Companies realize that even a basic safety program has several necessary characteristics: it must be
reliable, dependable, defendable, flexible and compliant with occupational health and safety code. At GEOTrac, we understand
these regulations and how to create solutions that comply but are also cost effective. We know your day to day business. We’ve
been on a lease site and recognize the challenges of implementing a safety program.
Complying with Federal Occupational Health and Safety Code
On March 31, 2004 the Canadian Federal Government enacted into law, “Bill C-45 which was a bill to amend the Criminal Code
that imposes criminal liability on corporations and organizations, that fail to take reasonable measures to protect employee
and public safety.”
At GEOTrac we provide reasonable measures for companies to develop safety programs that improve worker safety.
Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Code – Section 28– “Work Alone”
Provisions to help improve safety of remote field workers are especially critical for the oil and gas, forestry and mining industries. As
of July 1, 2009, the Alberta Government has revised the OHS code section 28 to clarify that it is no longer sufficient to provide the
worker with the ability to check in with the employer on a regular basis. It is now the responsibility of the employer to either visit
the employee on a regular basis or use electronic communication to remain in constant communication, that’s GEOTrac.
Improving safety of remote field workers is critical. This does not have to come at the cost of lower productivity. The GEOTrac
solution including the Engine Control Module provides a 360 degree view of what is happening in the field. Detailed mapping,
FleetSmart Maintenance application, accurate GPS tracking, route optimization, dispatching, two-way messaging and vehicle
diagnostics all contribute to increased productivity. Monitoring engine fault codes can help fleets be proactive on fleet
maintenance before incurring expensive vehicle repairs.
