“The safety culture at Forbes is unique”

Each and every person who works here believes in and supports our safety program. Not because they feel that they have to, but rather because they believe in it and feel/see the value in safety success. I know that my coworkers are looking out for me and vice versa.

J. Taylor – HSE Advisor, SK

“Forbes Bros is a family business and everyone treats you like family”

I really enjoy working with my team, we work in a fast-paced environment, but we still have fun. Forbes also takes the time to show they value their employees. You are not just a number. Forbes plans social activities throughout the year for their employees which I feel are very important to network with everyone.

The excellent leadership allows the team to create and present ideas for improved efficiency. They provide a beautiful work environment and technology to get the job done. I especially love the diverse company culture with people of all backgrounds and experiences.

“I would like to express my gratitude towards your company on completing your scope on the Pembina rail project on time and on budget”

I would like to express my gratitude towards your company on completing your scope on the Pembina rail project on time and on budget. Specifically, I want to mention that Forbes did not have any safety incidents on this project and that is rare. Considering the number of light poles Forbes installed (ground disturbance), fixtures/line installations (climbing poles) and working within a live rail yard (congested area) with numerous lines crossing live tracks. I’m pleased with the efforts from your company and I would refer Forbes to any company requiring your services.
