In The Community
The Association for Workplace Tragedy Family Support (known as Threads of Life) is a national registered Canadian charity dedicated to supporting families along their journey of healing who have suffered from a workplace fatality, life-altering illness or occupational disease. Their network of family members and corporate partners believe traumatic workplace injuries, occupational diseases and deaths are preventable.
Through community action such as the Steps for Life walks, and participation in the Speakers Bureau, they effect a change in attitudes and behaviors where injuries are no longer considered to be “just the cost of doing business.” We strive for safer workplaces for Canadian families.
Levitt-Safety is proud to have partnered with CSSE to focus employers, employees, partners and the public on the importance of preventing injury and illness in the workplace, at home and in the community.
We are proud to be a Motivational Champions Award sponsor and presenter for Best Representation of the Theme since 2010.
We have been a proud and active supporter of The United Way since 1993. Following the United Way’s mission to “improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action”, Levitt-Safety participates in and organizes fundraising events year-round to support the efforts of the United Way.
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, faith-based organisation whose mission is to mobilize volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing and promoting home ownership as a means of breaking the poverty cycle.
With hard hats in hand and the spirit of giving in mind, a small group of Levitt-Safety Oakville employees joined forces with some friends from
Timberland Pro to participate in the “Adopt-A-Day” program with the Habitat for Humanity Toronto organisation. While some duties were more glamorous than others, each individual quickly learned that although a task may not produce drastic changes in the structure of the overall project, it would serve as a small step towards the completion of the community. This venture was not about building a house from start to finish but rather was a lesson in the vast importance of a seemingly minor task. Although the day was a challenge in physical and mental strength, the opportunity to give those less fortunate a home to call their own was well worth it.
Levitt-Safety President and CEO, Bruce Levitt, is proud to have been a founding member of this forward-thinking alliance. Launched in April of 2005, the CEO Health & Safety Leadership Charter strives to achieve a Canada-wide breakthrough in health and safety performance.
Members of this partnership have committed to work together to improve health and safety performance through sharing, mentoring and coaching.
Today, more than 150 companies across the Canada have signed on to this charter and in 2007, the Conference Board of Canada took the reins of this initiative and an aim to expand the membership.
