NDT Global Canada - no time loss in 25 years

NDT Global Employees at Work

It has been a landmark year for NDT Global's Canadian operation. This year saw the company successfully achieve 25 years without a loss time incident, an important factor in pipeline integrity management programs.

The opening of the Petroleum Industry Training Service (PITS) in 1988, close to the location of the company's previous facility, played a significant role in the 25-year landmark. This provided 42 recommendations to the oil and gas industry and mandated worker safety training through the guiding principles.

In 2003, NDT Global Canada attained the Certificate of Recognition (COR) through an extensive third party audit process. Such recognition represented a significant step for the company, as it represented government recognition of its safety program. Underlining the significance of the operation's perpetual safety performance is the fact that the government annually audits its safety program to maintain the COR.

CEO Steve Gaida points towards the commitment at all levels of the company to ensure that safety is a constant driving force.

"Trending changes to our safety program now focus more on the measurement of leading indicators, as the minimization of loss is the mainstay to all successful safety programs. All of the recognition must go to the employees for their active participation in making the company safety program such a success over the last 25 years," he said.
