Congratulations to Leeanne Koshykowski, PNHR's own Safe Worker!

Leeanne Koshykowski, a special care aide for the River Heights Lodge in North Battleford, is WorkSafe Saskatchewan's 2012 Safe Worker Award winner. Leeanne’s mission is to improve safety through prevention. She championed a program to get power cords and call bell cords out of the way and secure them to the walls. This improved safety for residents, staff, volunteers and visitors.

Leeanne’s idea was cost effective and quickly implemented, but it had a big impact on slip, trip and fall injuries. Her prevention advocacy has shifted the safety culture at work – workers talk safety and are encouraged to suggest new safety ideas. (Source: http://www.wcbsask.com/)

"Workplace safety is everyone's responsibility, and Leeanne exemplifies this," says Joyce Hannah-Paulhus, Prairie North's director of health safety. "PNHR's third-highest cause of workplace injuries is slip, trip and falls. Leanne identified this as a hazard and put an audit in place to reduce injuries. She walks the talk and always has safety in mind. She certainly deserves this high-profile recognititon."
