Dufferin Aggregates, a division of Holcim (Canada) Inc., is proud to have been recognized as one of Canada's Safest Employers in 2014. This honour identifies Canadian companies that are making a difference in promoting the health and safety of their workers, and operating a safe and successful organization. Dufferin Aggregates was selected as silver winner in the mining and natural resources category. This is the second time in as many years that the company has been recognized by the Canada's Safest Employer program.
Apart from meeting criteria related to excellent safety performance, part of the nomination process for the program involved employees to complete an Employee Safety Perception Survey, which helps to gauge the safety culture at an organization and how successful the company has been in communicating and embedding health and safety at a grassroots level. Being selected as one of Canada's Safest Employers continues a positive trend for the company, and demonstrates the results of its philosophy of Zero Harm which encourages positive, proactive prevention to create a culture that demonstrates a commitment to every person going home safely at the end of every day.
