In this special section, you'll find the OHS vendors and suppliers that our readers selected as their favourites. Vox populi, vox dei. That's old Latin, and it means "The voice of the people is the voice of God." Often trotted out in the more secular realm of democratic elections, it can also apply to these awards. Simply put, our readers can never be wrong. They vote with their eyeballs on the content our editorial team works so hard to produce. They vote with their wallets — or more likely the corporate piggy bank — when it comes to purchasing products and services. And now, for the third year in a row, they have voted on their favourite suppliers. The firms highlighted in these pages are extraordinary and are the best at what they do, according to health and safety professionals and senior leaders at organizations across Canada. The numbers are impressive — after we finished counting the 31,000 ballots cast in 54 categories, our readers had identified more than 120 unique firms that were named a winner of at least one 2018 Readers' Choice Award. Many firms took home multiple awards. A big thanks goes out to these professionals who took time from their hectic schedules to participate. Their time is why these awards are so valuable to the winning firms — when you're looking for a service provider, look for the Readers' Choice seal. It's not an endorsement from Canadian Occupational Safety or a handful of judges. It's something far better: A seal of approval from other professionals facing the same challenges, pressures and constraints as you. Quick note about the listings: Every firm listed over the next 12 pages is a winner. They are not ranked — rather they are listed in alphabetical order by category. Some firms have logos and expanded information about their products and services. These firms chose to celebrate this honour from you with an enhanced listing. Remember you can always access this special section online as a digital edition. See awards/readers-choice-awards for more information. Todd Humber Publisher
