Achieving Safety Success Together – Muskrat Falls Project Recognized with Health and Safety Distinction Award

April 30, 2019 РNalcor and Trades NL were recently honoured with a prestigious Health and Safety Distinction Award from Canada’s Building Trades Unions (CBTU).

The CBTU selected the Muskrat Falls Project for our dedication and commitment to health and safety. The project received one of the four distinction awards that recognize the contributions of industry for their demonstrated commitment to support, build and transform the lives of Canadians through leadership development, skill growth, positive community impact, personal accountability or health and safety.

In March 2019, the Muskrat Falls Project achieved two years without a lost-time incident. This month, we reached more than 15 million hours worked without a lost-time incident.

We are honoured to be selected by the CBTU for our commitment to safety.

The CBTU handed out four Distinction Awards in celebration of labour leaders, construction owners, employers and government who have made significant contributions to their fields and supported nation building through creating sustainable development approaches that transform the lives of Canadians. CBTU is an alliance of 14 international unions in the construction, maintenance and fabrication industries that collectively represent over half a million skilled trades workers in Canada.
