“Don’t be quiet about H&S. Let’s continue building momentum creating the best H&S culture we can!” – Corey Lofft, NCSO, Pomerleau, Regional Health & Safety Manager – GTA

February 21 and 22, 2018, Pomerleau ‘rallied the troops’ for its annual Health & Safety Quality Days in Toronto. With several speakers and an emphasis on raising the bar for safety excellence, employees had some interesting discussions about Pomerleau’s safety culture and taking the program to the next level.

Rob Ellis, MySafeWork, engaged the room and facilitated an enlightening discussion. One notable takeaway was Pomerleau’s commitment to supporting its team outside of the work environment. Group athletic challenges are designed to inspire togetherness, perseverance and camaraderie. Fostering a feeling of community amongst employees is a great way to build trust and encourage communication that spans across all tiers of an organization. When employees feel comfortable around senior management, and do not fear repercussions for speaking up about required health & safety improvements, companies experience long-term gains.
