I’ve been fortunate to work with exceptional people. One of them is Pattie Fair, a Prevention Officer with WorkSafe BC, and more recently, her dog Zak. I worked closely with Pattie on the Mexican Agriculture project, and several WorkSafeBC assignments throughout the Okanagan Valley. Pattie practices what she preaches, and takes a very personal approach to worker safety and hazard prevention. We should all be as passionate about our work as she is. As for Zak, he should certainly be considered for the role of mascot with WorkSafeBC. Here they are. Pattie, thanks for all your hospitality and support on my last Okanagan visit. Miss you both.
