This prestigious event showcased the incredible talent and skills of young Canadians pursuing careers in the skilled trades.
As a company dedicated to promoting safety in the workplace, Bunzl Safety recognizes the importance of supporting and encouraging young people in their journey towards the trades. The Skills Canada National Competition serves as a platform for these individuals to demonstrate their expertise and passion while competing against their peers from across the country.

By emphasizing safety measures and best practices, we can ensure their well-being and reduce the likelihood of accidents or injuries.
