If a Union Gas employee witnessed a neighbour climbing an unsecured ladder, he wouldn’t hesitate to approach him to say he was concerned about his safety and show him how to use the ladder properly, according to SatnamChana, manager of employee relations in Chatham, Ont.

“We believe people should go home the way they came and they should really push safety, be it at home or in the office environment,” he said. “It has become a part of our employees.”

This commitment to safety is the number one reason Union Gas made the 2012 Canada’s Top 100 Employers list published by Mediacorp Canada, he said.
