INSURANCE | BONDING | CAPITAL | PRE-QUALIFIED
A company's philosophy relating to managing contingent risks, especially in an operation such as hazardous materials abatement, can be quite indicative of the caliber and capabilities of that firm. We provide excellent insurance coverage tailored specifically to the type of projects our clients need.
Our policies include:
- Commercial General Liability
- Pollution Coverage with special inclusions for Asbestos Abatement
- All workers are insured through Workers Compensation coverage.
By dedicating significant resources to our policies and process regarding implementation and administration of our insurance program, we are able to professionally address risks in the form of risk management.
Regulators place an explicit duty on owners and employers to do their “due diligence” in regards to risk management at their facilities or job sites.
The OH&S legislation across Canada gives employers and work site owners duties and responsibilities for their own directly hired workers as well as for the workers of other contractors. Although this is accomplished in different ways in each province, the same result follows. Some jurisdictions, such as the Yukon, Nova Scotia and Ontario, expressly define "employer" to mean a person who employs one or more workers or who contracts for the services of one or more workers, to perform work or supply services.
FINANCIAL GUARANTEE THROUGH PERFORMANCE BONDING
Enviro-Vac has taken the additional steps to acquire contract performance bonding. This offers our clients the additional assurance that Enviro-Vac will complete their work. In order to qualify for performance bonding, Enviro-Vac must adhere to stringent criteria of the bonding company with respect to our financial operating condition and guarantee of directors.
Enviro-Vac is capable of providing bid bonds and performance bonds; as well as, labour and material payment bonds for the plethora of work we undertake. Enviro-Vac is also required to post performance bonds when requested, and commendably maintain an excellent track record with its insurance & bonding company. The cost of bonding for environmental work is typically requested by the clients, as an assurance that work undertaken can be completed.
Enviro-Vac is well-capitalized, as we own and maintain a large inventory of proprietary and specialized equipment, including:
- HEPA vacuum loaders
- Automated baggers
- Surface preparation equipment
- Abrasive and shot blasters
- Disposal trucks and bins
- High-pressure washers
