“Sonia understands and respects that employees vary in their characters and culture. She uses this awareness to communicate effectively and comfortably with disparate trades and ethnicities to successfully address/resolve issues. She is confident in her defense of what is right. Sonia believes the most important part of her job is to help workers understand and believe that they are responsible for the safety of themselves and of their co-workers. This is accomplished through safety meetings, regular safety audits and working together with subcontractors to ensure they have a plan to the work in safest way possible before we get started.”
