Resolute employees in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec have come to know Alexis Bolduc-Gagnon thanks to his unwavering commitment to safety. Superintendent of health and safety at our Dolbeau (Quebec) paper mill, Alexis recently won the Forest Products Association of Canada’s (FPAC) 2023 Rising Star Award.
The award recognizes young professionals in the forest products industry who bring passion to their work every day and who are making a unique contribution to their workplace. Alexis has only been with Resolute since 2019 but proved a quick study and gained considerable occupational health and safety knowledge while working at several of our Quebec pulp and paper mills, first as an intern at the Kénogami mill then at Gatineau and Saint-Félicien.
During the pandemic, Alexis played a pivotal role in the implementation of pandemic protocols. He later spearheaded the development of an impactful health and safety video widely disseminated to Resolute’s Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean workforce. In less than three years, Alexis moved from interning at Kénogami to becoming the youngest health and safety superintendent at Dolbeau.
Every operation where Alexis has worked has achieved 250,000 hours without a single recordable incident, thanks in no small part to this rising star’s contributions.
We appreciate Alexis’ commitment to safety and wish him continued success.
