Five key values underpin the work we do: honesty, competence, creativity, teamwork and environmental stewardship. We work hard to develop teams of talented individuals, and we foster a climate of trust and integrity through open and honest communication. These principles have real and lasting benefits for our employees, shareholders, suppliers and the communities we serve.
Health and Safety
Health and safety are our top priorities. We believe that no task is so urgent that we cannot complete it safely. We closely manage the health and safety risks of all our operations, providing thorough safety training to prevent accidents and injuries. No employee should have to subject themselves, or a colleague, to a situation that may be unsafe, a risk to health or a risk to the environment.
Our mission at WCMRC is to protect British Columbia’s pristine coastline. We apply a stringent environmental policy to all aspects of our operations, including our business planning, operating practices and training programs. When we’re responding to a spill, we adhere to the required environmental and legal standards, and we work to mitigate any environmental hazards associated with company activities.
WCMRC is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.
Training and Development
We help our employees stay sharp with mentorship, training and professional development programs. In addition to our ongoing Transport Canada monitored tabletop and in situ exercises, our spill response team members receive equipment-specific training, response strategies training and cross-border training alongside our mutual aid partners in Alaska and Washington State.
WCMRC also provides specialized training such as vessel master certification, and forklift and crane training. Our health and safety training includes courses on first-aid, confined-space entry and atmospheric testing, as well as certification courses in Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) and Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG). We also offer tuition reimbursements for team members who pursue applicable education or training outside the workplace.
We care for our employees. WCMRC offers a full suite of employee benefits, including:
- Group health and wellness coverage
- Life insurance
- Group pension plan
