A Message from Blaine
As the new year is upon us, I thank you all for your support and dedication, especially to those who burned the night oil and got things done. You went the extra mile on countless instances, and I can’t thank you enough for it.
I wish you the best.
Health & Safety Update
This year, two incidents have been reported involving property damage resulting in minor damages to a single-vehicle due to the icy road conditions.
It is important to drive according to the road conditions and with caution. Slow down, allow for extra travel time, and always stay alert.
Near Miss Definition
An unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage – but had the potential to do so.
Reporting near-miss incidents can significantly improve worker safety and enhance an organization’s safety culture by allowing changes to be implemented to prevent future incidents and injuries from occurring.
As the Government of Alberta moves to stage 2 of the reopening plan and with the City of Edmonton continuing its masking bylaw, it has created much confusion. It is important to remember that wearing a mask can help reduce your risk of infection and help protect others from being exposed to your germs.
As indicated in the Temporary Mandatory Face Coverings bylaw, masking requirements within Edmonton’s indoor public places and public vehicles continue to remain in place until further action is taken.
Outside of Edmonton, the Government of Alberta requires masking in high-risk settings across the province, including public transit, at AHS-operated and contracted facilities, and all continuing care facilities.
What do these changes mean to the GlobalTech Team?
*Masks are still required on all AHS projects, including continuing care facilities throughout Alberta.
*Continuous masking must be followed for up to 5 days following mandatory isolation due to COVID infection for vaccinated individuals throughout Alberta.
*Masks must be worn in all Edmonton indoor public spaces, including the main office, service office, and company vehicles.
Additionally, remember to practice good hand and respiratory hygiene and stay home when you are sick.
Adam Hughes would like to recognize Josh Moore and Fraser Hiebert as the GlobalTech Men of the Month.
“They have shown genuine commitment and understanding at the DND site. It hasn’t been an easy run for them, and they have shown the client how things can be smoothed out in a messy situation.
Due to their commitment, they were able to finish each building on time. With the help and support of our other GT family members, we have become the first successful company to complete a fire alarm project on this site without major incidents.”
Thank you, Josh & Fraser, for great work!

At the end of February, we said farewell to our Chief Financial Officer of the last seven years, Brian Robertson.
Brian, we have learned a lot from you during your time here. We wish you all the success for the future and we know you will rock in that new position.
Thank you. We look forward to seeing you around.
The Beard Off
The Roozen Beard Off fundraiser has come to a close. Brian thanks everyone for following along and for supporting the cause.
Brian’s family surpassed their goal of raising $16,000.00. They wanted to share their powerful experience at the Roozen Family Hospice Centre, where their mother spent the last 32 days of her wonderful life.
Brian explained, “Our mom was given the most wonderful and compassionate care while at the Roozen, and we want to do our part to pass on our thanks and ensure that many more families can have the end of life care that our family received.”
You can learn more about the fundraiser and Brian’s Family’s story here:
