Safety is the cornerstone of the culture at Anchor Shoring and it is incorporated into every stage of what they do, from planning through execution. Anchor have achieved the Certificate of Recognition (COR(tm)) for their health and safety program. This is a national standard to assess employers health and safety management systems. The process to achieve certification involves extensive internal and external audits that evaluate how well an employer are able to identify, assess, and control risks to workers. An effective safety program involves the engagement of all personnel and Anchor is committed to ensuring that every member of the project team makes safe execution their first priority.

In order to provide a full range of services the original company of Anchor Shoring has evolved into several divisions and companies which form The Anchor Shoring Group of Companies;  Anchor Shoring & Caissons Ltd., Banner Piling & Excavating Limited and Crown Drilling Limited.   In January 2016 The Anchor Shoring Group was acquired by GFL Excavating Corp, a GFL Environmental Company.  As part of GFL, the Anchor Shoring Group has amalgamated Banner Piling and Crown Drilling and continues to operate under the Anchor Shoring & Caissons Ltd. name and will allow Anchor to provide an expanded scope of excavation and demolition services to clients through GFL.  Anchor’s management team members are thrilled to be part of this new chapter of Anchor’s future with the GFL team and have remained in their current roles.  Derrick Speakman and Dawn Tattle have become shareholders of GFL.

GFL and Anchor will continue to work in the same cooperative spirit with other trades that our clients may select on your projects and continue to honour the core values  of Anchor’s founders, hard work, ingenuity, mutual respect and honesty, as the pillars upon which successful business relationships are built.
