Workplace Injuries and Fatalities

Unfortunately, many Winnipeg workers are injured or killed on the job each year. Common safety hazards include:

  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Being struck by objects
  • Motor vehicle incidents
  • Exposure to dangerous substances

Several factors contribute to Winnipeg's workplace injury and fatality rates:

  • Aging infrastructure and equipment

Workplaces without a safety committee, safety coordinator, or emergency response plan are especially vulnerable. All companies must make safety a priority to protect their employees.

Turnaround Support in Winnipeg

Business downtime can be extremely costly. When your operations in Winnipeg face an unexpected shutdown or you have a planned maintenance turnaround coming up, you need a dedicated team to get your facility back up and running efficiently.

Here at Irwin's Safety, we understand the challenges of turnarounds and are committed to safety and minimizing downtime at your facility. We provide various OH&S Services to industries such as mining, oil & gas, power generation, petrochemicals, industrial, and manufacturing.

The Costs of Downtime

Unplanned downtime during daily operations can completely halt productivity, lead to missed deadlines for business requirements, and result in substantial profit losses. Even planned maintenance shutdowns for things like permitting, audits, and inspections can negatively impact the bottom line if not managed properly.

Turnarounds often require increased staffing levels and long work hours to complete tasks as quickly as possible. When you factor in procurement costs, construction, temporary labor, and loss of production during this idle time, it’s clear why minimizing turnaround time is essential.

Irwin's Safety provides dedicated 24/7 onsite support from our team of experienced safety experts and technical professionals during your entire turnaround event. Whether your facility is in oil and gas, mining, power generation, pulp and paper, or other industrial operations, we have the specialized knowledge to meet your needs.

Our turnaround services include:

  • Permit application processing
  • Audits of turnaround time
  • Confined space rescue crews
  • Increased staffing assistance
  • Technical troubleshooting
  • Procurement assistance
  • Project management and planning
  • Hazard identification and risk assessments
  • Assembly and disassembly supervision
  • Testing and commissioning oversight

Leaning on our team for support means you can focus resources on critical maintenance tasks during outages.

As recommended by the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce, having a professional safety team support turnarounds improves timelines.
