Protecting our workers and the environment

December 11, 2018 Brendan Ellingham


All accidents are preventable. That’s our philosophy, and to deliver on it we:

Provide a safe work environment
Training and work systems required for employees to carry out their work safely
Comply with all safety and laws and regulations as a minimum
Maintain and continually develop our Health & Safety System
Measure system effectiveness
Continuously demonstrate improved health & safety performance

Tools such as 5S, reporting unsafe acts and conditions, and ergonomic assessments are all used in the pursuit of the ZERO accident philosophy


Canplas is committed to protecting our environment by adhering to the fundamentals of 3R programs (Recover, Recycle, Re-use) and by continually improving our manufacturing process. We’re actively involved in our industry, within government regulating bodies and with organizations tasked with developing standards and setting industry codes.

As a plastics producer we reduce and recycle all process waste. We’ve developed many newer hot runner molds that have zero process waste, and are now reusing plastic waste in the form of purges and dust back into the process. Canplas recognizes its responsibility and is continually striving to reduce the environmental impact of the work we do and the products we create.
