Synchronizing the efforts of senior leaders, managers and staff across the organization to ensure all employees participate actively in the company’s occupational health and safety program has made Morguard one of Canada’s Safest Employers for sixth consecutive year in 2018.


The Opportunity

Proactively address potential hazards and collaborate on risk mitigation by developing programs that allow for greater control and customization while encouraging inclusive program planning, implementation and measurement.

At Morguard, the alignment and engagement of senior leaders, managers and staff across the organization ensures all employees are active participants in the company’s occupational health and safety (OHS) program by making everyone accountable.

All team members are encouraged to provide feedback to improve the company’s health and safety initiatives with the purpose of keeping everybody safe from potential risks.



The Value Proposition

The implementation of Morguard’s OHS initiatives is a shared responsibility amongst all team members. Morguard’s commitment goes beyond providing safe workplaces and instead promotes awareness across all organizational levels by advocating the importance of taking care of each other.

A unique approach of developing processes in-house has been fundamental to the continued success of Morguard’s OHS strategy. The Risk Management team provides the required tools to comply with the requisite health and safety legislation, managing the health and safety policy procedures and overseeing the design, implementation and success of all OHS initiatives to ensure that safety protocols are tailored to the individual needs of all types of properties.

The goal to identify, prevent and mitigate workplace accident, injury, or illness across the organization is attained by:

  • Recognizing shared responsibilities
  • Following all safety rules and practices
  • Co-operating with government officials who enforce safety legislation
  • Taking the necessary steps to protect oneself and fellow employees
  • Attending required safety training
  • Immediately reporting all accidents, injuries and unsafe practices or conditions

Senior management is also involved and committed to the OHS initiatives, supporting all activities implemented by the Risk Management team.


The Result     
In 2018, Morguard was recognized for the sixth consecutive year as one of Canada’s Safest Employers by Canadian Occupational Safety.

This approach to risk management in occupational health and safety is key to maintaining a productive workforce, managing liability for property owners, and upholding a reputation as a landlord of choice. Keeping safety at the forefront of all initiatives is what continues to make Morguard a top performer and one of Canada’s safest employers year-after-year.


“Morguard recognizes the importance of maintaining a robust occupational health and safety program to ensure our business, employees and stakeholders understand and are aligned with our safety culture. We embrace occupational health and safety as an opportunity to invest in the company and the wellbeing of our employees.”
