Gelderman is serious about safety - and about recognizing our safety superheroes!
Yesterday, our Waterdown Branch and Support Centre had their monthly town halls. Every month, each person who has submitted a report is entered into a draw in their department, and the winner receives a $25 gift card. Nathan (President) was able to present 4 different people with a gift card to recognize their commitment to reporting near misses and hazards.
Our Health & Safety apps are new this year and we have seen more than 200 reports submitted since the beginning of the year! This is an incredible jump as normally we wouldn't see this many over the course of 2 years (according to Linda, our H&S Manager). Identifying the hazards is only the first step. Our process includes follow up to ensure that these hazards and "almost accidents" are not reported and forgotten. Our management team has a real task dealing with the follow up on all of these hazards - what a great challenge to have!

Since the harsh winter, you may have noticed some plant material is not looking very healthy compared to last year.
With the high amount of moisture in the form of snow, ice and rain, and cold temperatures, some of the plant material has died off. The best example to describe what has happened is if you were to leave your water lines outside exposed to the cold, the pipe would break. This is what has happened to the shoots of the plants. We are seeing growth starting off again from the bottom which means the shrubs are still alive and trying to re-grow.
Over the next month or so, our team will start to rejuvenate those bushes that are suffering and in the common element beds. It may take a couple of years for these plants to return to their original size, and there is no guarantee they will survive, but the deadwood will be removed.
Plant material that we have noticed so far that has been effected is Weigela, Mock Orange, Hydrangeas, Purple Leaf Sandcherries, Smoke Bushes and Privet, (click through for pictures of these plants) but there may be others.

It's that time of year again!
We've had a few beautiful days in the last couple of weeks, but when the delivery of flowers arrives, it's a clear sign that the warm weather is here to stay. Annuals will be planted over the next couple of weeks at our properties. Our crews can't wait to add a little color to your life!
