OUR TRAINING INITIATIVE
We have invested significantly into creating and implementing team member training processes to grow, develop, and train our staff. Our commitment to continuing education encourages our people to be the best they can, work safely, and care about the work they perform. Read below for more information about the specifics of our every-member training process.

Our Training Process

New Employee Orientation
New employees are trained on company policies, safety standards, rights (e.g. the right to refuse unsafe work), and job specific duties.
Crew Lead Supervision
Employees are placed under the direction of an experienced crew lead who supervises safe work procedures and proper execution of tasks.
Evaluation and Training
Before being allowed on customer sites, our people are put through evaluation and training to ensure proper levels of skill and safety.
Our staff undergo a variety of training programs to enable them to safely and effectively perform their jobs. Some of the in-house training we conduct:
Our staff members are encouraged to undertake additional training through the Olds College Horticulture Program and The Alberta Construction Safety Association
It’s our pleasure to serve you, your customers, and your staff through continuous development and improvement.
