We have a tradition at CIMS we like to refer to as TURKEY DAY!!!! This event takes place out of our Port Coquitlam location every December. Customers, Vendors, Suppliers, Retiree’s, Friends of CIMS and CIMS Staff are all invited to come out to enjoy some deep fried turkey with all the fixings!
Parkland Fuels Burnaby commended CIMS for yet another safety milestone on Thursday September 13, 2018 for 7 years and over 870,000 hours worked incident and injury free worked. An outstanding recognition that we are all very proud of.
CIMS donated $5,000 from a $10,000 pledge over to the KBRH Health Foundation for their Emergency Department Campaign. This generous donation will support the Patient Waiting Streaming Area in the new Emergency Department at KBRH. This donation will support the Foundation’s goal to raise $1 million by 2020. Lisa Pasin, Director of Development (left) accepted this donation from our very own Gordon Simmons, General Manager, and his team at CIMS – Rossland Division.

As warmer weather occurs, we tend to spend more time outside under the hot sun. It’s important to know the difference between heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Knowing the signs and symptoms of these two conditions could save your life or that of a loved one.
Exciting news for CIMS, we were once again recognized for our excellence in safety. CIMS received these 2 awards on July 4th at an awards banquet held in Edmonton. The Canadian Safety Achievement Awards acknowledge and reward maintenance industry stakeholders who work together to achieve exceptional safety performance in their work.
The two awards CIMS was recognized for are:
William Warchow Safety Leadership & Innovation Award: CIMS – Syncrude Canada for our Voice of the Worker safety program.
Award Details: In honour of William Warchow, one of the original GPMC/NMC pioneers and policymakers in the maintenance world, this award will be granted to those who effectively demonstrate leadership and positive impact in health and safety.
365 Daily Maintenance Award for work at: CIMS- IOL Nanticoke for working 114,079.20 man hours for maintenance work without having a single recordable injury during 2017.
Award Details: Industrial plants across the country often require year-round daily maintenance to ensure efficiency in their operations and the safety of their personnel. This award showcases stakeholders who have executed daily maintenance at industrial plants for 365 days or greater without having a recordable injury.
These awards come from a lot of solid work by our entire safety group, supervision and leadership team
With the first summer long weekend only a few days away, our minds may already be on plans away from work. The next time you find yourself in a state of mind that contributes to risky behavior, take a deep breath and say to yourself, “Hey, if I keep this up, I could hurt myself.” Take the time to get your mind back on task and keep yourself safe.
We couldn’t be more excited to be on this ride with Abi Strate- who is our sponsored Olympic hopeful. Abi just finished 2 world cups in Sapporo, Japan. She placed 29th in the first one and 30th in the second. Watch for pictures of Abi wearing her CIMS toque all around the world!!! GO ABI GO!!!
