Five local companies were among almost 700 Alberta employers who have been recognized by the Government of Alberta and the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Council for having superior health and safety records.

Stettler area companies Contact Safety Service Ltd., Crude Services Inc., Hunt Inspection Ltd., and TKS Controls Ltd. and Maximum Controls Ltd of Tees were recognized as “Best Safety Performer” in Alberta.

“These companies have the right priorities on their work sites,” said Hector Goudreau, Minister of Alberta Employment and Immigration. “Workers should get home safely at the end of every shift to enjoy life and family and everything else our province offers.”

“It is encouraging in today’s current economic state to see such a large number of Alberta employers placing emphasis on integrating safety into their operations to achieve such a success,” said Tim Bennett, who chairs the Occupational Health and Safety Council. “Congratulations.”
