Outfitting the working class in safety

Northern Lights Family Outfitters, based in Levering, MI, sells new, brand-name clothing to the working class at affordable prices. Safety is key for this Indigenous-owned small business, which sells boots, flame-resistant (FR) clothing and various other pieces of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to 75 companies. “Safety is in PPE—not just providing it, but actually wearing it,” says business owner Shannon. Northern Lights is Enbridge’s FR clothing supplier in the Great Lakes region, and Shannon says she appreciates Enbridge’s adherence to safety. “It’s the pride they take in their jobs, the pride they take in making sure things are done right,” she says. “I support the Great Lakes Tunnel Project. It’ll make a safe pipeline safer.”
