I Believe in Mission: Zero

 

Mission: Zero Awards 2016

Improving our workplaces, homes and communities in ways that predict and prevent injuries is admirable.

Many in Saskatchewan are doing just that. Inspiring examples of leadership and innovation exist throughout the province.

The Mission: Zero Awards were created to recognize that important work. They are awarded to those workplaces that demonstrate a sustained improvement in their injury rate over time and that influence a transformation in their organizational culture so that injury prevention is a core value.

Three categories of Mission: Zero Awards exist: small, medium and large employers. A winner is chosen in each of the categories. Those winners are announced during the annual Health and Safety Leadership Charter event.

 

 

The Mission: Zero Awards will no doubt be a source of pride for the workplaces earning them. But all the finalists in each category are to be commended. They are contributing to the growth of a culture of health and safety in Saskatchewan.

Below are profiles of each Mission: Zero Awards finalist outlining their actions and aspirations so that other organizations can learn from their examples.
