POST gives back to the community

Paying it forward: POST and OPCA help other organizations to promote safety in the workplace.

We are proud to say since POST was introduced to the industry, oil companies have reported a decrease in their incident statistics and have attributed this to the POST program.

The POST program has evolved significantly over the past several years and could not have been accomplished without the support of the oil companies, the involvement and dedication of the POST advisory committee and most importantly the support of the industry that utilize the program. With our mandate of keeping our industry safe we hope to continue to provide this program and constantly improve it to make it the best resource for the POST community.

As administrator of the POST program, the Ontario Petroleum Contractors Association has invested back into POST by working with the advisory committee to continue to developing new initiatives and keeping the program current. It was also important to support other organizations that shared the common goal of keeping our workers safe. This is why the OPCA made the decision to support Threads of Life, an organization that promotes safety in the workplace and supports families who have suffered a workplace fatality, traumatic life-altering injury, or occupational disease through many of their programs across Canada.

To date, the OPCA has raised almost $50,000.00 for Threads of Life and it is thanks to the support we receive from members and industry.
