Exemplifying TNDC Values (Safety, Integrity, Respect, Diversity, High Performance)

Winner: Mark Luyben, Haul Truck Driver, Red Chris Crow Crew

Nominated By: Tom Payne, Equipment Trainer

Positive Behaviour Witnessed/Outcome:

Mark is always patiently training and mentoring new drivers, teaching them how to operate equipment correctly and safely, running through pre-trip and driving procedures. The result is new trainee drivers are always trained properly. I can also talk with Mark to discuss their training, so when I go to sign the new drivers off on the equipment they’re training on, it makes the process easier for me.

Going Above and Beyond (to solve a problem or get the job done)

Winner: Olive Lorimer, HR Site Advisor, Red Chris Wolf Crew

Nominated By: Rochelle Delaronde, HR Generalist

Positive Behaviour Witnessed/Outcome:

Olive has been a rock star since starting her role here with TNDC. She has caught onto processes, quickly and proven that she encompasses TNDC’s values in such a short period of time. Her attention to detail is superb. She is a great addition to the HR team.

Living and role modelling our Safety Values (Safety First, Safety Always)

Winner: Charles Walker, Heavy Equipment Operator, Red Chris Crow Crew

Nominated By: Neville Kean, HSE Coordinator

Positive Behaviour Witnessed/Outcome:

Practicing Gear Down (NewSafe Values). Chuck did not hesitate to stop work and communicate with other operators when he observed an unsafe condition because of a piece of equipment from another onsite contractor entering TNDC’s operator work front. Chuck then spoke to the other contractor. Together they came up with a safe plan so the two could work safely in the same work front.
