The PMC corporate safety officer, Sid Johnson, is visiting the region prior to the visit of CEO Les Walker. Mr. Johnson has requested a complete risk analysis of the top three risk projects in the region. The regional safety manager met with the SLA operations manager to select the top three risk projects.
