Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) recognizes W.O. Stinson & Son Ltd. and Andrew Stone of D’Orazio Infrastructure Group with Impact Safety Award.
According to the press release, family-run W.O. Stinson & Son has served customers in eastern Ontario and western Quebec as residential and commercial fuel and lubricant distributors for more than 80 years. The company launched a quality assurance program based on the idea that safety is everyone’s responsibility from top to bottom, and that all employees should be aware of the requirements and regulations related to their jobs.
“Their willingness to go above and beyond established standards makes them a clear success story when it comes to increasing safety where Ontarians live and work,” says John Marshall, TSSA’s Director of Fuels Safety in the organization’s press release.
Andrew Stone – health, safety and environmental manager at D’Orazio Infrastructure Group – was injured on the job while working as a carpenter early in his career which ignited a lifelong passion for workplace safety advocacy. Now responsible for more than 70 employees he ensures the safety of his company and the greater community. In addition to serving with several industry associations, he is a board member of the Ontario Regional Common Ground Alliance (ORCGA) where he is playing an instrumental role in developing a provincial plan to improve safety education and training for excavators when working around buried infrastructure.
“Andrew Stone is a dedicated safety advocate,” Marshall says. “His commitment to education and innovation is an excellent example of the type of leadership we are proud to highlight with our annual Impact Safety Award.”
