Peterborough Utilities Group (PUG) is pleased to announce that they received the Gold Award for the Transportation & Utilities category at the Canada’s Safest Employers winner’s gala on September 6th at the Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex in Toronto.
Canada’s Safest Employers Award was launched in December 2010 by Canadian Occupational Safety, a Thomson Reuters business who initiated the awards program to recognize outstanding Canadian companies that are making a difference in promoting the health and safety of their workers.
There was tough competition and a rigorous selection process by a panel of nine judges. PowerStream Inc. and the Vancouver International Airport Authority received silver awards in the Transportation & Utilities category.
PUG believes that all workplace injuries, diseases and accidents are unacceptable and preventable as PUG continues to promote improvements toward a zero injury workplace. PUG has achieved more than six and a half years with no lost time injuries and closing in on an industry leading 2 million hours with no lost time injuries.
Accepting the award on behalf of PUG, John Stephenson, President & CEO stated, “While this award celebrates our accomplishments to date, we are mindful that safety risks do not take a day off. Tomorrow is another day and our collective pledge is to ensure that all employees return home to their families, without incident – which is the real award.”
