Challenges Faced

Complete the work within the schedule authorized by the client and quickly react to the additional labour that required the dispatch of 40 extra men. In order to prevent work accidents, our CNESST manager WSIB made sure that two safety meetings were held daily throughout the shutdown.


Challenges Met

Carry out the work within the agreed upon schedule and quickly react to the unexpected need for additional work (that had not been considered beforehand) without adding men for labour. The experience and resourcefulness of the employees involved led to the success of this planned shutdown. The person in charge of the CNESST held two safety meetings daily throughout the shutdown, in order to prevent work-related accidents.
