Courtesy of KellerAfter six months as part of the largest independent ground engineering company in the world, Keller Canada has broken a record with regards to its safety program, and their leading technologies have given them continued success in projects across the country. Keller Canada (formerly the piling division of North American Construction Group) was bought by U.K.-based Keller Group Plc. (Keller), in July 2013, though the management and operations of the company have remained the same.

“We were acquired by the Keller Group because we are a leader in piling,” said Bernie Robert, president of Keller Canada. “Our team has more than 30 years of experience in a variety of climates and soil conditions across Canada, and we have a full range of piling technologies. Now we are connected internationally and will continue to be at the forefront of the industry.”

While the company’s safety program prior to July 2013 was strong, since being named Keller Canada and adopting the Keller Safety Framework, the ultimate goal is to have zero injuries through the effective management of safety in all operations. In the last six months, the company has had no lost time injuries; in fact, no lost time injuries for more than 800,000 worked hours.
