The PumpJack has implemented a series of Protocols and Policies to ease employee concerns while creating a safe workplace.  These protocols and Policies will be known as the Safe Work “Safety Plan” and have been adapted from information provided by WorkSafe BC, ABLE BC and Vancouver Coastal Health. Reassuring our guests, as well as the general public that we are providing a safe environment to maintain some social atmosphere played an important role in creating the Safe Work “Safety Plan”
