Sarnia, Ont. – MEGlobal Canada ULC has been recognized for five straight years of outstanding safety with an Excellence in Safety award from the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC). The awards are sponsored by CIAC’s Safety Health Analysis Recognition and Exchange (SHARE) Network.

They are presented to members that have met the criteria for excellence in safety for five straight years. MEGlobal was one of only six companies in Canada to receive the recognition.

“This is tremendous recognition of the commitment MEGlobal’s employees and contractors have toward putting safety at the forefront of everything we do,” said North America Responsible Care and Quality Leader Andrew Maile. “It’s an impressive achievement, particularly when you consider the challenging environment we have faced over the last several years.”

The awards are based on 2021 year-end health and safety data collected from CIAC members and were announced on Oct. 27, 2022.

“Through sharing best practices and a commitment to continuous improvement, CIAC members have worked hard to reduce the incidents of workplace injuries and illnesses,” said Jeff Stevens, Director, Responsible Care at CIAC. “We congratulate our 2021 winners’ commitment to health and safety in the workplace.”
