GO VIRTUAL AT THE REVAMPED CANADA’S SAFEST EMPLOYERS AWARDS


The Canada’s Safest Employers Awards have long been an unmissable part of the occupational health and safety profession’s calendar. And even though the current climate means we are not able to hold a physical event in 2020, we are determined to recognize the best and brightest companies and individuals championing workplace safety and wellness.

That’s why we’ve revamped the Canada’s Safest Employers gala as an all-new virtual experience that will bring the glitz, glamour and celebration directly to you, wherever you are.

Featuring the highly anticipated live announcement of winners, panel discussions with finalists, winner interviews and more, this year’s awards event will allow you to celebrate the industry’s success virtually with the nation’s leading OHS professionals, as well as engage, communicate and connect with your peers and the wider OHS community.

So stock up on your beverage of choice and get ready for the virtual celebration of the year!
