New Onboarding Portal - Goes Live March 15th

Onboarding Orientation and WHMIS 2015 Training

In Q1 of 2021, Industra rolled out a new web-based orientation program. Furthering our commitment to safety and increasing productivity, new workers to Industra are expected to complete the Online Orientation Program and WHMIS Training prior to their first day of work. As an employer, we are responsible for ensuring workers are properly instructed and trained on how to do their work safely. This includes providing safety orientation for new and young workers and training them on the basics.
Effectively training and orienting our workers is key to helping them stay safe on the job — and preventing life-changing and costly work-related injuries.
Our Orientation covers Workplace Hazards, Bullying, Rights and Responsibilities, Safe Work Practices and other various topics relating to our work.

An effective orientation is the foundation to a safer workforce.

WHMIS Training is also found in our Training Portal, all workers have the right to know, and it is legislated that all personnel in the workplace that may come in contact with products have WHMIS training. Our online WHMIS training allows us to ensure each worker is aware of the process and how to handle WHMIS products safely.

Hudson's Hope Water Treatment System Design-Build

District of Hudson's Hope • Hudson's Hope, BC

This project involved modifications to Hudson’s Hope’s water treatment plant and installation of a new, direct-feed nano-filtration system. Hudson’s Hope, a community of around 1,000 people, is located in northeast BC, upstream from where the new Site C Dam is under construction on the Peace River. The former water intake system from the adjacent Peace River was replaced due to the system being displaced when the new reservoir was created behind the Site C dam. Challenges included an accelerated schedule to meet downstream works at the Site C Dam, high methane gas content in the well water and work in an environmentally sensitive area along the Peace River Valley.
