10 Years of the B&M Safety Calendar

This year, Black & McDonald (B&M) celebrates 10 years of producing the B&M Safety Calendar. Submissions were requested from kids aged 4 to 12 years and was open to all B&M and subsidiary employees.

The premise of the calendar is to get younger generations to start thinking and talking about safety! Submissions touched on many different safety topics such as school yard safety, games or sports safety, weather safety, or drawings that show their parent or family member donning the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at work.

Regardless of the drawing, the common feedback we received was that when kids are engaged, it creates an opportunity to open a dialogue about important safety topics… and they get to see their artwork featured in print!

Typically, 2000 copies are printed and distributed to all offices across B&M and subsidiaries. There are 13 prizes for the featured images and 6 prizes for honourable mentions. All submissions have a designated space in the calendar.

CBO recently achieved a Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) of 0.00 in 2023! This impressive metric shows consistency in our employees making every effort to be incident free. At our work sites we hear and see mottos like “Never Pass a Fault”, “Live and Work Safely”, “Home Safely Always” and “Nobody Gets Hurt Today or Tomorrow” – these values are never far from anyone’s mind, demonstrating the effectiveness of our safety program.

CBO is thrilled to see the continuation of the B&M Safety Calendar and congratulations to all the winners and kids who participated!
