The ninth annual Saskatchewan Health and Safety Leadership charter event took place Wednesday at the Conexus Arts Centre.
50 safety leaders signed the charter this year, joining 620 other organizations that have signed in years passed to show they are working towards an injury-free workplace.
CEO of Safe Saskatchewan Gord Moker said leaders from the public and private sector gather once a year.
“To celebrate all the great accomplishments we’ve seen in lowering injury rates in Saskatchewan workplaces and on our highways,” Moker said. “And to take another deep breath because we have a lot more good work to do in preventing injuries and also preventing those countless hours of pain and suffering.”
Moker said this is a learning experience for all involved.
“If we can engage in a discussion with those who have maybe gone through the journey, and who have along way to go but have made some positive accomplishments, then we can gather together, exchange business cards and learn from the challenged and the successes of the leaders who have perhaps won a Mission Zero award.”
Those Mission Zero awards were also presented Wednesday, with winners in small, medium and large employer categories being announced.
