmark recognizes that safety is paramount in all aspects of its operations and activities, as well as those of the contractors working on behalf of Hallmark. Safety is a part of the culture at all levels, as evidenced by Hallmark's Safety Motto:
"Safety Starts With Me"
Hallmark has a dedicated Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) department that is actively involved with customers and contractors to improve safety performance within Hallmark's and their own operations. Hallmark has made operational changes, such as bringing its pipe handling process in-house in 2008, resulting in markedly improved safety performance and reduced rate of injury. Hallmark manages all of its safety programs to meet or exceed the most stringent safety standards of any of our customers.
In various areas of safety, such as load and cargo securement, Hallmark's HSE team, in cooperation with other departments at Hallmark, is leading the industry and effecting positive change. Hallmark is constantly evaluating and implementing new approaches to create a safer work environment. Some of the examples for this proactive approach to safety management are:
- Safety pre-qualification processes for contractors
- Active, real-time, proactive monitoring of the safety performance and behaviour of Hallmark's employees and contractors
Hallmark also actively participates in Safety Stand Downs and other industry and customer initiatives.
Hallmark has held an Alberta Provincial Certificate of Recognition (COR) since 1998, indicating Hallmark's safety policies, procedures and training are consistent with industry best practices and government OH&S requirements in Alberta. Hallmarks' key safety statistics, such as company Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIF), are provided under Industry Data.
Hallmark is proud of its safety record and that of its contractors and business partners. By continuing to jointly identify and implement improvements to safety, health and environmental protection programs, Hallmark will ensure it maintains a safe and healthy work environment for its employees, contractors and customers.
