We are committed to the protection of our employees, contractors, visitors, patrons, volunteers, and physical assets from accidental loss, damage, or injury.

Through the town’s progressive health and safety policy, both potential and current partners have access to a working environment that promotes their personal well-being.

In fulfilling this commitment to protect both people and property, our management aims to provide and maintain a safe and healthy work environment in compliance with legislative requirements.

Our organization also strives to eliminate any foreseeable hazards which may result in property damage, accidents, personal injury or illness.

As such, our Health and Safety Policy have the following thrusts:

  • Employees and contractors will be responsible for minimizing accidents within our facilities and on municipal property.
  • Employees, contractors and visitors will follow safe work practices and procedures;
  • Safety is the direct responsibility of all managers, supervisors, employees and contractors;
  • All work will comply with federal, provincial and municipal safety requirements;
  • Employees and contractors will be familiar with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations, and;
  • This policy does not take precedence over the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations.

The Town of Drumheller currently holds a Certificate of Recognition (COR). This is awarded to employers who develop health and safety programs that meet established standards.

Certificates are issued by Alberta Jobs, Skills, Training and Labor and are co-signed by Certifying Partners.

Achieving and maintaining a valid COR is required for earning a financial incentive through the WCB Partnerships in Injury Reduction program.

Effective health and safety management systems have been shown to have an impact on reducing injuries.

Eliminating the social and financial effects of injuries can strengthen the business success of participating employers.

For these reasons, we are proud to say that we have been doing our best to provide service without sacrificing this important part of our operations.

With our community’s safety in question, we take pride in our effective collaboration with federal and provincial agencies that enable us to reach you more extensively.

Interested in knowing what makes our Town safe? You came to the right page.

A key organization in this objective is the RCMP.

With the RCMP in town, our sense of community ownership has never been more apparent.

More importantly, having knowledge about the RCMP and its specifics allows you take safety to another level not just for yourself but for the community as a whole.

 

ABOUT THE RCMP

 

rcmp2

The RCMP is an agency of the Canadian Ministry of Public Safety and serves as our national police service.

Consisted of more than 28, 000 personnel, it is considered as one of the world’s most renowned police forces.

The RCMP detachment in our community is part of a far-reaching national security strategy.

The national, federal, and municipal scope of the RCMP is what makes it unique in the world.

Mandated by the RCMP Act, the RCMP enforces laws in our country under the authority of the Canadian Parliament. It is also tasked to administer justice in provinces and up to 180 municipalities.

Its aims include the prevention and apprehension of serious and organized crime. Although this might sound far from the scope of our community, it can affect all of us in a big way.

This would include the taxes that we pay, our car insurance premiums, our banking fees, and your health.

Another area that the RCMP focuses on is our youth. In this area, the RCMP strives to reduce youth involvement in crime, whether as victims or offenders.

The issues that surround this objective are bullying and cyber bullying, impaired and distracted driving, substance abuse, and youth violence.

To combat these issues, the RCMP employs sustainable responses that focus on risk factors, prevention, and early interventions.

This can be done through promoting youth engagement and empowerment.

Aside from these, our RCMP strives to promote national security, protect the welfare of our aboriginal communities, and safeguard the economic integrity of communities around the country.

 

OUR LOCAL DETACHMENT

Our municipal RCMP is committed to realizing these goals in a way that concretely impacts our community.

Not only do they provide policing on a 24-hour basis, they are also active in community events and organizations.

An example of this would be their participation in the Duke of Edinburgh award, an opportunity for our young leaders to cultivate the values of personal discovery, self-reliance, and responsibility.

This award aims to empower and guide our youth by learning effective communication and goal setting in a team-centric environment.

Another initiative that our local RCMP is involved with is the program called Two-wheel view.

In this innovative endeavor, our officers help create avenues for our community youth to learn about valuable life lessons through educational bicycle programs and expeditions.

The areas touched by this program include leadership, health and wellness, and self-esteem.

In addition, a vital service that our RCMP officers is victim services.  This plays an important role in reducing the negative impact of victimization.  This program lessens the effects of trauma, enhances safety, encourages participation in the justice system, and prepares victims acting as witnesses for court proceedings.

Our RCMP officers are also involved with other community activities such as coaching in soccer, playing dodgeball and floor hockey against school teams, and with the local sea cadets.

healthandsafety

We recognize health and safety as two intimately related issues that have a significant impact in the lives of the members of our community.

Through this, we have strategically identified various methods of cooperation that account for these two areas. More importantly, the devised means to combat threats in these issues are designed to create impact in both the small and the large scale.

This section aims to discuss health and safety in the concept of service that we, as an organization, adhere to.

If you aspire to keep our Town safe and the health of the members of our community in check, information in this section is vital. 

In the context of Town services, our objectives in health and safety are made possible by our effective coordination with RCMP and the Town Policing Committee.

Another way this is made possible is through our commitment with the agencies that have been mandated to promote a workplace environment that promotes the employee’s general welfare.

We have a strong commitment to keeping our community healthy and safe.

It is our hope that through the avenues above, the Town of Drumheller and its community continue to work together to make our Town a place where we can thrive.
