People living in regions all over Alberta have the opportunity to acknowledge the hard-working contributors to safety in their own communities with nominations now open for the Alberta Construction Safety Association’s (ACSA) Annual Achievement Awards.
The Awards recognize the outstanding innovations and achievements of individuals and companies from the Alberta construction industry, along with their unique contribution to their community. The event covers the regions of Edmonton, Calgary, Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Lakeland, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Parkland.
Executive Director of the ACSA, Dan MacLennan, said showcasing the good news stories was an important motivator for those working in an industry where safety is not just a priority, but a value.
“This long standing tradition of acknowledging our successes in safety throughout the province is incredibly important, it shines a light on the value of safety and the hard-working individuals and companies upholding it.
“What better way to give back and show your gratitude to those committed to keeping your construction community safe than to send in a nomination for this distinguished provincial Award,” said Mr MacLennan.
The Awards will be presented across four categories: Pacesetter, Trailblazer, NCSO of the Year, and HSA of the Year. They provide opportunities for eight regions in Alberta to nominate both individuals and companies who go above and beyond the norm to build a culture of safety.
Over 200 delegates are anticipated to attend the Awards, with audience members comprised of key supervisors and decision-makers from the health and safety profession within the Alberta construction industry.
The nominations deadline has been extended to now close on Friday, December 23, 2016. Forms can be downloaded from the ACSA website at www.youracsa.ca/news-events/annual-gala-awards.
The Awards event will be held on Saturday, 11 March 2017 at the Edmonton Marriott, River Cree Resort and tickets will be made available in the New Year.
