Platform scale operator Galina Sazina saw a third-party worker on the platform directing the movement of a truck. The worker was standing in the driver's blind spot and in the line of fire. Recognizing this as a Mobile Equipment HPE, Galina promptly notified the safety team. “Galina is one of five exceptional individuals we are recognizing for stopping work to address a safety issue and prevent a potential incident," explained Mike Snow, Global Safety Director. "By speaking up and taking a stand for safety, Galina exemplifies our value for safety and the integral role individual leadership plays in our pursuit of a zero-incident culture."

Edmonton has more than nine years without a lost time or restricted duty injury, thanks to initiatives like its worker-driven, peer-to-peer Behavioral Accident Prevention Program, Safety Thursdays for office staff and routine safety walks that place fresh eyes on common tasks to help spot potential safety improvements. “Edmonton was voted this year’s Best Global Facility from a group of outstanding Bunge facilities worldwide,” said Mike Snow. “Facility safety initiatives and the commitment and involvement of workers in our safety culture have driven and sustained Edmonton's excellent safety performance and set a strong example both within Bunge and the community at large.”
