Saftey Leader Award

In an attempt to foster and promote a positive safety culture within the province’s workplaces, the Newfoundland & Labrador Occupational Health & Safety Association has developed an annual Safety Leader Award. The award has been in existence since 2017.

A Safety Leader consistently demonstrates a passion for safety and health and promotes safe working practices and safe behaviors in all that they do.  Making the right choice for the right reason (safety) thus preventing injury and illness is what sets a Safety Leader apart from others.  A Safety Leader continually demonstrates the value of working safely and conducts work safely and assists others to do the same.  By taking the time to effectively plan and schedule work tasks, jobs, projects, etc. and ensuring safety is “the priority”, a Safety Leader adds value and pride to any organization or group.
