More than 4,500 hours were worked under Mike Lordeman’s supervision last year without any lost days or recordable injuries.

Lordeman brought more than 20 years of construction experience to Aecon when he joined the company in 2008.

Since then he’s had both a yearlong deployment to Iraq and the opportunity to grow in his safety expertise under the guidance of Aecon’s safety manager, Dan Friess.

Lordeman manages the yard equipment, maintains client relationships and enforces Aecon’s safety program — all while completing his own renovation projects in fully operational casinos. Working closely with clients’ employees and the public, Lordeman has developed several site-specific safety plans for projects built in and around occupied spaces.

Lordeman also conducts safety talks and training sessions on site. He has completed 30 hours of OSHA training, and in 2009 more than 4,500 hours were worked under Lordeman’s supervision without any lost days or recordable injuries.

According to Aecon Vice President Neal Ruud, “One of Aecon’s strongest beliefs is to make sure that each and every worker makes it home safely to their families each night. Mike has embraced this belief and is taking the right steps to make sure it happens.”
