TSSA believes that making Ontario a safe place to work, live and play is a shared responsibility.

With a desire to go above and beyond established industry safety protocols, 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.

"W.O. Stinson & Son Ltd. shows true leadership in their dedication to safety," says John Marshall , TSSA's Director of Fuels Safety. "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."

Andrew Stone of D'Orazio Infrastructure Group Honoured with TSSA's Impact Safety Award
Early in his career, Andrew Stone was injured on the job while working as a carpenter which ignited a lifelong passion for workplace safety advocacy. Now responsible for more than 70 employees as Health, Safety and Environmental Manager at D'Orazio Infrastructure Group, 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," says John Marshall , TSSA's Director of Fuels Safety. "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."
