“Through sharing best practices and a commitment to continuous improvement, CIAC members have worked hard to reduce the incidents of workplace injuries and illnesses,” said Shannon Watt, Vice President of Sustainability at CIAC. “We congratulate our 2019 and 2020 winners’ commitment to health and safety in the workplace.”
Consistent with CIAC members’ roles as leaders in safety and occupational health, CIAC conducts the annual SHARE survey which measures, tracks, and communicates health and safety trends. It is used by the SHARE committee to drive continuous improvement and provide a forum for members to share information and experience related to occupational health and safety. The SHARE Network awards are based on 2019 and 2020 year-end health and safety data collected from CIAC members.
