It keeps me aware of what is happening across Canada because it overviews different jurisdictions. It is timely, and always has relevant information. I also like the international focus.

Maria Vomiero, Health and Safety Supervisor

We have benefited from using SafeSupervisor because most of the information that we are looking for is right in the magazine. I don't need to search the web in order to find certain information.

Mike Mazar, Safety Co-Ordinator

Always a topic available for safety meetings that is already planned out - the quizzes are helpful. I like having access to applicable articles, safety talks, and the ability to create posters.

Jenny Sheppard, HR Coordinator - Health & Safety

SafeSupervisor has saved me time by having a wealth of resources on one site. I use the articles in my newsletter, use the safety talks for safety meetings and posters for our bulletin board.

Canada experienced 977 workplace fatalities in 2012 (the latest year for which statistics are available), up from 919 in the prior year.  Workplace fatalities can affect any workplace—including yours—across Canada, across every age group.

The best defense against tragedy is in your hands: prevention is best accomplished through effective education and training, beginning with a commitment at the top and implemented at the level of the front-line supervisor.


Lost time injuries and diseases are widespread in Canada.  In 2012, they totaled an astounding 245,365.  Injuries and diseases occur across all occupations.  While certain industries experience much higher average injury rates (manufacturing, transportation and related industries), tens of thousands of injuries a year plague clerical and other office workers. Workplace injuries can almost always be prevented with an effective safety training program.

Your Career

Developing and maintaining an effective safety program requires significant time, effort and vigilance.  Training and education takes significant planning and coordination on your part:  you need to ensure that your efforts are current and up-to-date, and take into account constantly changing legislation (at both the federal and provincial levels) and best practices.  While there is often much free information available on the internet, as a professional you need to constantly evaluate the credibility of your sources:  one wrong move can spell disaster for your co-workers, company and your career.

You also need to develop programming that is engaging and effective, and you never get a break:  once you have a winning formula, it gets stale quickly.  Even the best programs need constant reinvention and innovation.

Plus, you are constantly asked to do more with less.  While that may be acceptable for other departments, you know that safety requires critical resources and effort.

Your implementation of a cost-effective safety program that engages employees and demonstrates a commitment on behalf of your company will speak loudly about your ability to get things done in a no-nonsense, effective manner.

The bottom line– While the human toll is paramount, workplace injuries also have a significant impact on your company’s ability to deliver results.  In 2012, each workplace injury cost Canadian companies and average of more than $30,000, according to government figures.  Fatalities, of course, have even greater implications for your company, with potential fines or even criminal charges possible.

Many safety training and education programs require modest investments, making an effective workplace safety program at your company not just the right thing to do, but also a smart investment.
