SALMON ARM — Dinoflex, a manufacturer of recycled rubber surfacing, was awarded the Safety Pinnacle Sapphire Award, by the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC, on October 7, 2021, at the virtual Pinnacle Awards Gala. The Sapphire Award recognizes an organization for continuing leadership and their commitment to workplace health and safety excellence.

“The Sapphire award not only recognizes our organizations’ commitment to health and safety, it recognizes our ongoing efforts to continually develop, innovate and evolve our overall safety culture,” said Mark Bunz, CEO, Dinoflex Group. “Safety Above All, our number one and most important core value, means we continue to invest in our people, our processes, our equipment, customized automation and training. We continue to foster an environment that empowers all of our employees to make decisions that help us achieve our safety goals. This is a recognition of our entire team for their efforts and resolve in our “commitment to safety” journey. At times it can be challenging, but we understand and accept the fact that there is no finish line. It is indeed our most important continuum.”

To qualify for the Sapphire Pinnacle Award and maintain eligibility for subsequent levels, the organization must demonstrate a commitment to health and safety by participating in a mix of related training, advocacy, leadership, and mentorship activities.

“A company’s ongoing commitment to health and safety excellence through the OSSE journey shows extraordinary commitment to their most valuable asset—their people,” said Lisa McGuire, President and CEO of the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC, “In achieving the Sapphire Award, Dinoflex has demonstrated their leadership’s commitment to health and safety, a critical factor in occupational health and safety excellence.”
