Commitment to Safety

When combining remote-access locations with helicopters and heavy machinery, accidents are not an option.

Crux goes to great lengths to identify hazards, eliminate and mitigate these hazards where possible, and provide our crews with constant, up to date training. Whether relating to worksite cleanliness and safety, environmental protection, or crisis management, you can be assured that Crux employees will always be fully prepared.

The way we see it, safe operations are essential to providing the highest value to our clients, our employees and our stakeholders.

For more information on our environmental training, HASP and JSA program, drug testing, or operator certifications, please contact our Safety Department
