A local business was recently honoured.
MEGlobal was named one of Canada’s Safest Employers, winning gold in the chemistry category at a ceremony hosted by Thomson Reuters and Canadian Occupational Safety Magazine on October 18.
“This is a great honor for us, but it is also something that MEGlobal employees and contractors have earned through their commitment to safety in everything they do,” said Rocco Schurink, MEGlobal vice president of manufacturing.
The company has ethylene glycol manufacturing sites in Fort Saskatchewan and Prentiss, employing about 200 people. Ethylene glycol is used in the production of polyester fibres and antifreeze.
MEGlobal has not experienced a day-away-from-work injury for 3,475 days, a process safety incident for 2,679 days or a government reportable incident for 4,105 days.
The award is handed out based on safety procedures, leadership engagement, rigorous reporting standards and its dedication to the protection of people, communities and the environment.
