Not be cold here because I hate seeing loss of life like this but I will never understand how the union could strike down drug testing up there which can help avoid incidents (not saying it's related to this incident)

They did that? I thought everyone has to be drug tested before going to work on any oil sands site. I had to pass one to get clearance for my current location but then I'm not union.


Sad to hear this guy died on the job though.

They are just going with the stats. Rare to have accidents that drugs are involved in.

It's like auto mobile accidents, rare to have booze involved in the majority of them.

I guess they could put little blow tubes on all the cars at the factory. Anyway the cops could just pull over anyone and demand a piss test right? Think of the lives saved.

Construction is actually pretty safe.

Most of the oil sites you only need to do a drug test to get the job and once you are on the job they do not drug test you unless their is an accident. There was a large push at point for random drug testing but people fought back saying it infringed on their freedoms/rights.

I doubt this had anything to do with drugs and was probably a live work station but the news post does not reveal any vital information into what happened.
