2019 Q3 Newsletter - Spotlight: Sutherland Excavating Ltd.

Almost 20 years ago, Sutherland Excavating Ltd. was formed with only four employees. Today, over 20 employees work together to provide services such as petroleum tank installation, oil spill response, contaminated site clean up, and heavy equipment services. 

Key to the company’s success has been investing in safety training. Sutherland is certified by the New Brunswick Construction Safety Association for over a decade and has worked hard to maintain it. 

“You have to be prepared and equipped to react when your services are needed” says Blake Sutherland, President. “That’s why all our employees take annual training and we keep our equipment up to date.”

Sutherland has been an LPG team with ERAC for about three years. Sutherland LPG team responders have shown a remarkable enthusiasm for learning in both online and hands-on training opportunities. Their openness to new ideas and continuous improvement has earned the respect of all ERAC instructors, earning them the 2019 ERAC Excellence in Training and Learning Award.
