Bros Welding Shop Construction - We're Making Progress!

posted by Bros Welding    |   September 29, 2014 06:08

Over the past few months, Bros Welding has been working hard on shop construction for the new shop located in Lanigan, Saskatchewan. We've made a lot of progress since our last blog post in April!

The structure is erect and this weekend consisted of laying down the rebar and finish installing the last few panels of tin for the roof. We couldn't have made as much progress as we did this weekend without the help of our family that drove down from Manitoba to help. 

Stay tuned for more detailed progress updates and pictures soon!

Bros Welding Safety Tips: Welding Safety Hazards

posted by Bros Welding    |   December 11, 2013 17:23

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety has a great section on their website that covers welding safety hazards.

 I strongly recommend that anyone considering welding review this website before picking up the torch. The OHS website covers important topics such as personal protective equipment that can be used when welding. In the upcoming months, we will expand on this topic with some more of our own Bros Welding safety tips!

Bros Welding Safety Tips: Surviving Saskatchewan Winters

posted by Bros Welding    |   November 23, 2013 13:04

As we move into the winter months, it is important to be prepared for the harsh Saskatchewan temperatures that often dip below 30 degrees Celsius.

Clothing:  Invest in winter clothes that are made to withstand low temperatures. As a welder, you must also ensure that any winter outerwear that is worn while welding is fire retardant. Purchase steel toed boots that are made for winter. Don’t forget accessories such as gloves and headgear to protect your ears and keep your head warm.  

Vehicles:  It’s important to take the extra time to ensure that your vehicle is tuned up to avoid any unexpected issues when on the road in winter. To be prepared for any potential issues, all vehicles should be equipped with a roadside emergency kit which should include matches, candles, heat packs and blankets.

Shovelling:  Keep the walkways clear but always consider safety when you are shovelling. Shovelling and using salt, sand or other substances with ice melting properties will help reduce the potential for slip and fall incidents, which can and do cause serious injuries.

Considering Safety in the Welding Job Search

posted by Bros Welding    |   October 28, 2013 10:12

Are you in search of a welder position in Saskatchewan? There are many factors to consider as you start your job search and a significant one that is often overlooked is safety. There are a few questions to consider related to safety as you seek potential employers in your job search:

Does the employer have safety policies and procedures in place for all employees to follow?

Employers that are committed to the safety of their employees will have official safety policies and procedures in place and should have a manual available for employees to refer to at all times.

Is there an open door policy for reporting any incidences that may cause an unsafe work environment?

As an employee, you should not be afraid to notify your supervisor of incidences that may cause an unsafe work environment. An open-door policy should be promoted and practiced to ensure the safety of all workers.

Are workers provided with safety training?

Required safety training should be identified upon accepting a new position and ongoing training provided throughout employment, as needed.

Does the employer adhere to The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations?

In Saskatchewan, workplace health and safety is governed by The Occupational Health and Safety Act and The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. The Act and Regulations apply to employers, supervisors, workers, self-employed persons, contractors, suppliers and owners.

Can the employer prove their safety record through a global resource such as ISNetworld?

ISNetworld is a global resource for connecting corporations with safe, reliable contractor/suppliers from capital-intensive industries. This platform collects self-reported conformance information from contractors/suppliers and verifies its accuracy. Being a part of a network such as ISNetworld shows that the employer is concerned about safety and making their safety records available to other companies and corporations.

If you cannot find the answers to these questions on a potential employer’s websites then add them to your list of questions to ask in the in-person interview. Welding is a high-risk position and the answers to these questions can determine whether or not you can expect to make it home safe at the end of the day.
