December 15, 2016 – The Ontario Electrical Safety Authority honoured Eaton’s Electrical Services and Systems and four other companies recently for its dedication to worker safety during its annual award program.
“At Eaton, safety comes first. This award recognizes that culture and commitment,” said Steve Boccadoro, senior vice-president and general manager, Eaton Electrical Canada. “We are proud of our efforts to enhance safety that helped the Eaton Electrical Services and Systems team achieve one million hours without a lost time injury from August 2015 to January 2016, and are pleased to share this award with our employees.”
The Electrical Safety Authority recognized Eaton’s “I Choose Zero” safety program efforts to achieve the goal of zero lost time due to injuries and enhance overall personnel safety in the workplace and at home. Eaton’s efforts include mentor training programs and ongoing health and safety education.
“We have a robust and systematic approach to electrical safety and continue to invest in the education, programs and innovation to enhance safety for our employees and customers,” said John Stampfel, vice-president and general manager, Electrical Engineering Services and Systems Division. “It is our commitment to safety and knowledge of electrical power systems that has enabled our record of successful projects that help to modernize aging electrical systems and build new ones not only in Ontario, but across the Americas.”
