Dufferin Aggregates was recognized as one of Canada’s Safest Employers in 2014.

The honour identifies Canadian companies that are making a difference in promoting the health and safety of their workers, and operating a safe and successful organization.

Dufferin Aggregates, a member of Landscape Ontario, was selected as silver winner in the mining and natural resources category. This is the second time in as many years that the company has been recognized by the Canada’s Safest Employer program.

Apart from meeting criteria related to excellent safety performance, part of the nomination process for the program involved employees completing an Employee Safety Perception Survey. This gauges the safety culture at an organization and how successful the company has been in communicating and embedding health and safety at a grassroots level.  

Being selected as one of Canada’s Safest Employers continues a positive trend for the company, and demonstrates the results of its philosophy of Zero Harm, which encourages positive, proactive prevention to create a culture that demonstrates a commitment to every person going home safely at the end of every day.

“Achieving our vision of Zero Harm is an everyday challenge. I am proud of Dufferin Aggregates’ employees who have integrated their commitment to this goal into everything they do. They have embraced our vision and understand that our goal can only be reached if we all contribute individually and as a team,” said Ed Persico, General Manager.

Canada’s Safest Employers’ Awards 2014 winners were announced at a gala in Toronto on Oct. 28.
