On August 24, employees at our Thunder Bay/Fort William First Nation (Ontario) sawmill celebrated an important safety milestone: 500,000 consecutive work hours injury-free. Through Resolute’s Board of Directors Safety Award program, the employees earned $10,000 to donate to a local organization, and chose the Boys and Girls Club of Thunder Bay.
In this video clip on TBnewswatch.com, Alex Vaillant, the sawmill’s safety supervisor, expressed pride in his team. “We’re taking it one day at a time, one job at a time – making sure we’re looking out for each other on the floor, and everybody’s getting home safe,” he said.
Kudos to the Thunder Bay (Ontario) sawmill team! Keep up the good work!
