Safe Employer Award
The 2020 WorkSafe Saskatchewan Safe Worker Award winner is Northern Mat & Bridge Limited Partnership, Yorkton, SK.
Northern Mat & Bridge Limited Partnership (NMB) was chosen as this year’s safe employer because they believe and practice active participation, training and education for the elimination of workplace injuries.
They have a health, safety and environment (HSE) incentive program to recognize and reward staff for outstanding safety practices like hazard identification, near-miss reports, positive observations, coaching, exceptional driving behaviour reports and an overall safety commitment that empowers their staff to eliminate injuries in the workplace.
Most recently, NMB led in the development of a magnetic grapple system to reduce incidents related to work near overhead powerlines.
Our Safe Employer finalists are:
Triple A Directional Drilling Ltd.
Pryme Iron Inc.
Congratulations to the winners and finalists.

Employers that promote health and safety as their company’s core value know there are rewards in terms of improving employee morale and reducing costs from injuries, lost time and decreased productivity.
Every year, WorkSafe recognizes employers that exemplify a strong commitment to the health, safety and wellbeing of their workers, contractors and customers. Award entries are reviewed by a committee and are awarded at our spring Compensation Institute event.
