Industrial Cleaning (Canada)

The challenge as we see it

Minimize downtime and maximize process efficiency while controlling costs and protecting workers, these are the goals of plant managers. Key to an efficient and safe operation is timely plant maintenance. This maintenance and cleaning of industrial sites involve a diverse set of skills and attention to detail to ensure safety requirements and regulatory compliance are met. Efficient and reliable services are needed to make sure industrial facilities are running at their highest quality.

Our differentiated value 

We have industrial cleaning and maintenance teams dedicated to your sites. These teams are led by experienced supervisors who serve as your primary point of contact for all projects. All of our field employees receive extensive operational, safety and competency training in our core services capabilities and our Touch Free Technologies portfolio. The health and safety of our employees and yours is of foremost consideration in every project, and our goal is to maintain a zero Total Recorded Incident Rate (TRIR).

Assigning dedicated Veolia crews, equipment and leadership to your plant can bring significant value to your organization. 

Some of the benefits include:

  • Veolia employees assigned to your plant that quickly learn your facility, safety regulations and operating procedures, resulting in less oversight and administrative responsibilities for your own employees
  • Simplified and more open lines of communications between our supervisors and your plant management teams, so your teams can focus on your core business
  • More efficient scheduling, safe operational delivery of service and reporting on key performance indicators and results
  • Reliable service quality and results
  • Best practices tracking and implementation, particularly among multi-site contracts


Veolia is uniquely positioned to service industry, government and commercial entities in improving performance, managing water, waste and energy.


Veolia's Goal Zero safety program encourages a leading indicator approach to identifying hazards before they happen. Our safety ratings have improved 35% over the last two years.
