Safety and Environment
Safety of our team and others working or playing around our operations is a top priority at Mainstream Biological Consulting Inc. Safety is promoted for all field operations through our in-house Occupational Health and Safety Program that includes a training manual and regular safety meetings. Project specific safety plans are developed and reviewed with field crews prior to starting all new projects. In addition, our staff maintain certifications to ensure they are working safely in the field including first aid, electrofishing, boat operations and swiftwater rescue.
In recognition of our impact to the natural world, Mainstream Biological Consulting Inc. is committed to reducing our corporate environmental footprint as a company and as individuals. Mainstream Biological Consulting actively seeks out opportunities and encourages staff to identify ways to improve our workplace and work habits.
Proactive measures include recycling, responsible use of consumable materials such as paper, installation of motion sensors to control lighting in the office and reducing water use. Stormwater run-off from our corporate office property is reduced through the use of gravel surfacing in the parking area. Staff members frequently commute through cycling and carpooling.
