Canada Health & Safety Recognition and Awards

Posted by Stephen Ross on

People come first at Glidepath. We’ve long had a commitment to health and safety in the workplace; it’s a top priority. As such, we are pleased to report that Glidepath's Canada operation has this May (2019) received the distinction of passing the COR™ Certification Assessment, and at Toronto Pearson Airport (GTAA), the Glidepath team have been recognized with awards for their workplace safety practices.

COR™ Certification

The Certificate of Recognition (COR™) is awarded by the Canadian Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA). It’s given in recognition of a company’s implementation of a health and safety plan that takes a strategic approach to workplace safety and demonstrates commitment to reducing both the human and financial cost of workplace injuries.


It is an honour for Glidepath to have received this certification; only around 200 companies across all of Canada have achieved the required competencies.

"I would like to thank the Toronto team for their support in attaining this recognition, with a very special thanks to Anika Cleare for her continued dedication to the Health and Safety of our people. Anika’s understanding of the legislation and her commitment in implementing safe work practices on site has, without doubt, provided a very solid platform of which we can all be very proud."       — Hamish Smith, Glidepath General Manager Canada

GTAA Eye on Safety Awards

We are thrilled to report that Glidepath Canada has received two Eye on Safety awards from the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) for baggage handling systems (BHS) activities at Toronto Pearson Airport. Glidepath was awarded the Eye on Safety, Best Safety Project award, and three Glidepath staff members were awarded Eye on Safety, Employee awards.
