Safety Update: Supervisors' Role in Young Workers' Safety

At the panel session, Perruzza was joined by other speakers including: Roy Ford provincial specialist with the Ministry of Labour; Rhonda Bridger, an assistant director with the WSIB; Joel Rabideau, senior manager of corporate health and safety business integration at clothing retailer GAP Inc.
Echoing Perruzza's statement, Rabideau says young workers should not be left alone. He relates how his company requires supervisors to keep a watchful eye on their employees, as they bear the responsibility if any accidents occur. "When we put this due diligence program into effect, we lost over 100 supervisors in one day, who opted to take another position with less responsibility," Rabideau recalled. Having that kind of weight on their shoulders may seem too much for some of his supervisors, but Rabideau believes that with the correct orientation, safety training, mentoring and accurate observation the workplace can be accident-free.
