(Richmond County, NS) – The Cape Breton Partnership, together with our partners at the Nova Scotia Department of Labour, Skills and Immigration, and the Workers’ Compensation Board of Nova Scotia was pleased to recognize two industry recipients of the eighth annual Safety First in Cape Breton Awards at two small in-person ceremonies which took place in late August.

The Safety First in Cape Breton Committee is pleased to offer its congratulations to Landry Brothers Limited in Louisdale who took home the Small Business Trailblazer Award, and to WINMAR Cape Breton in Lennox Passage who was awarded the Safety Culture Champion Award.

“While we were so happy to be able to recognize the recipients at this year’s virtual symposium in June, it was a special moment to be able to take the time and recognize them in-person for all that they do to keep safety at the forefront of their businesses for their employees and customers,” said Carla Arsenault, President & CEO of the Cape Breton Partnership who presented both businesses with their awards.

“Health and safety is a key priority for these two businesses, and it’s great to see the important work they are doing to promote and foster a strong and dedicated culture of safety,” added Arsenault. “It was an honour to congratulate them in person and thank them for creating a safer Cape Breton – Unama’ki, which will help to strengthen our economy.”
