SunZia Workforce Newsletter

Next Level Safety

Safety is the presence of defenses

Safety has been a centerpiece of our company since the company’s inception in 2009. Building a robust safety culture is a continual process of learning and refinement. “By planning for errors, Pattern’s safety practices go beyond prevention to proactively anticipate predictable issues, so the team is better prepared to handle them when they arise,” says Ben MacDonald, Pattern Energy’s senior director of health and safety.
