NECA Hails Safety Achievement with Zero-Injury and Safety Excellence Recognition

Apr 10, 2017

Protecting workers on the job is not only a moral imperative and a legal obligation; it also makes good business sense. The dozens of NECA contractors who earned recognition through NECA’s Recognition of Safety Achievement awards program. This elite safety recognition program is focused on recognizing thriving companies that excel in multiple areas of their safety and health programs.


Awards are given to member companies that consistently have OSHA recordable injury and fatality rates at levels lower than the industry standard, and implement internal company safety practices above and beyond basic compliance.

2017 participants entered the competition by completing a short entry form that gathers data from their OSHA Form 300A (Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses), along with information on the total number of manhours their companies worked in the past year. Entrants also supplied the Experience Modification Rate (EMR) that their insurers apply to their Workers Compensation policies and some information about any OSHA citations received in 2016 and their company’s operations and best practices.

Based on this information, there are two types of awards presented through this program:

The Zero-Injury Recognition category recognizes those member-companies that have worked a full calendar year without recordable incidents.

The Safety Excellence Recognition category is the associations premier recognition program, and acknowledges member-contractors safety performance.
