The Independent Contractors and Businesses Association (ICBA) and WorkSafeBC are pleased to announce the 2018 Gord Stewart Construction Workplace Health and Safety Innovation Award is now open for entries from eligible ICBA members and their employees.
The Workplace Health and Safety Innovation Award is presented annually to acknowledge individuals and companies for their efforts in the prevention of workplace incidents, injuries and illnesses. By honouring safety leaders and sharing their ideas ICBA and WorkSafeBC hope to encourage new programs, policies, and projects that improve the health and safety of workers.
For the purpose of these awards, innovation is defined as “a new, forward-thinking or new-to-B.C. idea implemented to create a safer, healthier work environment, which is unique in nature and stands apart from what is routine in the industry.”
The award recognizes the employee or team of employees who come up with an innovative program, policy, tool or project that demonstrates a proven accomplishment in the area of health and safety for the construction industry sector.
There is a $5,000 prize for the best submission and will be presented at the ICBA AGM dinner on Tuesday, November 20 at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.
All employees of ICBA member companies are eligible for the Annual Awards for Innovation in Workplace Health and Safety for Construction.
Nominations must be received by Nov. 1, 2018. Click HERE for a submission form.
