Concrete Pumper Trucks

Concrete pumper trucks are an integral part of Western Canada’s oilfield, construction, and manufacturing industries. Keeping your units maintained, inspected and certified ensures that when they get on site, they are permitted to operate and operate safely.

As the safety push moves more from the Calgary boardroom down to the lease, the legal requirements of having certification paperwork available is a necessity.

We’ll make sure you have everything you need to get onsite and get to work!

Aerial Lifts

Man lift operations put workers at hazard by lifting them in the air.

Every OH&S jurisdiction in which we operate has strict regulations regarding the construction, safe use, maintenance and certification of all types of man lift unit.

Many prime contractors insist on maintenance, inspection and certification requirements that exceed those typically set by the manufacturer and insist on at least yearly NDT inspection and certification. We can help!

New criteria regarding fall arrest protection for workers in man baskets are being introduced. These criteria deal with the hazard of ejection from the basket during motion or collision. We’ll make your man basket meet the new requirements.
