Leslie E. Pallister
Safety Manager
FCA Group – Sterling Heights Assembly Plant
Sterling Heights, MI

“In 2017, our facility underwent a massive demolition and reconstruction initiative. There were nearly 4,000 construction workers onsite during that time. Leslie developed Contractor Safety Training and rolled it out to all contractors. She worked closely with the site safety representatives to ensure that every contractor worker received this training. As part of our Emergency Response Program, we conduct an evacuation drill each year. 2017 was unusual because 95 percent of the people onsite were contractors who wouldn’t ordinarily participate in such events. Leslie and her teams were able to successfully evacuate the entire facility in 11 minutes with 100 percent employee accountability.”
