About Threads of Life
The Association for Workplace Tragedy Family Support (known as Threads of Life) is a national registered Canadian charity dedicated to supporting families after a workplace fatality, life-altering injury 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 change in attitudes and behaviours where injuries are no longer considered to be “just the cost of doing business.” They strive for safer workplaces for Canadian families
Threads of Life does not have guaranteed funding. We rely on grants for special project funding and donations (personal and corporate), third party events and the significant fundraising outcomes from Steps for Life – Walking for Families of Workplace Tragedy, to meet our mandate to help support families of workplace tragedy.

Our current focus is sponsoring the Threads of Life Speakers Bureau, that has presented to over 68,000 individuals since 2005. We give annually to the program and encourage our clients to have speakers come in to speak to their staff.
We thoroughly believe in Threads of Life and the positive impact they are having within occupational health and safety. We encourage you to read the full article about when we first partnered with Threads of Life back in 2011.

Baycomp Company - March 31st, 2017
Baycomp Company and OSG are proud partners in health and safety and we are happy to work with them on a regular basis. They hold an annual Health and Safety Day at their warehouse in Burlington. In 2017 we were able to attend the event, and brought along a Threads of Life speaker to present his inspirational story. Baycomp Company hopes by holding their annual Health and Safety Day, and inviting OSG and Threads of Life, they are able to pass on a positive message of health and safety to all of their employees. We thank Baycomp Company for allowing us to participate, and allowing us to bring our friends at Threads of Life with us.
