Safety is a top priority in everything we do at Riverbend. We believe in a workplace with zero injuries, and we believe in Mission Zero. Riverbend Co-op signed on to the WorkSafe Saskatchewan Health & Safety Leadership Charter in 2016. Mission Zero has been even more important during the pandemic, and Riverbend was nimble in creating a safe work and shopping environment by being early implementers of one-way aisles, plexiglass barriers, and enhanced cleaning schedules.
In early 2021, WorkSafe Saskatchewan created a COVID-19 WorkSafe course “aimed to provide employees with practical knowledge and training to help keep themselves, their coworkers, and their customers safe”. Riverbend has shown progressive and committed effort in combating the spread of the virus. Over 80% of Riverbend employees have taken the course, and we we are pleased to share that, for this effort, WorkSafe Saskatchewan has designated Riverbend Co-op a COVID-19 WorkSafe Leader.
