Twice as Safe, Twice as Productive

Twice as Safe, Twice as Productive by 2020 was launched in 2014, in an effort to foster a culture of excellence in execution amongst Alberta’s construction companies.

Productivity is important: by better using our resources, Alberta’s construction industry will be better able to compete in the global economy, and help Alberta remain the economic engine driving Canada.

Productivity can’t come at the expense of safety—they have to work in tandem. That’s why thinking about productivity at all stages of a project, from planning, through contracting, procurement and site work, can ensure a project’s value chain is working effectively, while keeping people safe.

The Construction Owners Association of Alberta recognizes that COAA’s office in Edmonton is located within Treaty 6 Territory and within the Métis homelands and Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4. We further acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations and we are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
