Thunder Bay’s Tom Jones Corporation Wins Ontario Health & Safety Award

Tom Jones Corporations leadership in health and safety has been honoured with the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association’s President’s Award.

The Northern Ontario construction company, with headquarters in Thunder Bay, was one of nine companies in the province to be honoured with the prestigious award. The award is presented annually for achieving excellence in workplace safety culture by reaching more than 250,000 hours worked without a lost-time injury.

Parker Jones, president of Tom Jones Corporation says,“health and safety is always the top priority at Tom Jones Corporation. This award recognizes every employee in our organization—from the office to the field—who has committed to ensuring an excellent health and safety record for employees, subcontractors, and site visitors. Our people work together every day to ensure that every work site is free of injury. An injury free workplace allows our firm to remain competitive and ultimately deliver value to our clients.”

This year represents a historic milestone for Tom Jones Corporation as they celebrate 50 years of business operations. Since 1967, the corporation has successfully completed hundreds of complex construction projects for clients in Thunder Bay and across the region in diverse industrial, commercial, institutional, and design-build sectors.

“For 50 years, Tom Jones Corporation has recognized the importance of workplace health and safety. We have developed a leading-edge, best practice-based health and safety program to lead by example in an inherently hazardous and risk-filled industry. This award is real validation and the incentive we need to continue to raise standards within the Ontario construction industry,” says Jones.
