Health & Safety
The health and safety of our employees is of the utmost importance to North Coast Services. Warehouse employees are required at all times to use personal protective equipment such as steel toe shoes, safety glasses and appropriate gloves. In addition, North Coast periodically evaluates the dismantling process to ensure that employees are not overly exposed to metals of concern.
