Revealed! Canada’s Safest Employers Awards winners 2020
Discover the winners of the 2020 CSE Awards!

2020 has been a tough year for everyone. COVID-19 has re-shaped our lives and impacted the way we do, well, pretty much everything! From work to grocery shopping, and even how we celebrate.

That is why this year, Canada’s Safest Employers Awards went virtual. This was also a special year for us, being the 10th anniversary of the CSE awards.

Our fabulous event took place yesterday. Over 450+ people took part in the celebrations, and got to attend our new panel sessions, listen to our insightful speakers, (virtually) mingle with fellow OHS professionals and, of course, find out the winners of the 2020 edition!

Here at COS, we would like to extend our hearty congratulations to our nominees and, of course, our stellar winners. Plus, a huge thank you our sponsors, who helped make the event so successful.
