Tarpon Awarded Canada’s Safest Employers Award For Third Consecutive Year


A strong safety culture, innovative safety initiatives and impressive safety record, are just some of the reasons why Tarpon won silver in the oil and gas category of Canada’s Safest Employers Award on October 28, 2015.

“Safety has always been the primary goal at Tarpon, specifically ensuring everyone arrives home safely at the end of each day,” said Larry Warnock, director, HSE. “Tarpon employees and management work together to uphold our commitments and achieve that goal every day. It as honour to once again be recognized as one of Canada’s Safest Employers and reinforces our dedication to continue to be an employer of choice.”

Canada’s Safest Employers Award is held to recognize employers that have demonstrated a commitment to promoting and maintaining a culture of safety in their organization and in the communities in which they operate. Gold and silver awards are available for 10 categories ranging from health care to the oil and gas industry. As well, there are two additional award categories – wellness and psychological safety.

“Each year companies across Canada work diligently to ensure the health and well-being of their workforce,” said Amanda Silliker, editor, Canadian Occupational Safety magazine. “Canada’s Safest Employers awards recognize companies who are leaders in safety within their industries, promoting and encouraging a culture of health and safety in all aspects of their business. The awards celebrate organizations that lead by example and set the benchmark for other companies work towards.”

The 2015 winners of the Canada’s Safest Employers Award were honoured at the annual Gala Banquet in Toronto, Ontario on October 28, 2015. Attendees of the event heard from keynote speaker, Dave Fennell, director, Dave Fennell Safety Inc. and guest speaker the Honourable Kevin Flynn, Ontario Minister of Labour.

Canada’s Safest Employers awards are presented by Canadian Occupational Safety magazine, a Thomson Reuters business. Launched in 2011, the awards recognize Canadian companies with outstanding accomplishments in promoting the health and safety of their workers.
