Our Commitment to You

Scott Coburn


​In matters of occupational health and safety, SMC Geomatics sets an objective of zero workplace incidents.  We recognize that the use of PPE is not a satisfactory solution to a hazard and that it is only a last resort shield to protect the worker. Furthermore, we aim to eliminate, at the source, all risks and/or dangers. The  methods used by SMC Geomatics include, among others:

​Site specific hazard assessment, elimination and mitigation of risks;

Ensuring that employees are well informed and respect the legislation related to occupational health and safety;

​ Providing the framework to reduce occupational health and safety risks.

​Education

​Civil Engineering Technologist

Fanshawe College 2007-2010
This program provides training in both the municipal and structural areas. Training is provided in materials testing and computer-aided drafting. Municipal topics include the design and construction of water distribution systems, storm, and sanitary sewerage networks, storm water management, and highways. Theories for the treatment of water, sewage, and solid wastes are analyzed. Survey courses provide training in the use of high-tech survey equipment and techniques of plane surveying, as related to the Civil Engineering profession.

Experience

As a Senior Surveyor, I was responsible for completing daily task specific hazard assessment and mitigation prior to beginning any work. While working with earthworks I was responsible for heavy civil construction layout and as-constructed surveys. That work included construction of haul roads, light vehicle access roads, pipe benches, and SWM Ponds and ditches. While working with structures my duties included foundation and anchor bolt layout as well as pre-pour check on the forms.

GENIVAR - Owen Sound, ON 2008-2012

As a Civil Engineering Technologist, my duties included pre-engineering surveys, as-built surveys along with survey processing. I excelled at terrain model construction, point coordination for construction layout, cut-fill drawings and volume analysis. I also was responsible for on-site inspection and reporting ensuring quality assurance and quality control.
