Assure Occupational Testing Inc. is grateful to the Lloydminster community for 10 wonderful years in business!
“10 years is a milestone that could not have been achieved without the support of our amazing community and I am incredibly grateful.”
Jon Rokochy, Founder and CEO
Assure was founded in 2009, by Rokochy, who recognized a gap in the Lloydminster market for occupational testing. Rokochy was working as a manager at an addictions treatment centre at the time and was receiving many calls from oilfield companies who were looking for drug testing services and couldn’t find anywhere locally. In June of that year, Assure began meeting the need of safety-sensitive companies requiring drug and alcohol testing.
Safety-sensitive companies require many other types of testing, besides drug and alcohol, in order to maintain compliance with health and safety regulations, and Assure has expanded many times over the years to help those companies stay compliant.
In 2012, Assure began offering comprehensive health assessments with the addition of RN’s and LPN’s to the staff. In 2013, audio testing and pulmonary function testing were added to the list of services, and in 2014, mask fit testing was available to the public for the first time. 2015 saw the addition of substance abuse assessments which are key to assisting companies in creating a return-to-work plan for employees who are not in compliance with the company Substance Use Policy.
Assure has operated in a few locations in the city over the past 10 years and were pleased to secure their own permanent location with the purchase of their current office in Downtown Lloydminster, in 2014. With the acquisition of that property, Assure was able to expand their services even more, with the addition of fitness-for-duty health assessments, physician medicals and training courses.
The legalization of recreational cannabis in October of 2018 brought a new set of challenges to safety-sensitive companies and Assure has been a steady guide for companies as they navigate the many questions that go along with managing recreational and medical cannabis in the workplace. Assure hosted the “Cannabis & Workplace Safety Conference” in Lloydminster in May 2018, in partnership with the Lloydminster Chamber of Commerce. Assure has implemented two “Cannabis Awareness Training Sessions”, one for Employers and one for Employees, to assist companies in educating their staff on how to appropriately manage cannabis.
One of the most recent additions to Assure’s services is Substance Use Policy Development. “A clear, comprehensive substance use policy that is communicated clearly to all staff, goes a long way in minimizing workplace incidents,” says Rokochy.
Assure has established themselves as a leader in the occupational health industry in the Lloydminster area and has no plans on slowing down. When asked what’s next for Assure, Rokochy says, “Our industry is moving more and more online and people want on-demand access to training courses so we are currently working on getting our training courses online and we will also be adding completely new courses in the near future. We’ve also got new online content coming for our clients to keep them informed about developments in the health and safety industry so people can watch out for that on our website, in their inboxes and on our social media pages.”
To say thank-you to their clients for helping them achieve 10 Years in business, the Assure team is hosting a Customer Appreciation BBQ on Thursday, August 8th, 2019, in the parking lot next to their office at 4816 49thAve in Downtown Lloydminster. “We’re inviting all past and current clients, and their staff, as well as our fellow Downtown business neighbours to stop by for a burger, chips, pop and to enter into the Gift Basket draw and to just come say hi,” says Rokochy.
Assure also feels it is important to say thank-you to the Lloydminster community, as a whole, for their success. “I am so grateful to live in a community with such generous, helpful people. Our business has been blessed by this community and I believe we are blessed to be a blessing to others, so in honour of our 10 Years in business, we will be giving $10,000 back to local charities,” says Rokochy. The Assure staff has chosen 10 charities to give to and they will be presenting $1000 to each of those charities, a different one each month, over the next 10 months.
To our CLIENTS:
“I especially want to thank you for your business throughout the past 10 years. You have been critical to Assure’s growth and success in our 1st DECADE, and I look forward to working with you in the coming years”, Rokochy.
