Carol Casey: Health and safety adviser in Alberta, age 31
Carol Casey is known among her peers as an outstanding advocate for safety, working hard to teach safety rather than simply enforce it.
A victim of recent COVID-19 layoffs, the CRST is currently working to complete her OH&S diploma at the University of Alberta.
Her pursuit of a career in workplace health and safety is with the intention of helping people.
“While employed in the office setting of the construction industry, a close friend was killed in a workplace accident and I decided to get into health and safety,” said Casey.
“I enjoy meeting new people and learning something new every day,” she said. “Working with people, understanding what they do and implementing safety together is very rewarding.”
For the past two years, Casey was employed by Pagnotta Industries, a construction management company in Edmonton.
She was nominated a record 16 times for OHS Canada’s Top 10 Under 40 award.
Nominators indicated Casey is passionate and knowledgeable regarding OH&S legislation and never misses an opportunity to further her education in workplace safety. She is also praised for being detail oriented and performing her work with devotion.
Casey is described as being well-respected by her colleagues, actively leading by example and taking initiative in establishing policies and procedures.
