Safety professionals from across Canada were in Toronto on Oct. 30 to celebrate the third annual Canada’s Safest Employers Award. The awards are hosted by Canadian Occupational Safety Magazine, which recently saw a new editor take its helm — former Canadian HR Reporter senior editor Amanda Silliker.

“When I first started in this new job in August, one of the things I was looking forward to the most was participating in these awards,” Silliker told the more than 300 guests at the ceremony. “My favourite day on the job so far was probably the day I got to call all the winners and tell them they had won. It was great to hear how excited they were that their efforts in health and safety were being recognized.”

This year, the awards added six new categories to the roster, bringing the total number of awards to 11, including one recognizing outstanding achievement in workplace wellness.
