Cody Woolf: Director of health, safety and environment at Fillmore Construction Management in Edmonton, age 35

Before entering health and safety, Cody Woolf was employed as a provincial peace officer, ensuring commercial vehicles met provincial safety standards.

Persuaded his career experience would be an asset, he was convinced to leave law enforcement in favour of safety.

“I quickly recognized I had a passion for health and safety and enjoyed the social interaction of the profession,” said Woolf. “Since then, I have pursued additional HSE education and achieved some safety designations as well.”

Today, the CRSP manages the health and safety of 200 staff, and also develops policy for Fillmore Construction’s safety program.

The company’s commitment to investing in and promoting health and safety for all staff, while also producing building excellence for clientele, is very rewarding for Woolf.

“It is rewarding to see that health and safety is not just a priority at work, but is a value instilled in all employees, subcontractors and clients’ lives. I am proud to be a part of this energy and help lead the way.”

Woolf’s goal is to create a positive and safe work environment, striving to promote safety as not only a policy, but a lifestyle.

The support and trust of his team has made all the difference in making this a reality, he said.
