Children's Hospital of Saskatchewan Construction Resumes
Wednesday, August 10, 2016
Statement from Dan Florizone, President and CEO, Saskatoon Health Region
Construction on the Children's Hospital of Saskatchewan is resuming today. It was halted nearly three weeks ago after the tragic death of a young worker on the site.
Since that very sad day, inspections and investigations by Saskatchewan Occupational Health and Safety and Graham Construction have taken place.
Graham continues to undergo a very thorough process to understand what went wrong, and how to ensure it never happens again. They have not only met the requirements set out by the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, but have performed a very detailed internal review, and we are confident that all the right steps have been taken. Graham recognizes that long-term vigilance will be required to make and keep the site safe for everyone every day.
