TORONTO—CHEP, a supply chain management solutions provider, has been named by Canadian Occupational Safety Magazine (COSM) as one of Canada’s safest employers.

CHEP received the Gold Award in the retail and service sector at a gala event in Toronto on October 24. In 2015, CHEP received a Silver Award from the publication.

The COSM awards recognize companies from across Canada that promote the health and safety of their workers. This award is given in ten industry sector categories, ranging from hospitality to mining and natural resources. Companies are judged on several key performance indicators, including training, Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management systems, incident investigation, emergency preparedness and innovation.

“This award symbolizes our strong commitment to the health and safety of our employees,” said Paola Floris, the new vice-president and general manager of CHEP Canada. “Our commitment to a culture of continuous improvement is the foundation of our occupational safety success, and we are honored to be recognized by Canadian Occupational Safety Magazine for the second year in a row.”

CHEP said that it’s committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment and to preventing injuries or illness to its employees, customers, suppliers, contractors and the community.
