CCA is pleased to present Groupe C. Laganière (GCL) with the 2017 CCA National Safety Award.

GCL is a family business specializing in the identification and elimination of environmental risks. It is one of the 100 largest construction companies in Quebec and it recently celebrated 14 years – over 2 million hours worked – without any recordable incidents.

To reach GCL’s goal of “nobody gets hurt”, the company has implemented a strategy built on three pillars: qualify, equip and plan. Some of the metrics for GCL’s strategy include providing 500 hours of health and safety training, registering 250 new employees’ evaluations within the mentoring program as well as workers, supervisors, subcontractors and prevention agents reading and signing approximatively 4,000 job safety analyses in 2016. Instilling a «thinking before acting» corporate culture at GCL includes dedicating over 13,625 hours to building awareness in the form of daily tailgate safety meetings as well as 30-minute safety breaks every week for all workers.
