Unless you’re a school teacher, most of us probably don’t know how many school days there are in a year? If you’re curious, most provinces across Canada have 190 school days with the school year typically starting after Labour Day in September and running to the end of June.
Westwood was awarded a multi-phase retrofit of the various mills in Evraz’s Regina Steelmaking Plant. We started this project in July of 2016 with a peak manpower of approximately 90 people.
We are pleased to announce that Westwood has been named 2016 Engineering Co-op Employer of the Year by the University of British Columbia (UBC Okanagan). Westwood has hosted 12 electrical engineering students since joining the program in 2015.
In Canada, April 28th has been declared the national “Day of Mourning”, in remembrance of those men and women who died from work related injuries or illness. Let’s each take a silent moment to offer our respect and prayers for all these friends and co-workers who’ve died, not only last year but in years gone by as well.
Westwood’s staff Food Bank collection is one of a handful of community involvement initiatives our industrial electrical company takes part in as the holidays approach, and many of us look forward to this special season of giving back.
