ST. CLAUDE AUTOBODY – Safety taken seriously

If you ever have the misfortune to require collision repair in the St. Claude area, you can rest assured that St. Claude Autobody will provide not only a world class experience, but one that has been SAFE Work Certified.

With the help of S2 Safety, St. Claude Autobody started their journey towards SAFE Work Certification, Manitoba’s safety and health certification standard that makes workplaces safer for both the employee and customer.  “We felt this certification was very important not only for the safety and well-being of our staff, but also to solidify our commitment to providing the best service possible for our customers” says Monique Bruneau, owner of St. Claude Autobody.  “By promoting a safe and enjoyable workplace for our staff, it creates a worry free work environment.  This allows them to focus 100% of their attention to returning our customer’s vehicles to pre-accident condition”

S2 Safety whose mandate it is to provide safety services to a variety of workplaces in Manitoba worked closely with St. Claude Autobody.  The process included creating an action plan of where improvements could be made, maintaining a safety program, passing an audit and then ultimately becoming SAFE Work Certified.

“St. Claude Autobody’s state of the art facility already had a significant amount of safety procedures already in place” said Mallory Corbett, Director of Safety at S2. “Our Senior Safety advisor who worked closely with owners Monique and Norm, saw at first glance that safety is truly embedded into their company’s philosophy. St. Claude Autobody empowers their employees to take the necessary steps in order to be safe.  It was a pleasure to work with a company that truly puts safety in the forefront.”
