Veronica Suszynski is a portfolio leader at SAFE Work Manitoba in the Support Services Portfolio, which provides service to all Manitoba employers in the areas of occupational hygiene, musculoskeletal injuries and preventing young worker injuries. The Support Services Portfolio was part of the team that created the Young Worker Injury Prevention Strategy in December 2015. This strategy outlines tactics to be completed over the next three years to reduce the nearly 5,000 injuries to young workers in Manitoba each year.
Suszynski is a member of CSSE and has completed the CHSC designation. She has worked for the WCB for over 30 years and during her career has held a variety of positions including: payment assessor, adjudicator and case manager. As a case manager, she helped many workers who suffered serious workplace injuries. It is Suszynski's hope that her work will help reduce the number of workplace injuries in Manitoba and make our province a safer place for all workers.
