2022 Service Hospitality Safety Centered Leadership Award Recipients

Once a year, Service Hospitality recognizes individuals who have taken a leadership role in demonstrating their commitment to safety. The SCLA awards an individual or group that:

  • Notably goes above and beyond meeting occupational and psychological health and safety standards.

  • Produces positive outcomes in health, safety, and wellness culture.

  • Integrates health and safety into business and internal work practices.

Workplaces prosper when safety is at the centre of all business activities. Since 2013, Service Hospitality has annually honoured those who take a leadership role in demonstrating this commitment. With great pleasure, we announce Don Meikle, Executive Director, and Amanda Griffiths, Program Manager of Saskatoon Downtown Youth Centre (EGADZ), as the Service Hospitality 2022 Safety Centered Leadership Award recipients.

Positive safety culture starts at the top. Don saw this need and built a leadership team around that key principle. Amanda’s desire to challenge the status quo resulted in extraordinary success at EGADZ and within the community.  Along with their leadership, EGADZ changed internal reporting processes, challenged lengthy claims, and coordinated training for many organizational leaders and staff, resulting in a discounted WCB premium rate and coordinated organizational corporate an all-time low number of workplace injuries.  The value they placed on safety is further highlighted by the investment made into the “Missing Youth Saskatchewan” app, aiming to improve safety broader than an organization for Saskatchewan youth. 

Service Hospitality’s purpose has always been to build the capacity of members to prevent worker injury. For 27 years, we have helped businesses become even more successful at what they do, fulfilling our vision of Healthy and Safe Workplaces. Prospering. We are proud to work with EGADZ and all members of Service Hospitality. This fall, be watching for communication on the nomination process for the 2023 award!

“Above and beyond the training that we received from Service Hospitality, they assisted our Organization in a claim that had excellent results for the Organization; many thanks.”

Amanda Griffiths, Program Manager -EGADZ
