Horizon Utilities Corporation was recognized with the Infrastructure Health & Safety Association President’s Award for reaching another safety milestone – 750,000 hours without a lost-time injury.
This achievement, which is part of the company’s goal of becoming accident and injury free, was made possible through the commitment of all employees to make safety their number one priority.
Enzo Garritano, Acting President & CEO of Infrastructure Health & Safety Association (IHSA) made a special trip to Hamilton in order to present the IHSA President’s Award to Horizon Utilities’ President and CEO, Max Cananzi.
“Ensuring the safety of our employees, contractors and everyone in the communities we serve remains our top priority,” said Max Cananzi, President & CEO of Horizon Utilities. “This is an achievement every one of us can be proud of. This milestone in safety is a clear indication that every single one of our well-trained employees has made a personal commitment to working safely.”
Horizon Utilities’ commitment to safety is ongoing and is further strengthened through the implementation of the best-in-class health and safety management system, Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Z1000. Ensuring the safety of employees, contractors and everyone in the communities we serve remains a top priority for all employees.
“While 750,000 hours without a lost-time incident is an impressive accomplishment, what’s most important is that we continue to ensure that our employees return home safely to their families every day,” added Cananzi.
