In October, 2018 Ryerson received a Canada Safest Employers Silver Award from Canadian Occupational Safety magazine. The award recognizes outstanding accomplishments in promoting the health and safety of employees and students at the university. This national award judges organizations on a wide range of occupational health and safety elements.
This is the first time Ryerson has won this prestigious, national award.
As EHS Director Geeta Sharma has pointed out while professionals in EHS provide the vision and direction, safety is everyone’s responsibility, “Every member of Ryerson actively participates in safety. Our leaders have provided unwavering support, our DSOs, fire wardens and first aiders support their departments safety on a daily basis. Our employees and students engage by taking safety training, reporting safety hazards, and above all we look out for each other.”
This award is a culmination of the hard work and commitment to safety from the Ryerson community.
