The Roy A. Phinnemore Award

The Man

The late Roy A. Phinnemore served as Executive Director of the former Construction Safety Association of Ontario (CSAO) for many years. His dedication to injury and illness prevention during CSAO’s formative years encouraged others who have followed suit.

 

The Award

Inspired by Roy A. Phinnemore’s achievements, former CSAO director Oliver J. Gaffney established a fund to recognize similar contributions to prevention. Mr. Gaffney’s donation was matched by Mr. Phinnemore’s son and daughter—Robert and Margaret—and the Roy A. Phinnemore Award was established in 1969.

The Phinnemore Award is the foremost award given by the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA) to Ontario’s construction industry. The winner is acknowledged with a commemorative plaque presented each year at IHSA’s Annual General Meeting.

 

Criteria

The Roy A. Phinnemore Award is presented to the individuals who have diligently served the cause of construction health and safety through services, contributions, inventions, procedures, or any other means that the judging committee considers worthy of recognition. A judging committee is struck from IHSA’s Provincial Labour-Management Health and Safety Committee to review and judge the nominations.
