OHS Canada is pleased to unveil an expanded awards program, highlighting excellence in the Canadian occupational health and safety profession.

Alongside our Top 10 Under 40 competition, our media brand has launched OHS Canada Honours for 2021 — where we aim to recognize the achievements of Canadian OH&S professionals with three separate individual awards.

“There is no doubt that the past 12 months have been difficult for all Canadians, due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said OHS Canada group publisher Paul Grossinger. “But when I think of what occupational health and safety professionals in Canada have had to endure, it makes me believe anything is really possible.”

Recognizing excellence in the OH&S profession is something OHS Canada is proud to do on an ongoing basis, he said.

“Our annual Top 10 Under 40 and OHS Canada Honours recognition programs really put a deserving spotlight on people who have made a difference at their workplace and in their communities — in the face of newfound realities, uncertainties, responsibilities and, sometimes, fears.”


The importance of OH&S professionals has been on full display through the COVID-19 pandemic, and we want to acknowledge the best and brightest in the field.

OHS Canada Honours recognizes the achievements of Canadian OH&S workers in three categories:

  • OH&S Professional of the Year
  • Lifetime Achievement Award
  • Community Leader Award

Anyone in an occupational health and safety position with a Canadian company who fits the criteria for the individual awards can be nominated.

To submit a nomination for OHS Canada Honours, fill out the form.

OHS Canada’s Top 10 Under 40 recognizes the achievements of the newest generation of Canadian OH&S workers.

Anyone in an OH&S position with a Canadian company who is under the age of 40 as of Dec. 31, 2021 is eligible for this award. Strong work ethics, leadership by example and dedication to health and safety will all be acknowledged.

To nominate someone for the Top 10 Under 40, fill out the form.

The OHS Canada team will select winners from the nominations received.

Last year’s inaugural winners were announced in the July/August issue of OHS Canada.
