All installers are required to complete the Construction Safety Training System (CSTS) offered by the Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA). This course is designed to educate employees as to the general safety guidelines for the construction industry. Furthermore, employees are trained in Emergency First Aid, CPR, Industrial Fall Protection, and Industrial Rope Access.

Baywest is currently working with an external safety consultant to aid us in designing and implementing a Safety Management System while working towards obtaining a Certificate of Recognition (COR) through the ACSA.

Safety Management System

Baywest has worked extensively with Vertical Safety, an Edmonton based safety company, to produce a client specific Safety Management System.

Highlights of this system include revised and updated versions of Baywest:

  • Hazard Assessments
  • Safe Work Practices
  • Standard Job Procedures
  • Fall Protection Plan
  • Emergency Response Plan
  • Inspection Reports
  • Incident Investigations

Baywest employees are involved in routine safety meetings where we discuss and implement new strategies based on feedback gathered from the field.

Industrial Rope Access

Baywest utilizes an industrial rope access system to gain access to the exterior of many structures. This highly efficient and safe technique uses a double rope system and professional climbing equipment to assist workers.

Included in the Alberta Occupational Health & Safety Code is a new section specifically addressing rope access. Baywest has reviewed its practices to ensure that all equipment and procedures are compliant with the new code. Installers are trained by senior staff to a set of standards derived from the Safe Practices of SPRAT (Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians).

Through a combination of training and practical experience,
Baywest employs a competent installation crew,
adequately qualified to perform their work
safely and efficiently.
