Morguard is pleased to announce that it has been named as one of Canada’s Safest Employers for the eighth consecutive year. This year’s recognition, an Excellence Award in the Services Sector category, is a testament of Morguard’s commitment to providing a safe and healthy workplace. The award recognizes a robust Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) strategy and the ability to adapt to the changing environment caused by the pandemic and evolve to meet new needs and parameters.
Morguard’s award-winning safety strategy takes into consideration the distinctive elements of its teams and properties across the country, including the development of a workplace hazard identification and risk assessment (HIRA) tailored for retail, residential, office and industrial businesses, strong training embedded into the OHS program, and a robust and centralized risk management approach.
Morguard also believes that communicating safety awareness is a shared responsibility, essential to building a strong safety culture, and that employee engagement is pivotal to promoting the success of its OHS strategy. Through ambassadorship and front-line leadership, the company’s innovative employee engagement activities create a culture of knowledge sharing and recognition that meets the growing needs of its properties, people, and the environment.
Continuing to proactively seek out and embrace occupational health and safety opportunities is a key part of Morguard’s commitment to its employees. Teams across the organization recognize Morguard as a responsible employer, devoted to providing a safe environment, improving its health and safety metrics and evolving its strategy year-over-year.
