Dexterra Receives Gold Award for Youth Worker Safety
Dexterra has been named the gold winner in the 2019 Canada’s Safest Employers Awards in the young worker safety category for our Outland Youth Employment Program (OYEP). Canada’s Safest Employer recognizes organizations who are safety leaders across Canada by promoting a proven track-record of occupational health and safety for their employees.
“We are proud of everyone involved in this accomplishment,” said John Mac Cuish, President and CEO, Dexterra. “We understand and believe that operating safely is best for our people, our clients and the customers we serve.”
OYEP is a local, community-driven initiative which works toward equity and opportunity for Indigenous youth through education, training and work opportunities. For 20 years Dexterra has been proud of the opportunity to provide this successful youth training program. The OYEP delivery team embeds health and safety in every aspect of the program.
At Dexterra, our leadership is engaged in safety at all levels in the organization. We believe everyone is a safety leader and we don’t just walk by. If we see something right, we celebrate it and if we see something wrong, we act to resolve it.
