16 winners honoured at recent mining health and safety conference

This month at the annual mining health and safety conference in Sudbury, 16 mining companies were recognized for workplace excellence in health and safety. 

In order to qualify for a WSN Workplace Excellence Award, companies must complete an assessment of current health and safety programs, note areas for improvement, and develop an action plan to improve their safety performance. Workplace Excellence awards recognize firms actively engaged in continuous improvement.

All Workplace Excellence award winners are automatically considered for the President’s Award, to be presented at the WSN Annual General Meeting in September.
