Our people across North America continue to work together to seek new opportunities, operate with a sense of urgency, and develop innovative ways to be more efficient and agile. By empowering our people, acting with integrity, setting clear goals and measuring our progress, we will deliver creative solutions to our customers and generate more value for our shareholders.

Health & Safety

Looking Out for Each Other

We are more focused on it than ever, committed to protecting our people, our communities, and our environment.

Exemplary Health and Safety results are achieved by choice, not chance. Safety is our choice. Our people are our most precious asset and we recognize their value.

  • Our business plan is based above all on an unwavering
    commitment to safety
  • We strive to constantly learn and never miss an
    opportunity to do things better
  • We have launched a new Health, Safety and Environment
    system – a “formal way” to make safety part of our day-to-
    day operations across the entire LOGISTEC family from
    our people working on the waterfront to our
    environmental team on the ground
  • We have a hands-on leadership style at LOGISTEC. We
    love to put in the extra effort to learn alongside our
    people, roll up our sleeves and take on tasks, and see
    what’s working and what’s not at every level of our
    organization.
  • We will continue to develop concrete actions and
    effective tools.
  • We are engaging our people on the ground. We encourage
    them to participate in open communication across and
    between all levels of the organization to improve HSE.

Environment

We are ever mindful of our impact on the environment around us. We are focused on implementing changes — both big and small — that protect this most valuable resource. Our people actively participate in efforts to conserve our natural resources. We focus our environmental sustainability work in two key areas where we believe we can have the greatest positive impact – water conservation and energy efficiency.
