Announcing the Winners of the 3M Respiratory Story

London, ON (October 15th, 2012) – 3M has long been a leader in occupational health and safety, especially with regards to respiratory protection – 40 years to be exact. On May 24th, 2012, 3M Canada launched the celebration of the 40th anniversary of 3M respiratory solutions with a unique contest.

From May 23rd through August 30th, 2012, 3M Canada invited all Canadians who rely on 3M respiratory protection – whether they use 3M respirators for DIY projects around the house or utilize 3M respirators on the job day-in and day-out – to share their stories about how 3M respiratory products keep them safe, comfortable, and cool at www.3M.ca/40years. Participants had the chance to win a Nikon® COOLPIX® camera or one of 40 VISA® gift cards, just for sending in their story and a photo.

After an outpouring of entries from all across Canada, 3M Canada is proud to announce that Aaron Jacobs of Tarpon Energy has been selected as the Winner of the 40 Years of Respiratory Protection and Solutions for Keeping you Cool Campaign.
