St. John’s, NL - The Workplace Health, Safety and Compensation Commission (the Commission), is currently seeking applications from small, medium and large employers across all industry sectors, for the 2008 CEO Leadership Charter.
The Charter was conceived on the principle that the effective management of health, safety and wellness is essential to the operation of a successful business. As ambassadors for safer workplaces, business leaders throughout Newfoundland and Labrador are asked to demonstrate their commitment to the prevention of accidents and promotion of health and safety in the workplace by becoming signatories of the Charter.
“The inaugural signing of the province’s first CEO Leadership Charter was a tremendous success, symbolizing a new era for occupational health and safety in our province,” said Leslie Galway, Chief Executive Officer. “The support of business leaders for a safer Newfoundland and Labrador is helping the Commission raise the bar by taking the focus on health and safety to a new level.”
To find out how you can become a signatory to the 2008 CEO Leadership Charter, or how to nominate a colleague or employer, visit the Commission’s website at: http://www.whscc.nl.ca.
