Pepco Pipe Services is ISNet certified, meaning we as a company meet internal and governmental record keeping and comply with regular requirements. We are also certified under ABSA, the Alberta Boilers Safety Association, who administers Alberta’s pressure equipment safety programs. Pepco also adheres by the rules and regulations of Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety Act, and we take pride in our safety procedures as a whole.
Pepco upholds great safety standards for all areas of our shop and office. For welders, coaters/painters and blasters, a daily hazard assessment form is filled out and signed off by all workers present in each area before any work is begun. The form goes over potential hazards, such us: Environmental Hazards, Ergonomic Hazards, Physical Hazards, Personal Limitations, Equipment and Tools as well as a Preparedness Checklist.
Our shop manager is greatly relied upon to ensure that every worker in the shop meets Pepco’s safety standards. Every 2 hours the shop foreman does a checklist to make certain that not only are things getting done, but that they’re getting done properly and safely. The checklist goes over that all crew members have direct orders that they are complying with and that they are all on schedule for the day’s agenda. They also double check that every area of the shop has completed the daily hazard assessment before anything else gets done. The shop manager also writes down what jobs need to be completed for each shop side and has the duty of prioritizing which jobs are in need of immediate attention to make certain our customers are satisfied with timeline it takes to complete their jobs.
Pepco’s office staff also understands the great values of safety, and an Office Inspection Form is completed monthly to ensure that not only is the office is of great standard, but also safe from potential hazards. Some items inspected on the Office Inspection List are: Drawers/Files are closed when not being used, that there are no possible tripping hazards (No lose rugs, or unattended cords), as well as making certain that fire exits are clearly marked and fire extinguishers are accessible and inspected monthly. We also keep safety glasses, steel toed boots that just slip on, and earmuffs available to all guest and customers who come in to tour the facilities beyond the office.
