CEO Spotlight: Development of a Safety Culture within a Company
Roy Slack, President of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy & Petroleum (CIM) 2019-2020 and Director of Cementation Americas
 

When Cementation was founded in Canada in 1998, there was a focus from the start on safety. It was quickly realized that it takes more than a vision and mission statement to instill a safety culture that makes it to the face, where the greatest hazards are. Roy Slack, the founder and former President of Cementation will discuss the purposeful creation and development of the safety culture with Cementation, a company who is the Gold winner of the 2019 Canada's Safest Employers Awards in the Mining and Natural Resources category by Canadian Occupational Safety.
