Chris Herrera, Shop Foreman at Capital Ford Lincoln, was chosen as the recipient of this year’s S2SA Safety Champion Award for his dedication and passion in making his workplace a healthier and safer place to be! He was nominated for his high level of involvement and genuine concern for his coworkers’ overall safety.
Chris embodies what it means to be a Safety Champion, maintaining a safe work environment through hazard identification and control, as well as creating a strong safety culture through frequent and meaningful communication.
Capital Ford Lincoln is working towards SAFE Work Certification by developing, revising, and implementing safety policies and procedures, communicating safety information via Safety Talks, and ensuring staff receive the proper safety training. A driving force within their organization is the Safety Committee, where Chris and his team are conducting quarterly workplace inspections and ensuring all safety concerns are addressed. Capital Ford Lincoln has made a commitment to health and safety for their staff and customers. This is evident through the hard work of Chris and the rest of the Capital Ford Lincoln team.
The Safetys was created to present several Manitoba occupational safety and health awards at one signature event. It’s a cross-industry gala to recognize and reward Manitobans who go above and beyond to make their workplaces safer and healthier.
This year, due to COVID-19, The Safetys were held virtually. If you missed it, you can go to their website to see all the winners.
