Big Eagle Services recently completed a Certificate of Recognition audit conducted by one of the top five audit firms in Alberta. As this firm audits to the highest possible standards, the auditor was benchmarking Big Eagle against some of the leading companies in Alberta. The results of the audit were received today and Big Eagle is pleased to announce that we achieved a very successful score of 93%.
Over the previous two weeks the auditor visited 12 work sites and conducted 59 interviews. Outside of the audit score, the auditor remarked on a very encouraging measure of the company’s growth and significant culture change. The auditor made note that this is one of the first times that she has completed all of the interviews and received the same very positive view on company policies, practices and culture from 100 percent of those interviewed. She said it was quite amazing that the majority of those interviewed without any prompting could tell you that they have participated in a Stop & Talk card action. This is a very positive reflection on Big Eagle’s workers and their ownership of the company’s safety driven culture.
The audit results are particularly impressive as Big Eagle scored 100% in 9 areas.
The auditor communicated very strongly to the management team that Big Eagle has achieved a score she rarely sees other companies achieve and places Big Eagle amongst the top 10% of companies that they audit.
Upon reviewing the results, Brian Bertsch, the company’s Corporate HSE Manager, commented that “This is a job well done by all levels at Big Eagle and definitely something to be proud of. This audit is very telling of the overall direction that we are going as a company. Keep up the good work!”
