May 15, 2023 – Construction Safety Nova Scotia announced the winners of its 2023 Safety Awards, which were handed out at the association’s annual general meeting.

“It’s not often we get to recognize the incredible work that folks in our sector are doing to keep construction workers safe, and we are happy to provide that opportunity,” said MJ MacDonald, CEO. “These companies should be looked upon by others as shining examples of doing safety right.”

Congratulations to all recipients, but especially these from the Electrical sector:

Chair’s Award for Safety Excellence (Small Business): Eastern Alternative Power Systems Ltd.


Most Improved: XL Electric Limited

CSNC says more rigorous criteria were developed for the Chair’s Awards of Safety Excellence, which is the highest honour available. These awards are now determined through a combination of WCB statistics and external COR audit scores over the past three years. Additionally, winners cannot have had any OHS prosecutions, orders, or penalties in the last three years.

The Most Improved award is based on the improvement in the last three years of a company’s WCB injury rate and experience rating.

Construction Safety Nova Scotia is an industry-funded, not-for-profit association focused on improving occupational health and safety in the construction sector.
