“We make it our business to be experts in safety to ensure LEAD trade workers are properly educated in safe worksite practice and LEAD clients receive skilled, trained quality workers,” says LEAD General Manager Scott Boddy. “The amount of safety training and skilled experience a trade worker has can make a huge difference in a company’s safety risk.”
