NCC Reinforces its Commitment to Safety by Hiring New Health and Safety Officer

June 2021

Health and safety is of the utmost importance to NCC. One of NCC’s operational priorities is establishing and adhering to protocols and policies to ensure the health and safety of our employees and community stakeholders. In order to enhance its safety program and reinforce its commitment to the health and safety of its employees, NCC is pleased to announce the hiring of a new Health and Safety Officer, Barb Heming. This is a shared position with Qikiqtaaluk Corporation (QC), one of NCC’s shareholders.

Barb holds the designation of Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP) and has practiced as a safety professional in several jurisdictions across Canada including Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. She has worked in a variety of industries including residential and commercial construction, oil and gas, retail, agriculture and municipal and territorial government. Barb has been living in Iqaluit since 2017. Before joining NCC and QC, she worked for the Workers’ Safety and Compensation Commission (WSCC) as a Senior Occupational Health and Safety Inspector for 3.5 years. Barb most recently worked with the Government of Nunavut as the Territorial Occupational Health and Safety Coordinator.

Barb is passionate about Occupational Health and Safety and believes that by working together and implementing solid safety strategies, we can collectively reduce workplace injuries and incidents and ensure that every worker makes it home to their families at the end of each shift.

NCC management is looking forward to the enhanced health and safety initiatives that Barb will be leading for both NCC and QC.
