Better Safety Goals

During the months of February and March, BSG ran a daily Safety Trivia Blitz contest.  This was a fun and interactive way for our staff to review our Health and Safety Program.

 

As each day brought a new question, employees were reminded of the importance of putting safety first, especially as they performed their jobs. 

 

At the end of the contest, we celebrated the success of the safety blitz with the team enjoying a healthy lunch together. 

 

We are proud of the continued support of our staff, as we believe it is in the best interest of everyone to consider health and safety in every activity.
