Canadian Occupational Safety has recognized three contractors in its eighth annual Canada’s Safest Awards.
The Borger Group of Companies based in Calgary received the gold award in the construction category, while Kenaidan Contracting and Walsh Canada received silvers.
Borger also was recognized with the Health and Safety Culture Award, the top prize in Canada’s Safest Employers portfolio.
Thirty-one companies in 10 industry-specific categories were recognized at a gala event in Toronto on Oct. 18.
Companies are judged on a wide range of occupational health and safety elements including leadership commitment, employee training, OHS management systems, incident investigation, emergency preparedness and innovative health and safety initiatives.
The top prize of the evening is Canada’s Best Health and Safety Culture Award, which recognizes a company that not only has all everyone in its organization committed to safety (from C-suite executives to workers in the field), but also extends this passion for safety into the broader community.
