Winner: Kelly Waddell, Collision Centre Manager- Murray Chevrolet

Kelly Waddell has been part of the Murray Chevrolet family for almost 8 years. As the Collision Centre Manager, he leads the Safety Committee as the employer co-chair. He also supports safety in his roll as the chair of the MVSAM/S2 Safety Cousel.

Kelly's passion for safety was ignited when someone in the field was able to show him that safety can be incorporated into daily work practices. Through this, Kelly learned that safety is part of a successful business, and worked diligently with the committee, and leadership to put their safety program in place.

Dan Murray, Dealer Principal of Murray Chevrolet, nominated Kelly. HE expressed that without Kelly's dedication, they would not have become Manitoba's first dealership with SAFE Work Certification. "Kelly built the Murray Chev heath and safety  program from the ground up wit no previous heath and safety experience." From Dan's perspective, Kelly has been a committed safety leader and advocate in the dealership.
