Suncor Energy bans alcohol at work camps

Oilsands giant Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) is banning alcohol at all its worker camps in Alberta.

EDMONTON — Oilsands giant Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) is banning alcohol at all its worker camps in Alberta.

Suncor spokeswoman Shawn Davis says alcohol has always been banned at its Firebag site.

Starting on Sept. 1, the same rule will apply to its Borealis and Millennium lodges, just north of Fort McMurray.

Davis says the ban will help maintain a healthy atmosphere in the camps and will help avoid security problems.

In a memo sent to employees, Suncor says the changes are being made to ensure workers receive a consistent level of service.

Petro Canada, which has merged with Suncor, also bans alcohol at its worker camps.
