Standard General is committed to the prevention of accidents and injuries. SG seeks to ensure the health and safety of all employees by providing safe working environments by developing safe work practices and by providing employees with safety and environmental training.

SG recognizes that accidental loss can be controlled through good management in combination with active employee participation. Safety and the protection of the environment are the direct responsibility of every employee.

We continuously strive to comply, conserve and improve upon our efforts. The bottom line aside, the fact that we are creating a safe work environment, building sustainable end-products and sending every employee home every night, is something worth smiling about.

At SG, all management functions comply with the safety policy and government legislation as they relate to planning, operation, environmental protection and maintenance of facilities and equipment.

Our endeavors are celebrating the following successes:

From the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), the Diamond Achievement Commendation 2006 / 2007 / 2008 for our Spyhill Asphalt Plant.

From Colas North America, the Vanguard Safety Award 2008 for our safety performance in Calgary.


Safety is a top priority in our company. In 2008, Standard General Calgary was part of the group that was awarded the International Crystal Woodpecker Award from Colas. The Woodpecker Award is the highest safety award achievable by all Colas companies worldwide. In 2008, we achieved a safety rating of 0.00, an accomplishment that  Standard General Calgary, as a subsidiary of the ColasCanada group of companies, was very proud to contribute towards.
