Canada’s Safest Employers recently named Vancouver Airport Authority the second-safest employer in the transportation category among companies from across Canada.
Launched in 2010, this award program honours Canadian companies committed to preventing injuries and fostering a workplace culture of health and safety. Winners are determined by assessing an organization’s safety record, work culture and employee surveys. In 2012, more than ten Canadian companies earned accolades for health and safety measures, including on-the-job training and injury prevention policies.
Workplace safety is a core value of the Airport Authority’s work culture, and one that is shared by the many airport business partners operating at YVR.
