June 7, 2024 – The Electrical Contractors Association of Ontario’s R. Hugh Carroll Safety Awards demonstrate the ECAO’s commitment “to promoting and fostering a positive, safety-first culture amongst its membership, and the electrical industry”.

This year’s honorees were recognized during the association’s 2024 annual general meeting at the Woodbine Trackside Clubhouse.

“Every year it gets harder to pick the winner, because the applications are just getting better and better,” said Tom MacKay, director, Health, Safety & Environment, adding that two of this year’s honorees became COR-certified just this year.

Our PHOTO GALLERY below. Meantime, congratulations to the following:

Rogol Electric Company Limited (up to 20 workers)


C&M Electric (between 20 and 100 workers)

Mellon Inc. (between 100 and 250 workers)

E.S. Fox Limited (over 250 workers)

This year, the R. Hugh Carroll Safety Award categories were restructured according to company size, resulting in four categories rather than the previous eight.

“For the third year, we looked at both leading and lagging indicators,” MacKay explained, adding that about 90% of the questions focused on leading indicators, “which you can change in real time.”

Next year, MacKay says ECAO will recognize all members who have achieved a certain level of achievement in occupational health & safety.
