Demonstrated Culture of Health & Safety
At Inflector, we know that our team is the key to our success. We invest in our team through ongoing training and education, taking the responsibility into our own hands to guarantee that our 500 dedicated professionals continue to be at the forefront of abatement and health and safety best practices.
Highest Training Standards
All of our abatement technicians are required to hold a certification through the Ontario Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities (MTCU) and must successfully complete the Asbestos Abatement Worker (AAW) certification program. Our Supervisor Staff must be certified as an Asbestos Abatement Supervisor (AAS). Successful completion of these certification programs requires fulfilling a series of courses and training and receiving a minimum score of 70% on the final exam.
There is an additional requirement for labour staff to be certified in the Hazardous Materials Worker program through the Ontario College of Trades. To keep up with any updates in the industry, our staff also completes their Working at Heights training every three years.
Dedicated to Safety
Inflector has embraced a shift in the culture of health and safety in the construction industry. We focus on maximizing the number of things that go right, viewing people as our number one resource in preventing health and safety-related injuries and illnesses. In addition to a fully qualified team leading our safety protocols, Inflector has adapted the use of leading technologies available in the industry. Through a cloud-based document management system, we are able to implement efficient record keeping and share critical insights with site teams on safety performance.
We acknowledge the health and physical hazards in our work. Yet to date, we are proud to share the following Health and Safety statistics:
- Zero claims of occupational diseases
- Zero traumatic fatalities
- Zero summary offences
- 100% of workforce employed at the end of a return-to-work plan
- A five-year Average Lost Time Injury Rate of 0.81 from 2015-2019
We are also proud to implement a certified Joint Health and Safety Committee which allows workers and management alike to share, discuss and improve safety concerns and best practices for current and future jobs.
