Safety First at Tbaytel
THUNDER BAY – Business – Safety First comes first at TBaytel. The Thunder Bay based company announced today that its employees reached a major milestone of achievement in accident prevention, having recently worked 500,000 hours without a recordable injury.
“With a workforce of 430 employees, health and safety is a top priority across all departments and at all levels of our organization,” says Tbaytel interim president and CEO Dan Topatigh. “Tbaytel’s staff, management and joint health and safety committee have all worked collectively to achieve this milestone and I commend them all on the commitment they have demonstrated to making our workplace a safe place.”
Tbaytel has become a recognized safety leader through its employee health and safety training program as well as prevention education initiatives, including its annual safety fair held each year to encourage local health and safety organizations and first responders to participate.
In recognition of the milestone, Tbaytel’s joint health and safety committee is making two donations to local non-profit organizations serving youth in northwestern Ontario. The Canadian Red Cross Student Nutrition program and the Thunder Bay Police Youth Corps will each receive a $2,500 donation to support ongoing programming and fund existing services offered.
“Tbaytel is pleased to be able to recognize the dedication of our employees with a contribution that we know will make a difference in the communities we serve,” adds Topatigh. “I have no doubt that Tbaytel’s employees will continue to promote and practice a culture of safety by leading by example both at work and in the community.”
