Earlier this year, Northbridge Insurance launched the Transportation Safety Award in Ontario and has now expanded it nationally this year.
As announced last Spring, 16 Canadian carriers with industry-leading safety practices were selected as nominees from across the country. Groupe Robert from Rougemont, Quebec, was selected as our first-ever national award recipient and received the prize during an event held at their head office on September 16, 2022.
“Since its inception in 1946, Groupe Robert has travelled far – literally and figuratively. Led by the Robert family, the company has always had a strong people focus. They are committed to maintaining positive and productive work environment, and make every effort to embrace and promote various safety initiatives to protect their employees,” Northbridge stated.
“Safety comes first. It is part of who we are, not only what we do, and drives our decisions. Offering our employees a safe work environment is non-negotiable,” said Claude Robert, chairman of Groupe Robert.
“Groupe Robert has been a close collaborator, they truly lead the way in terms of Canadian transportation safety,” said Scott Creighton, director of Risk Services at Northbridge Insurance. “Congratulations to the entire Groupe Robert team on your efforts, and for being recognized as the 2022 Northbridge Insurance Transportation Safety Award recipient.”
