“Every year on April 28, we take a pause to recognize those who have been killed or injured on the work site. It’s important for us to do this not only because we have dealt with tragedy here at Fiera Foods, but because we want to be leaders in workplace safety and respond to the challenges our industry has faced by constantly improving as an employer to prevent worker injuries and deaths before they occur.
Manufacturing, and specifically Canada’s food industry, provide thousands of rewarding and challenging jobs from coast to coast. But the value of these jobs can only be realized if our workers can complete their responsibilities in a safe and healthy environment. That’s what our workers count on and that’s what we’re striving to achieve every day.
The loss of Amina Diaby on September 2, 2016 was a tragedy, and we owe it to her, and all deceased workers across Canada, to continually make improvements to workplace safety. On National Day of Mourning and every day we are proud to affirm this commitment.”
— Boris Serebryany, CEO of Fiera Foods
