In the following pages, you will fi nd the occupational health and safety vendors and suppliers that our readers selected as their favourites. This special section has been designed to highlight these extraordinary fi rms — the ones our readers think are the very best at what they do. Nearly 130 companies were honoured in 52 different categories. That means we've covered the gamut in terms of the products and services you're looking for — from prod- ucts such as cutting safety, fall protection, gas detection and PPE to services such as wellness programs, legal fi rms and training. The list goes on and on. Since this was the fi rst year we conducted the survey, we didn't know what to expect from you — our loyal reader. But you responded with enthusiasm, casting tens of thou- sands of ballots. This type of response rate adds even more cachet for the winning fi rms. After all, these companies weren't chosen by a handful of judges behind a closed door. Instead, we set up a digital survey and sent an invitation to our audience to vote — to tell us the companies they like doing business with and the ones that provide really good value. This guide is designed to be used by you, our readers, as a cheat sheet. It's like having a window into the offi ces of your colleagues at organizations across the country. When you're looking for a service provider, look for the Readers' Choice seal. It's not an endorsement from the edi- tors of Canadian Occupational Safety. It's something far better — the seal of approval from other professionals who are facing the same challenges as you. Thanks again for taking the time to vote. If you don't see your favourite fi rms honoured in these pages, be sure to participate and vote next year. Todd Humber Publisher
