CHEP awarded gold as one of the safest employers in CanadaFriday, October 28, 2016
CHEP, a global provider of supply chain management solutions, has been named by Canadian Occupational Safety Magazine (COSM) as one of Canada’s safest employers. CHEP received the Gold Award in the retail and service sector at a gala event in Toronto on October 24, 2016. In 2015, CHEP received a Silver Award from the publication.
The COSM awards recognize companies from across Canada that promote the health and safety of their workers. This award is given in ten industry sector categories, ranging from hospitality to mining and natural resources. Companies are judged on several key performance indicators, including training, Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management systems, incident investigation, emergency preparedness and innovation.
“This award symbolizes our strong commitment to the health and safety of our employees,” said Paola Floris, the new Vice President and General Manager of CHEP Canada. “Our commitment to a culture of continuous improvement is the foundation of our occupational safety success, and we are honored to be recognized by Canadian Occupational Safety Magazine for the second year in a row.”
CHEP is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment and to preventing injuries or illness to its employees, customers, suppliers, contractors and the community.
Brambles, CHEP’s parent company, has long been committed to operating safe and efficient facilities. The company implemented the Zero Harm program across its business units as a way to apply best occupational health, safety and environment practices for employees, contractors, customers and local communities. The Zero Harm program measures safety performance through metrics like work related injuries and modified duties to ensure that each unit understands the impact these incidents have on our people and our operations.
