Bravo Target Safety to Create up to 500 Jobs in Coming Months



Bravo Target Safety, a leading provider of industrial and oilfield emergency response and safety services, announced that it will be creating up to 500 employment opportunities in the coming months.

From its seven locations in Alberta, Bravo Target Safety serves clients in the energy, chemical, mining and construction industries across Western Canada. Principal services include: turnarounds/shutdowns, emergency response, hydrocarbon firefighting and well control. The Bravo Target Safety team distinguishes itself by providing unrivaled service, support and response times.

In response to new and repeat business, Bravo Target Safety is recruiting women and men to serve as ‘safety support personnel’, responsible for the protection of people, the environment and assets in and around client sites. Safety support personnel will be deployed at turnarounds/shutdowns – scheduled events where the entire process unit of an industrial plant is taken off stream for an extended period for inspection, maintenance or overhaul.

Candidates will be assessed during Bravo Target Safety’s rigorous safety watch indoctrination program (SWIP), which includes classroom and practical skills training. SWIP is complemented by upfront eLearning and continuous on-the-job training and mentoring. Training sessions will be offered at Bravo Target Safety branches in Red Deer and Edmonton, and at an additional venue in Regina. Sessions will begin later this month and run through April. Field work will begin in late March and continue through June.

First time safety support personnel can expect to earn $7,500 per month, with experienced staff eligible to earn up to $9,000 per month. In many cases, work is based in remote areas where accommodation and meal plans are included. In principle, workers may choose to live virtually expense-free for the duration of their contracts.

“We’re pleased to report that we need to hire up to 500 people to keep pace with the demand from new and repeat clients,” says Kevin O’Brien, CEO, Bravo Target Safety. “This is a great opportunity for motivated individuals seeking short term employment and the chance to enter the energy services sector. Safety support roles may lead to further training and promotion, for example to supervisor, technician, rescue, firefighter or medic positions. We are actively recruiting from various communities and groups, including indigenous peoples, new Canadians and summer students. Simply put, we are looking for good people and the opportunity is open to anyone who is motivated to learn and work hard.”
