Trojan Safety’s Core Values

The following values are at the heart of everything we do.

Show you care

Having a team that genuinely wants to help others is what we are all about—it’s why we love the safety business. We want to surround ourselves with people who take pride in going the extra mile and demonstrate courtesy, gratitude and humility.

Keep learning

If you’re no longer learning, it’s time to quit. Being curious about how things work and how to make them better not only makes the job interesting and engaging, it makes you more interesting and engaging. We are a team of innovators and “out of the box” thinkers. Where there’s a problem, there’s an innovative way to solve it.

Always on time

It’s about respect. On-time means you show up early and are ready to go before the promised start time. People notice when you’re on time, and they definitely notice when you’re late. Being on time is a key factor in building trust with our clients and co-workers. Let’s never violate that trust.


Being able to rely on your safety people goes without saying. We are well trained, and prepared and show up with the proper tools and equipment to get the job done right without excuses. If any issues arise, our clients can count on us to take care of them immediately.

It’s all about relationships

We live for great relationships, and in order to build those relationships, we consistently give more of ourselves than we ask of others. We inherently believe in putting our clients and colleagues first— it’s just the way we operate. We like people, we like having fun, and we love a good sense of humour, and it shows.
