Canyon Creek wins state “Better Workplace” safety award

The Association of Washington Business (AWB) recently honored Canyon Creek Cabinet Company with a Better Workplace Award in the category of Continuous Commitment. Seven Washington companies were honored for safety, job training, and benefit programs during a luncheon near the state capitol in Olympia this week.

AWB’s annual Better Workplace Awards recognize Washington companies that demonstrate exceptional commitment to workplace safety, and that invest in employees through innovative job training, advancement and benefit programs.

Canyon Creek has maintained an ongoing commitment to safety, even during the economic downturn over the last five years. The company has established many new programs to promote workplace safety, heighten awareness and make improvements in all areas of the plant. The company was previously recognized for an AWB Better Workplace Award in 2009.

According to AWB president Don Brunell: “The best companies understand that keeping workers safe and rewarding them for their hard work isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s good business. The employers honored today have set a high bar that all businesses—small, medium and large—can hope to reach.”
