Don Currie Workplace Safety Champion Award

Recognizes a staff member or physician who consistently demonstrates workplace safety values and behaviors that result in improvements to the safety and wellbeing of others.

This award is named after Don Currie, a member of the Occupational Health, Safety and Wellness team who passed way in 2019. Don was a wonderful person whose spirit of positivity was contagious. He was a dedicated leader who was passionate about health and safety. Don demonstrated his passion by way of supporting health and safety education and training, internally and externally. Don continually moved the needle to help create a culture of safety in healthcare and was a true role model, leader and colleague.
