What is Safety Branding?
And why is it important?
It’s a common story in workplace safety. A newly introduced Safety Program or Safety Awareness Campaign can be expertly crafted with excellent information but ultimately have less than desirable results when implemented.
How a program is presented is as important as how it is constructed. Let us help you make your Safety Initiatives the most successful they can be.
Enhancing Safety Culture
Safety without Borders
Over the years of working on Safety Programs, we’ve learned a lot from industry and our customers. Most of the time, our Customers will have spent a significant amount of time and money putting various safety programs and personnel in place. We are not looking to replace things that are working on our Customer’s job sites. We create our programs, designs and site plans that enhance what is already in place.
Give an existing program a “face”, create an implementation strategy and site plan to get maximum effectiveness and employee buy-in, train area champions and team leads to carry a specific theme and message to the workers. We can do part of your programs, all of them, train or even just design. We know how Safety Programs work and how to make a unique customer the most successful they can be.
Our Safety Record
In the over 15 years of Devco’s existence we have not recorded a single Lost Time Injury. This includes all work in our manufacturing facility and all on site labour at our customer locations.
At Lafarge we take Safety very seriously and we can say that in the Lafarge Northern Alberta group we have seen a big decrease in Line of Fire incidents since we rolled out Devco’s Safety Awareness Program.Chris Hogemann CSO
Reduction in Lost Time Injuries
Methodology and Results
Safety in numbers
Devco has built a proven methodology for the implementation of a Safety Program. Why is this important?
Safety Professionals are always looking for ways to improve their Company’s Safety record as everyone’s ultimate goal is to have everyone go home each and every night. Not every supplier have proven and repeatable statistics that prove their approach works. Devco does, and has statistics from multiple companies that can prove that our approach works.
Not only are the reductions statistically significant, the return on investment is greater as well. Our customers report that a Lost Time Injury can total to well over $110,000 once you start adding up lost productivity, multiple employees involvement during the investigation, training replacement workers, paying wages that do not make the company money, etc. This doesn’t even include the potential for lawsuits or WCB increases. Not many investments can protect a company and provide a 3-10x ROI.
What Can We Do For You?
Safety is a large topic and has an even larger amount of elements that need to work together to be effective. Devco specializes in Safety Awareness Programs and Services and can help any organization, no matter the size or scope, to have a safer job environment.

Safety Program Visual Design
We’ll take your existing information and give it a look that commands attention and creates retention.
Site Implementation Planning, Installation, and Training
The best designed and developed Safety Awareness Programs are useless if workers cannot engage. Installation locations, materials for construction, timing for information to be released, teaching managers, leads and workers how to communcate the language. These items are all key to the success of any Safety Awareness Program.
Monitoring and Review
Was your Safety Awareness Campaign successful? Are there changes that need / should happen for the next campaign? Gathering statistics and comparison to baselines and engaging on site staff for real world data lets you know the level of success for the campaign. This is a time consuming process that Devco can teach or perform on behalf of a customer.
