Lance Strong: EHS specialist at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) in Windsor, Ont., age 32

For the last eight years, Lance Strong has been demonstrating an extraordinary commitment to health and safety at the Fiat Chrysler assembly plant in Windsor, Ont.

He joined the organization as a temporary part-time worker on the assembly line and has worked his way up into a supervisory position, before eventually transitioning into his current health and safety role.

“I have always been interested in creating a safe and conducive working environment for all employees,” said Strong. “Safety is an integral part in everything I do, whether it be at home or at work — making the right choices that are aimed at creating a positive safety culture to prevent any accidents or incidents has been the key to my success.”

Strong is the lead of the joint health and safety committee in the auto plant, as well as the Safety Pillar team. He finds the interaction with the employees on the shop floor to be most gratifying.

“Our employees at FCA have a very strong safety culture and come up with innovative solutions to help resolve any of our safety concerns,” said Strong. “Working with them to resolve any of their health and safety concerns has always been my primary focus.”

“I am truly proud of the team that we have at the Windsor Assembly Plant and all of the hard work we have completed to ensure occupational health and safety is kept is an integral part in everything we do.”
