Announcing a Few New Exciting Milestones and Partnerships!


Recently, Taurus held a celebration for reaching 500,000 safety man-hours without a Lost Time Incident (LTI), a safety milestone on our Common Services contract with Northwest Redwater Partnership project!

The celebration was attended by all employees who each received a Taurus jacket signifying the 500,000 hours on the sleeve. With the dedication and commitment of our employees, craft, supervision and management, this goal was obtainable. Dallas Dolanz, the Project Manager on the Northwest Redwater Upgrader Site, praised all employees and workers for their proactive attitude and commitment towards safety.

Applauding the employees’ and workers’ efforts in achieving this milestone, Taurus Safety Lead Les Welling said: ‘At Taurus, we believe that ownership of safety is everyone’s responsibility and the achievement of 500,000 work-hours without Lost Time Incident could not have been achieved without the commitment of employees to this principle. Thanks to all who worked so safely to assist us in this achievement, let’s keep up the great work!!!
