Stantec Receives Alaska Governor’s Safety Award of Excellence
The award criteria include the organization’s safety performance, injury/environmental investigation, commitment of both management and employees and health safety and environmental programs. Awards are based on health and safety statistics from 2016 to 2018.
In the past three years, Stantec’s Alaska offices had zero recordable injury and illness cases and zero environmental incidents. The firm’s Safer Together program is a factor in reduced workplace injuries. In the award nomination, Stantec described the program this way: “The goal of Safer Together is to shift our safety culture to one where everyone works together to be safe; at work, at home and in the communities we serve.”
“Being named one of the recipients of the Governor’s Safety Award of Excellence is an honor and speaks to how we value our most important asset — our employees,” said Tim Vig, Stantec Senior Principal in Anchorage. “It’s a recognition of a number of programs that we’ve developed over time that impact each employee. Having a leadership team that sets the example and having engaged employees shows in the safety record. As an office leader, this record is one of the things I am most proud of.”
