Launched in 2011, Canada’s Safest Employers Awards recognize companies from all across Canada with outstanding accomplishments in promoting the health and safety of their workers.
BC’s tourism and hospitality companies are encouraged to apply under the award categories of Services or Transportation, as well as special awards including:
- Psychological Safety Award

Companies are judged on a wide range of occupational health and safety (OHS) elements, including employee training, OHS management systems, incident investigation, emergency preparedness and innovative health and safety initiatives. To be eligible for these awards, the nominating business must have been an employer in Canada for the last five years or more and have at least 20 employees.
