The driving principle behind Ball Construction’s health and safety management system is worker empowerment. We continually reinforce the principle that each worker can become a proactive member of a safe workplace.
As part of these ongoing efforts, Ball’s environmental health and safety manager, Suzanne Johnson, recently visited our project sites to discuss safe working conditions. She emphasized the importance of communication, the reporting of unsafe work conditions and the need for workers to look out for each other.
To determine worker knowledge and understanding, Suzanne incorporated a worker evaluation quiz that focused on working at heights and worker rights. After the test was completed, there was an open forum to review the answers. Workers who had all five sections correct were entered into a random draw for a Petro Canada gas card.
Ball continues to promote safety through education, training and worker empowerment. After all, everyone has the power to change unsafe conditions and improve their work environment.
