A corporation working out of Kapuskasing, Hearst and Opasatika have been acknowledged for their excellence.
The Workplace Safety North Annual General Meeting and awards took place this year in late September in North Bay.
Tembec Forest and Resource Management were recognized on the evening as one of 25 companies receiving a Workplace Excellence Award.
Corporate Manager for Health and Safety Gaetan Mercier says the award recognizes the excellence that each corporation has put into their health and safety standards at the workplace.
Mercier says considering it was their first submission, winning the award is terrific recognition for their efforts.
He says moving forward they hope to continue the great health and safety standards they have displayed thus far.
This is the first year they have been recognized for their workplace excellence as Tembec was not up for the award during the 2016 Workplace Safety North AGM.
