Chris Inkster awarded Ben Hume Leadership Award at the Safety Pinnacle Awards

The Safety Pinnacle Awards Gala recognizes the continuing achievements of organizations who have invested in achieving and maintaining certification of their safety management systems. It recognizes the safety innovators in the sector, and the teams and individuals who are driving safety excellence in the workplace.

Our president, Chris, was honoured to receive the Ben Hume Leadership award at this year’s gala.

“In business there’s lots of obstacles, but the last one that you need to worry about is whether or not somebody on your team gets to go home to their family at the end of the day. We have to keep it up. We have to make sure that our commitment is unwavering, and good things will happen as a result. We’re competitive in nature when it comes to business, but we cannot be competitive when it comes to safety.”


After receiving this prestigious award, the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC filmed a short video interviewing Chris about Freeport, their journey with injuries, safety decisions, responsibility, and transparency. Watch it here:
