CHILLIWACK, BC (Nov 14, 2013, Press Release)

The BC Safety Charter announced today it has just welcomed its 100th member. E.A.R.A. Technologies Inc. became the latest organization to become a member when President and CEO Grenville B.H. Block sign the Charter.

“It is with great pleasure we announce today that we have secured our 100th signatory for the BC Safety Charter. E.A.R.A. Technologies Inc. which has been a sponsor of the Charter this year has become our 100th member. This is a major milestone for the initiative,” said Ben Hume, Chair of the Charter Steering Committee.

The Charter represents the commitment from industry and organizational leaders to create a workplace culture based on the principle that the effective management of health and safety is essential to long term profitability and sustainability. CEOs and senior executives set corporate goals and priorities. By signing the Charter members reinforce to their senior executives and workers that worker health and safety are core corporate values that must be recognized as integral parts of the planning process.

The Charter has come a long way since it was launched in 2011 and is well ahead of its targets as it moves towards its four-year goal of having 150 members.

Retired International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield will be joining the CEOs and senior executives of the BC Safety Charter at their 2014 annual roundtable on May 1, 2014 at the Burnaby Delta Hotel and Conference Centre.

This will be the Charter’s fourth annual conference and each year the membership has grown substantially. This year’s roundtable is expected to attract the largest number of members, media and guests as the Charter pushes past 100 members.
