Innovation, Health and Safety award 2015


On October 28, 2015, ECL Services Inc in Canada was awarded the grand prize for “2015 Innovation Health Security at work” by the Commission de la santé et de la sécurité au travail (CSST) for the National Capital region in Quebec.

 This prize rewards companies, which implemented tangible solutions or proactive steps aiming at preventing work-related accidents.

Among 19 other laureates in the small and medium enterprises category, ECL Services was rewarded for its collector shoes derailleur system. 

This safety equipment, when installed on a crane runway, will derail the shoes from the moving crane. By doing so, it automatically cuts off the power of the overhead crane before entering the work zone of the other crane thus eliminating the risk of a collision. This problem was identified by a field technician during an inspection at one client’s premises.

This innovation is a result from an excellent collaboration between employees in order to find reliable solution to assure all workers’ safety.

In May 2016, ECL Services Inc will take part in the selection of the national price.
