Safety is our most important corporate value. That’s why we look for programs that will help protect the health and safety of everybody who plays a part in our operations and lives in the communities in which we operate.
The Alberta Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society (STARS) is a non-profit charitable organization that operates a fleet of helicopter air ambulances for the critically ill and injured.
STARS services communities within a 250-kilometre radius of Calgary, Edmonton and Grande Prairie. This accounts for about 90 percent of communities in Alberta and many in southeast B.C. ConocoPhillips Canada has operations in both these areas.
ConocoPhillips recently reached a new milestone in our history with STARS. We have donated $2 million in cumulative giving for the air ambulance service. Our employees are passionate about giving back to STARS (several employees’ lives have been saved) and the Grand Prairie office holds a yearly golf tournament, which raised over $38,000 for this life saving service.
In recognition for our contributions, three STARS helicopter tail fins display the ConocoPhillips logo.
Produced on working Alberta farms with financial support from ConocoPhillips Canada, the Farm Safety DVD is part of a province wide, school based learning program that helps to teach rural children in grades one through six about safety. Narrated by the local youth, the video depicts actual working situations on a variety of farming operations in the province and addresses the everyday issues and challenges experienced by farming families.
The video was an addition to the Safety Smarts program. The program is aimed at keeping rural children, their families and their communities safe and healthy.
