David Riga, winner of the Grands Prix de la CNESST
The City of Pointe-Claire is proud to announce that David Riga, an employee in the Public Works Department, won a prize in the Leader category at the Grands Prix de la CNESST during the national unveiling on November 30.
The Grands Prix de la CNESST aim to highlight the stars of prevention in labour standards, pay equity and occupational health and safety (OHS). These awards are given to people and organizations throughout Québec who are committed to improving their workplace.
The Leader category recognizes a worker and an employer representative who are inspiring role models among all Québec businesses (all types and sizes).
David Riga participated in creating the operational committee on which he sits. He is also part of the work team dedicated to analyzing the risks related to the tasks of his colleagues in the Public Works Department.
His approach and leadership have enabled the organization to foster a culture that facilitates and encourages communication, participation and innovation, particularly regarding occupational health and safety. Thanks to changes in the culture of the organization, the City and its employees can carry out numerous prevention and OHS initiatives.
