Randy Balzer and Joel Van Es, Owners

Zero Environmental provides environmental abatement, building services and specialized cleaning in Kitchener. The company has over 50 combined years of experience and the expertise to safely manage and remove most common hazardous materials, including mould and asbestos. Zero Environmental has a strong health and safety culture where management leads by example, involves all employees and recognizes employees quarterly for their safe practices in the workplace.

Much of their success can be attributed to a well-established health and safety communication program, including weekly safety meetings which are mandatory for all employees (including safety talks, safe work procedures and discussion of actual or potential workplace hazards), monthly safety emails, resources inserted into pay cheques and three communication boards with safety information.

Randy Balzer and Joel Van Es are committed co-owners, along with their project managers and further committed to their vision of safety by hiring a dedicated health and safety coordinator. Zero Environmental is a member of the Grand Valley Construction Association Safety Group.
