Cementation Recognized in the LegislatureNovember 1, 2017
QUEEN’S PARK — Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli delivered a Members’ Statement in the Ontario Legislature today regarding a recent honour awarded to local mining firm Cementation.
Text of his statement is as follows:
Thank you Speaker.
I’m proud to rise today as the Ontario Mining Association joins us here at our Legislature. I want to recognize one of the great companies in my riding, Cementation, which was recently recognized as one of Canada’s Safest Employers for 2017.
The Canada’s Safest Employers Awards were launched in 2011 to cover 10 industry-specific categories, ranging from Hospitality to Mining and Natural Resources.
Cementation is a mine and facilities contracting and engineering company located in North Bay.
They were awarded the gold award in the Mining and Natural Resources category during the Canada’s Safest Employers Awards Gala, hosted by Canadian Occupational Safety and Thomson Reuters last week here in Toronto.
They were recognized for their five-year safety strategy, which was rolled out earlier this year and aims to improve the 700-employee company’s internal responsibility system and lower injury frequencies.
Last Friday, Speaker, we all had the extreme pleasure of taking part in the ribbon-cutting of their newest expansion in the city of North Bay.
I want to send my personal congratulations to President Roy Slack, and General Manager of Health and Safety Steve Wrixon, and all of Cementation’s employees who contribute to what Steve calls “the safety culture and structure” at Cementation.
