Lots of questions????

Thanks to everyone that came out to see us at the Civic Centre. I had a great time fielding many questions about the skill trades. It was great to see so many young people intersted in a career path that includes apprenticeships. Thanks to the organizing group and my fantastic hosts for the day. See you soon.

Safety first

Lately there has been a big shift towards health and safety in the construction sector. Companies are finding that they actually save money for having a safe workplace. Decreased W.S.I.B. premiums, happy and healthy workers are part of a smart business plan. At work I am on the Health and Safety committee. We have monthly meetings and bring new ideas to our employer. Getting involved is the best way to help protect yourself and other workers. I try to be a leader at work, just like on the track. Every time I climb through the window of my race car, we are prepared for what ever may come at us. Crashes, fires and other drivers are some of the dangers. Helmets, fire suits, extinguishers and radios help us with the first two. Any suggestions on what to do with the drivers? Come out and see the car and it's safety features at the Brantford Civic Centre on Nov 26 from 9:30am to 3:30pm. Look forward to seeing you there. Be safe, work smart, finish first. Safety first.
