Methanex Corporation, producer and supplier of methanol, announced it has been named Canada’s Safest Chemistry Employer at the 2022 Canada’s Safest Employer Awards (CSEA) ceremony. Presented by the Canadian Occupational Safety magazine and now in its 12th year, the awards program recognizes companies and professionals for outstanding health and safety achievements, leadership, and innovation over the past 12 months.

“We are incredibly proud to have received this recognition as Canada’s Safest Chemistry Employer, and honored to celebrate with our peers in the chemistry industry for our collective focus on safety,” said John Floren, president and CEO of Methanex. “Safety is critical across our business at Methanex, and our number-one priority is ensuring that each team member gets home safely every day. We believe all injuries are preventable, and our health and safety programs are designed to achieve our goal of a zero-injury workplace every year.”

Canada’s Safest Chemistry Employer award, sponsored by the Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC), specifically recognizes an employer within the chemistry industry that has an exemplary health and safety record — ensuring the highest level of health and safety for anyone who has access to, or works on or off, their premises or facilities.

“I would like to thank all our team members across the globe for their ongoing efforts to work safely and protect their colleagues. In doing so, they have all played a critical role in helping to make Methanex a safe place to work,” added Floren.
