MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — The Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA) has announced its first board of directors.
The organization is comprised of seven sector-specific advisory councils and was created when the Transportation Health and Safety Council was merged with several other safety groups in January.
Representing workers from the transportation sector are: Bud McAulay and Peter Burgess of the Teamsters and Len Poirier of the Canadian Auto Workers. Representing transportation sector employers are: Tim Holdaway, Midland Transport; Stuart Morrish, UPS; Ted Dezsenyi, FedEx; and Barry House, FirstGroup.
“The composition of our governing body means that we will continue to be responsive to our clients’ needs,” said Michael Delisle, IHSA’s president and CEO. “We’re building IHSA so that we’ll be relentlessly focused on and driven by those needs.”
The new board gets to work this month, the association says, and will first elect co-chairs and officers before getting busy eliminating injuries and illnesses in the industries covered by IHSA.
