Award categories

SAFEty Culture Award — This award goes to a workplace with a positive safety culture. Workplaces with positive safety cultures ensure that: safety and health concerns are addressed, leaders are committed to safety and health, trust and respect are essential in the work environment, everyone in the organization feels personally committed to and accountable for safety and health, the work environment is inclusive, and continuous learning is a feature of the organization. Anyone can nominate a workplace for a SAFEty Culture Award. 

Worker SAFEty Award — This award goes to an individual who is committed to safe work and is not a safety professional. Your nominee should be a safety champion who goes above and beyond to make others aware of workplace safety and health. Nominees should strive every day to make their workplace safer for themselves and their co-workers. Nominations for the Worker SAFEty Award will be accepted from any other individual in the same workplace.

​SAFEty and Health Committee Award — This award goes to a workplace safety and health committee that takes an active role in improving health and safety in the workplace. The committee members work as a team to spread safety and health messages and to resolve safety and health issues that arise. The committee's activities strengthen their workplace's culture of safety. Nominations for the SAFEty and Health Committee Award will be accepted from anyone in the workplace who is not a member of the committee. ​

2020 winners will be notified by early August 2020, and will be asked to participate in a video celebrating their award.
