WSIB 2020 Press Release

Nightingale is pleased to announce it has been recognized by the WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board) for its exemplary industry performance in 2020. This is the fourth year in which Nightingale’s workplace performance has exceeded industry standards. WSIB is awarded to businesses who demonstrate a strong commitment and adherence to workplace safety concerns. WSIB considers company performance related to injury claims, industry standards and health and safety maintenance when making its decision to award companies.

The WSIB award is a significant achievement for Nightingale considering it operates in the manufacturing industry, where the chances of workplace accidents are more likely to occur compared to other sectors. At Nightingale, we continually invest in the safety and security of our facility because our people are our greatest asset. The factory and all supervisors are constantly monitored and evaluated to ensure our rigorous health and safety standards are upheld.

Nightingale’s factory is waste-free and free from off-gassing that is common in many manufacturing plants. The company is LEED, BIFMA Level 2, Greenguard and ISO 9001:2008 certified.

In 2020, Nightingale quickly adapted to meet the unprecedented health and safety guidelines that were established due to Covid-19. Renovations and facility enhancements such as installing improved air filtration systems and creating safe, socially distanced work areas were completed to ensure our employees’ health and safety.

Workplace health and safety is extremely important to Nightingale and we are honored to have our efforts recognized by WSIB for the fourth time.
