Canada's Safest Employers

Then celebrate your workplace’s commitment to health and safety by submitting a nomination for a Canada’s Safest Employers award. But act now. Nominations close Tuesday, June 24, 2014.

Canada's prestigious fourth annual safety awards — Canada's Safest Employers — recognizes employers in the following sectors that are making a difference in promoting the health and safety of their workers:

  • building and construction
  • health care
  • hospitality
  • manufacturing
  • mining and natural resources
  • oil and gas
  • public sector
  • retail and services
  • transportation
  • utilities
  • wellness.

WSPS president and CEO Elizabeth Mills — one of the competition’s judges — encourages WSPS member firms that are operating a safe and successful organization in Canada to submit a nomination today for any of these award categories:

  • Canada’s Safest Employer (general)
  • Canada’s Safest Employer: Wellness
  • New for 2014 — Canada’s Safest Employer: Psychological Safety.

“Creating a successful health and safety culture involves everyone in the workplace,” notes Elizabeth Mills. “So if your people are making a difference, then public recognition of their contribution would serve as a powerful reward as well as an incentive to continue.

“It also sends an important message to suppliers and customers that your operation is committed to achieving excellence.”
