For the fifth consecutive year, Morguard was recognized as one of Canada's Safest Employers in the Retail and Services category by Canadian Occupational Safety. This notable achievement demonstrates Morguard's ongoing commitment to occupational health and safety as a risk management imperative, with a positive impact on employee wellbeing and property performance. "Morguard recognizes the value a strong occupational health and safety culture brings to our business, employees, and stakeholders," said K. Rai Sahi, Chairman and CEO, Morguard Corporation. "Sound risk management is the bedrock of Morguard's operating principles for obvious reasons including business continuity and liability reduction. Moreover, it is fundamental to keeping our people healthy and safe, which is of upmost importance." The continued success of Morguard's Occupational Health and Safety ("OHS") strategy is a result of the company's unique approach to developing processes in-house, which incorporates an organizational focus on employee empowerment and accountability as core values. "Empowering employees across Canada to be responsible for health and safety is integral to upholding our reputation while keeping both employees and tenants safe in Morguard properties," said Sahi. "Morguard's focus on empowerment and accountability contribute to reduced business costs and service disruptions, in addition to improving employee retention and lowering rates of absenteeism – which is good for both our people and our business."
