Cruickshank has been named one of Canada’s safest employers in 2013. The company received a national gold award on October 30th at a gala in Toronto.
Cruickshank has lived by the company motto “we do our level best” since 1956 – driving ingenuity in road, bridge and infrastructure construction services with an engaged team and leading edge tools to get the job right – every time.
Founder Les Cruickshank started the Kingston-based business as a contractor on the St. Lawrence Seaway project. His son Steve, now the company’s CEO, said his father always had a philosophy of providing great quality, doing better than industry standards and always bringing an extra touch to what he did.
The company has a joint health and safety committee, safety representatives at each job site, ongoing training, employee recognition, regular site inspections and membership in and adherence to the standards of the International Safety Network (ISN).
