As an Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Consultant at Toronto Hydro, Eric Chudzinski’s role is part protector – of his colleagues and of the environment.

“I provide support, advice and guidance with respect to all EHS activities and programs at Toronto Hydro,” he said. “I work to help ensure health and safety risks are as low as reasonably possible as my primary goal is to prevent injuries and any negative impacts to the environment.”

Eric worked here as a co-op student before being hired in 2012. Since then he has grown his skills and worked his way up from EHS Associate to EHS Consultant. He credits the organization and his mentors with helping him grow professionally through their support and guidance, assigning him challenging and rewarding projects, and providing him the ability to attend conferences and courses. They have also been supportive when Eric has sought designations applicable to the industry and field. Working in a role in an industry that’s regularly changing is what keeps Eric interested.

“Within the environmental, health and safety field, I am able to actively learn and be involved with a vast number of subjects and industries,” he said. “Learning is continual, which keeps this career interesting and never repetitive.”

Eric is proud of how robust and comprehensive our EHS Management system is today. Working with others who share his belief in achieving zero – zero incidents and zero injuries – is one of the best parts of working at Toronto Hydro. He enjoys being part of a culture that goes the extra mile to help ensure everyone gets home safely at the end of each day.

“As I’ve progressed in my career, I have become more and more driven to protect life and the environment,” he said. “Knowing that I’ve done everything I can to help ensure my colleagues go home to their family and friends at the end of the day is really rewarding.”
