ABOUT LOWER NICOLA SITE SERVICES

LNSS’s main objective is to provide our clients with the services, equipment, and ideas that help them come in on schedule and on- or under-budget for every single project, regardless of scope. Our key is employing adaptable and innovative strategies in all phases of a construction project. We are a robust and effective organization able to deliver on our key operational priorities and other activities in a cost-effective manner.

Partnership with Infracon

Through a strategic partnership between Infracon, Canada’s leading civil earthworks contractor, and the Lower Nicola Indian Band Development Corporation (LNIBDC), LNSS was created to offer a full range of construction equipment, services, and other assets to all our customers. With a history of successful projects carried out by these two local entities, the partnership was a natural next step.

LNB has a fully dedicated estimating team, project management representatives, safety leadership, and business development discipline located in Merritt and Kamloops and will be available on a full-time basis for LNSS.  Management at LNB is committed to helping LNSS offer safe, economic, technically competent services while supporting local LNIBDC economic objectives.

Preserving the Lower Nicola Indian Band

LNSS prides itself on our partnership with the Lower Nicole Indian Band. Especially for construction projects in areas surrounding the Thompson and Nicola rivers in the southern interior of British Columbia, this working relationship provides LNIB members long-term and meaningful employment as well as a consistent revenue stream.

LNSS operates crushing services at Highland Valley Copper since June 2016. We have two shifts working there: each 4-person shift has 3 Lower Nicola Band members on the team. In other words, 75% of our workers on both shifts are Lower Nicola Band members. This is the kind of continuity and relationship we can bring to your construction project.

Together, LNSS and Infracon will partner with representatives of the LNIBDC or from LNIB with the intent of providing training and skills development for band representatives. The combined LNSS / LNB team will focus on maximizing local content, deploying the equipment and resources currently established by LNIB and reporting to the Lower Nicola Indian Band Development Corporation (LNIBDC) a detailed scorecard on transition, financial and operational metrics over time.

SAFETY AT THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING WE DO

Our commitment to safety reaches all corners of the Company. Safety is our top priority in ensuring a healthy and safe work environment for our employees, workers, contractors and visitors as referenced in our Leadership and Responsibilities section of our Health and Safety Manual. We will not compromise the health and safety of our people and all employees share in our goal of zero incidents. We believe in a healthy work/life balance.

LNSS Safety Commitment

LNSS is committed to safety across all measures of our business, and we have created a fully comprehensive safety program based on WorkSafeBC safety standards to meet or exceed safety requirements in all areas.

Part of that focus includes training and educating our employees so that they can work in the safest, most productive manner possible. Each employee is trained in detail about safe work practices and how his or her role adds to our safety culture. We provide them with explicit knowledge of how to handle and manage safety instances in the most effective and efficient manner possible.

LNSS Safety Culture

We understand that having a strong and effective safety program that is supported by managers will have a positive effect on personal values within our organization. Strong and evident management commitment and safety leadership are vital to this process.

We understand that improved safety equals improved quality and production management systems, and that there is a direct link between organizational management and communication, participation, transparency, and employee empowerment.

Workers are informed of their right and responsibility to refuse unsafe work, know about the hazards in their workplace, and participate in safety matters as part of our safety orientation.

Our communication enables our employees to acquire insight into our safety program expectations and requirements, to receive feedback, to provide input into the program, and to participate in it.

Communications include:

  • Safety Culture
  • Business and departmental meetings
  • Safety meetings
  • Daily Tailgate meetings
  • JOHSC meetings
  • Safety themes
  • Safety alerts
  • Accident statistics
  • Notice boards and posters
  • Personal communication – key point tipping; job performance coaching; planned personal contacts;
  • Safety Recognition Programs that improve job satisfaction and job pride; good performance is an expectation of the work requirements and is the norm, not the exception.

Our employees know their assigned responsibilities; have the required skills and abilities to perform them; and are motivated to act on them in a manner consistent with goals of program and safety culture.  Employee participation in making changes to or suggestions for safety processes allows them to have ownership of the program, to feel empowered and involved.  This improves morale and attitude.  Continuous training increases knowledge and buy-in.

All safety issues and incidents are discussed and reviewed at all levels.  Our Safety Committee is a great employee resource for discussing and resolving health and safety issues and developing a team approach to workplace health and safety.   It is understood that safety issues will be assessed with the contribution and input of employees, supervisors, and senior managers.

LNSS Safety Initiatives & Training

Employee safety is our most important priority. We want to make sure that every person who steps on our job sites—whether employee, contractor, or inspector—can safely go about their business with minimal risk.

To achieve this level of security, we’ve instituted several initiatives, a few of which are:

  • A full-time safety staff member is charged with ensuring that all safety standards are readily apparent and understood. They work closely with crew members to make sure safety measures are easily seen, continuously reinforced, and appropriately encouraged.
  • To demonstrate safety as a workplace culture, senior management leads a Safety Day on an annual basis for all employees that focuses on our dedicated Health and Safety Program and how it relates to WorkSafeBC standards.

On-going Training

Ongoing training is continuously provided to workers and supervisors – examples of ongoing training include but are not limited to:

  • Construction Safety Officer
  • Supervisor training
  • Leadership for Safety Excellence
  • Due Diligence for Employers
  • Management Accountability
  • Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committee

LNSS is member of the following safety associations:
