NWP put on the short list for Canada’s Safest Employer Competition

I recently decided to nominate NWP in the Canadian Occupational Safety magazine’s competition for Canada’s Safest Employer.  They asked a number of questions on the submission looking at overall Health & Safety Stats, program support and then a statement of why I felt we were one of Canada’s Safest Employers.

As an HSE Professional I have worked in several varied sectors and never before, have I encountered a safety culture that matches NWP Industries!  I enjoyed almost immediate “buy in” from the Supervisory staff that was followed by the floor staff almost as fast.  The most amazing thing I encountered, for a company this size, was the support of management in developing a very proactive health and safety rapport with all levels of staff and the ability to innovate and build the program right from the start.

I was not altogether surprised when I got a call from Canadian Occupational Safety yesterday telling me we had made the short list on the strength of our submission.  I was extremely happy that someone else shared my opinion about this company!!  The statistics I submitted spoke volumes as currently we outperform a good number of our industry peers when it comes to keeping our employees safe!

We have now entered into the second phase of judging and I am very proud to be associated with such a strong group of individuals that support and promote working safe!  It’s our Management and Staff as a whole that got us here.

    Dear All:

    I am very glad to hear that Safety is of primary importance. You see, my daughter, Chantelle Weum works for the plant in Innisfail, and she tells me that safety is something I do not have to worry about. A blessing.

    She’s on her way to becoming a Pipefitter. I would lay awake at night wondering if she is safe or not, then, she told me, ….Dad you have nothing to worry about,…! Stop worrying, it’s the safest place TOO work!

    I can sleep better now.

    Yours, Very Sincerely,

    George Weum
