Flint has maintained a local presence in Fort McMurray for 40 years. In March 2021, Flint Energy Services and the Fort McMurray First Nation Group of Companies entered into a joint-venture agreement with the purpose of creating employment and training opportunities for citizens of the Nation and expanding community investment to support capacity building within the Fort McMurray 468 First Nation.

How To Prepare for Maintenance

An event common to operating facilities in several industries including oil and gas, chemical, mining, pulp and paper, and nuclear, turnarounds are scheduled periods of non-production allowing for the required maintenance of the mechanical and electrical components of an operating facility. Scheduled far in advance of execution, plant turnaround frequency and duration is based in part on the maintenance schedule for the components of the facility. The prescribed maintenance schedule is aligned with standards, specifications, and warranty requirements provided by equipment or plant component manufacturers, as well as regulatory requirements implemented by the applicable regulatory bodies.

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.
