The purpose of the Saskatchewan Health & Safety Leadership Charter “Mission: Zero” is to form the foundation for a cultural shift in the way Saskatchewan leaders view injuries and injury prevention. The Charter advocates for the continuous improvement of healthy and safe workplaces and communities with the goal of having zero injuries.  After signing the Charter, leaders are invited to join the Leadership Learning Community and continue the discussion.

“By signing the charter, Crestline is making a public statement that we subscribe to the principle that nothing is more important than the health, safety, and well being of our employees, customers, contractors, clients, visitors and, when possible, the surrounding community,” says Richard Valenti, VP of Operations. “We know that zero workplace injuries is an achievable number and we are committed to reaching that goal at Crestline because nothing we do is worth getting injured over.”
