Jordan Taylor: Health and safety manager at MP Lundy Construction in Ottawa, age 31
Jordan Taylor’s quick rise through the workplace health and safety ranks is more than following in his father’s footsteps — he truly has a passion for the profession.
“I can’t get enough of training and educating workers,” he said. “Putting my own personal touch on a training topic and spinning it into a fun and professional format that engages the group with a well-received message is extremely satisfying. Then I get to watch it be implemented in the workplace, ensuring safety for all — it’s fantastic.”
“I really cannot think of a more fulfilling career.”
Taylor’s father James is the president of Taylor’d Safety Consulting, working in the field since Jordan was a young boy.
“Having a resource with such a wealth of knowledge has to be one of the key factors (in terms of) how I got to where I am today,” said Jordan.
Recently, he and a co-partner created a new RFID health and safety product that intends to provide workers with advanced warnings through PPE such as watches and vests when working around heavy equipment and high traffic areas, alongside standard hazard awareness.
“I have always been the type of person who cares for others, who will put others before myself, so I’m motivated to ensure I do my part to inform and train workers to prevent workplace accidents,” he said.
“As a natural-born solution provider, workers can depend on me to provide them with the guidance, education, and the tools needed to complete their work safely.”
