Best In Safety 2022

Here is a roundup of the award-winning organizations and professionals featured in our Special Reports

Throughout the year, our 30-strong Intelligence Unit researches a series of Special Reports, each showcasing the top-performing safety professionals and companies across a number of important categories. Over the past 12 months, 12,000 surveys have been sent to our readers across Canada. The culmination of all that reporting is our annual Best in Safety digital edition.

The Best in Safety recognizes the safety award winners from all of our special reports in 2022, which have already attracted 1.7 million online pageviews between them.

This important list provides a definitive annual collection of those who have delivered outstanding results, introduced new initiatives, refined existing working practices and also acted as a source of inspiration to colleagues.

Sherrard Kuzz LLP is one of the firms on the list. Managing director Rhonda Cohen says, “Our superpower is our team and the clients we have the privilege of serving. Our team and our clients make each other better. We also sincerely appreciate that our success as a firm can only be measured by the success of our clients. It’s never about us; it’s always about our clients.”

Another featured firm, Harris & Company LLP, echoes that. “Our depth of experience in the OH&S practice area is essential to providing advice that is practical and supports our clients in complying with their OH&S obligations, and our firm’s bench strength ensures that we are able to do so while providing prompt and direct advice,” says partner Andrew C. Wood.

As a global publisher, our Intelligence Unit dedicates itself to carrying out detailed research including harnessing our wide-ranging resources to canvass industry experts and knowledgeable sources to determine who is worthy of a place on the list. It was curated and published by Canadian Occupational Safety.

Below is the Best in Safety. We hope you enjoy discovering all of those who we believe are shining brightest and shaping the future of the safety industry.
