Blackline Safety is pleased to announce it is one of 26 companies honoured by Canadian Occupational Safety with a 2023 5-Star Safety Culture Award. This award shines a spotlight on organizations committed to ensuring the wellbeing of their employees and who deliver strong safety cultures time and time again through a diverse set of tools and workplace policies.
Meaghan Whitney, Chief People Officer at Blackline Safety, says the award validates the efforts Blackline Safety has undertaken globally to establish a culture of leadership, teamwork and accountability. A culture which sees the whole human – inside and outside of work – and cares for not just their physical safety, but their psychological wellness, too.
“Blackline Safety has engrained safety in every aspect of our culture – from how our connected safety technology helps customers give their workers the confidence to get their jobs done and return home safe, to how we support our own people.
“This recognition is especially impactful as part of the assessment comes from a safety culture satisfaction survey completed by our employees. We received an overall satisfaction rating of over 75 percent, and we take great pride in knowing Blackline Safety’s people view themselves as safety leaders and innovators.”
Natalie Hays, QHSE & Compliance Manager – UK & EU, says commitment to a strong safety culture, and a safe working environment, not only makes workers happy, but it is also proven to reduce stress in the workplace, improve productivity and lead to lower staff turnover.
“Blackline Safety encourages a fully collaborative and transparent health and safety culture to build a stronger workplace. One where all employees feel comfortable raising health and safety issues, can suggest important improvements, and have a voice when discussing their own safety and that of their colleagues.
“Blackline Safety Europe is accredited to the Achilles UVDB and FPAL standards which ensure we meet an absolute minimum in employee health & safety. In our last UVDB audit we were awarded a score of 100% for health and safety, an achievement we are very proud of as a team.”
Blackline is headquartered in Calgary, Canada, with offices in Kitchener (Ontario), the United Kingdom, France, United States and Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and employees over 400 people.
