Aug. 4, 2011, Aurora, ON – The
votes are in and the winners have emerged. After rigorous screening by members
of the judging panel, the search for Canada’s Safest Employers has ended and
five companies from Canada’s manufacturing industry have earned the title of
Canada’s Safest Employers.
- Atotech Canada Ltd.
- CCI Thermal
Technologies, Inc. (Ontario)
- GE Aviation (Quebec)
Automation, Inc. (Ontario)
- Pratt & Whitney
Canada — Halifax (Nova Scotia)
In its inaugural year, the
search for Canada’s Safest Employers focused on the manufacturing industry.
Over 100 nominations were received from employers across the country. In
addition to the nomination forms—where nominees provided details of their
health and safety management system—qualified entrants were also asked to
complete a safety perception survey. The survey was administered to their
employees, and the results were provided to our judges for consideration.
The safety perception survey
provided a snapshot of how a company’s health and safety programs and policies
are viewed by their employees.
Safety is proud to announce the five
companies that emerged as the most exemplary in their safety performance and
therefore, deserving to be called Canada’s Safest Employers,” says Mari-Len De
Guzman, editor of Canadian Occupational Safety magazine, organizer of Canada’s Safest Employers
“The response to Canada’s
Safest Employers Award has been impressive. We reviewed over a hundred
submissions and commend all these companies for the work that they do in
keeping their workers and workplace safe.”
The award will be presented
to the winners at a gala dinner on Tuesday, September 27, 2011, at the Liberty
Grand Entertainment Complex in Toronto.
Canada’s Safest Employers
Award was launched in December 2010 as a program to recognize outstanding
