For the sixth year in a row, the Morguard Corporation was honoured as one of Canada’s safest employers through Canadian Occupational Safety, a Thomson Reuters Awards Program.
The real estate company received a silver award in the services category at a ceremony in Toronto on Oct. 18, 2018 for its ongoing commitment to the engagement of senior leaders, managers and employees across the organization.
“Morguard recognizes the importance of leading a robust occupational health and safety program to ensure our business, employees, tenants, vendors, and partners realize the benefits of our safety culture,” said K. Rai Sahi, Chairman and CEO, Morguard Corporation. “We embrace occupational health and safety as an opportunity to invest in the company and the wellbeing of all stakeholders in our communities.”
According to a press release, Morguard keeps safety at the forefront of all initiatives. This approach to risk management in occupational health and safety is key to maintaining a productive workforce, managing liability for property owners, and upholding a reputation as a landlord of choice Morguard said.
The firm also empowers all employees to be accountable for contributing to the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) system and providing feedback on how to improve it. Every year, the organization invests in educational programs and tools designed to keep people safe in Morguard’s owned and managed shopping centres, office buildings, industrial properties, hotels, and apartments.
