After rigorous screening by members of the judging panel, five employers from Canada’s manufacturing industry have earned the title Canada’s Safest Employers.

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.

Canadian Occupational 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. Get to know Canada's Safest Employers for 2011.
