  • Little Smokey employees possess varying levels of certification according to their job tasks, which include
    • WHMIS
    • TDG

We've created a COR managed safety manual that's specific to our jobsite and reforestation conditions in general, and are active participants in Alberta's Partners in Injury Reduction program. In an effort to refine and mange our safety program, our company has obtained certification with both Comply Works and ISNetworld.
