NECA 2019 Recognition of Safety Program Recipients Announced
Protecting workers on the job is not only a moral imperative and a legal obligation; it also makes good business sense. Dozens of NECA contractors are being recognized for their outstanding work and ongoing dedication to safety in the workplace through NECA’s Safety Achievement program for Zero-injury and Safety Excellence.
In 2019 there were 181 Safety Excellence recipients and 108 Zero Injury recipients. This honor is given to NECA member companies that consistently have lower than industry standard OSHA recordable injury and fatality rates and have implemented internal company safety practices above and beyond basic compliance. Plaques and letters will be distributed to winning companies by June 3 and will be announced during the NECA 2019 Safety Professionals Conference.
More About the Program:NECA’s Recognition of Safety Achievement program is an elite safety recognition 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.
There are two categories:
- The Zero-Injury recognizes those member-companies that have worked a full calendar year without recordable incidents.
- The Safety Excellence is the associations premier recognition program, and acknowledges member-contractors safety performance.
