Health & Safety

Dave Moldon, CSO - Profile and Discussion

Taking Industra to the Highest Level

Background
Dave has had an interesting career. He has experience in various facets of the construction industry including residential townhouses and highrises, commercial and medical buildings, building maintenance and restoration, and heavy civil and marine construction. Dave has held positions including foreman, assistant superintendent, superintendent, safety superintendent/CSO, safety manager and project manager.
Dave lives in Coquitlam with his wife and three kids. He enjoys taking his family camping during the summer and spending time outdoors biking and hiking.
Some of the lessons he has learned when it comes to health and safety:
  • If you take care of the little things, and pay attention to detail, the big things will take care of themselves.
  • Do more listening than talking to get ideas and buy-in.
  • Everyone wants to do the right thing, some people just need to be shown and/or reminded more than others.
  • Be adaptable and keep an open mind. The construction industry has changed considerably over the last 20 years and will likely continue to evolve.
  • Learning from mentors and your industry peers is fundamental to your development.
Recent Accomplishments
We have made major strides in the last few years. Some of the highlights include:
  • Achieving a COR audit rating of 93 percent for three consecutive years.
  • Built a comprehensive OHS&E Program.
  • Implemented a robust safety and quality control system using the Procore project management system.
  • Developed an online Onboarding Orientation for employees and subcontractors.
  • Developed an online WHMIS 2015  Worker Training module.
  • Switched from a paper-based system to online reporting for all safety and quality control reporting.
Work to be Done
Training and Skills Matrix. In the past, when we were involved in five or six projects and had a work force of around 50 workers, we had a pretty good handle on the training level and skills of our workers. Today, with over a dozen projects and a workforce in the hundreds, we are in the process of developing a training and skills matrix to better track and manage our workforce. This new system was rolled out in December 2021.
New Inhouse Training Courses. We will continue to send workers to third-party training courses (e.g., first aid courses), but we will also be offering certified inhouse training courses for courses for fall protection and aerial work platform.
Challenging Times
The COVID–19 pandemic has not made the construction an easy industry to operate in. From supply chain disruptions to a host of health and safety requirements, it has made “Completing projects on-time and on budget” a challenging goal. As we continue to meet these challenges, Industra would like to thank all our staff for the continued support of the policies and procedures that have been put in place due to the pandemic.
