This is Charter Signing Day.
If there is one thing this province’s business community has put its weight behind in the past decade or so, it’s the project known as Mission Zero.
Workplace safety has become top of mind for many businesses and has gone from something that was talked about to something that is embraced and done. It is not uncommon these days to hear a CEO say that safety is job one. Ten years ago, that same person might have said it but did little to back it up. Today, it is a real part of business life.
And more than 100 of those CEOs will be adding their signatures to the provincial Saskatchewan Health and Safety Charter in Regina today. Created by Safe Sask and the Mission Zero program, the Charter has seen hundreds of CEOs commit their organizations to elevating the safety message and culture by publicly adding their names to the Charter.
Since the creation of Mission Zero, the number of injuries in the province has been reduced and the program expanding, taking the lessons learned on the shop floor to the broader community.
