  • Diversity

Proper safety standards in the workplace are crucial for employees' wellbeing. These standards can vary depending on the industry, but there are some universal guidelines that all employers should follow. For example, employers should provide a safe and secure environment for their employees, train them on operating machinery or equipment safely and responsibly, and give employees the resources they need to do their job correctly and safely.

At Flint, we believe that everybody deserves a chance at greatness. As an Energy Industry leader with over 50 years of experience, we know that the road to success is not always a straight and easy one.

\We believe in supporting our communities so we can contribute to their growth and social, professional, and environmental development. One way to do that is just by being empathetic. The better way to do that is by proactively participating in meaningful charities and sponsorships, which will change lives.

It's been a long time coming, but Canada's leading event for turnaround and shutdowns is returning to Calgary this December! Being part of the turnaround and shutdown industry, we all know both are unavoidable and necessary.

As you know, winter in Alberta can be brutal - blizzards, freezing temperatures and icy conditions. Severe changes in the weather are common for us. We can have snowfall as early as October. Knowing how to be prepared for winter weather before, during and after a storm can keep a business safe and continuously running.

Living in Canada, you have probably heard something about pipelines, whether in the news, regular conversation or many debates. In Canada, 97% of the natural gas and oil we use is delivered safely and efficiently by pipelines. But how are these pipelines put in place?

What is instrumentation?

Electrical and instrumentation are a subfield of electrical engineering that mainly focuses on measurements of process variables (such as temperature, pressure and volume) in industrial facilities and equipment management used for automated controls.

Flint builds and maintains world-class facilities; our end-to-end solutions include project and construction management, constructability and planning (advanced work packaging), the path of construction and 3D scanning, fabrication, construction, and commissioning. We are experts in executing each project safely and on schedule. Not many understand what goes into the construction of a facility, a few things that go into each successful project are:

Reclamation is the restoration or rehabilitation of land to bring it back into a more natural state after being damaged or altered in some way.

Remediation is the action of remedying something, in particular of reversing or stopping environmental damage.

Facility maintenance and turnarounds - also known as outages - are both unavoidable and necessary. This requires the facility to stop part or all its operations to maintain, replace or upgrade equipment. This process is a big challenge that owners face because a poorly planned shutdown can cause great losses to a company. However, shutdowns that are executed effectively will have major positive impacts on the facility, increasing productivity and financial outcome.
