Is Your Company Ready to Be an America's Safest Company in 2018?
Applications for the award honoring leadership in safety management can be submitted until July 17.
If you think your company has a culture that integrates safety with production, quality and
sustainability, then consider applying to be one of America’s Safest Companies.
Since 2002, more than 200 companies have been honored by EHS Today for their occupational safety, health, environmental and risk management efforts by being named one of America’s Safest Companies. Safety is everyone’s business at these companies, from the newest hire to the CEO and the chairman of the board.
To be considered one of America's Safest Companies, organizations must demonstrate: support from leadership and management for EHS efforts; employee involvement in the EHS process; innovative solutions to safety challenges; injury and illness rates lower than the average for their industries; comprehensive training programs; evidence that prevention of incidents is the cornerstone of the safety process; good communication about the value of safety; and a way to substantiate the benefits of the safety process.
The application process is open from May 1 through July 17, 2018. Previous winners must wait five years before reapplying. You can find the application by clicking on the download link below (pdf format).
Winners will be expected to attend the America’s Safest Companies Awards Night Out, held November 7 at the Safety Leadership Conference. Winners also receive two free passes to the 2018 Safety Leadership Conference, November 6-8, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Louisville. This event is designed to share best leadership, risk management, compliance and safety practices with EHS professionals hoping to achieve world-class safety at their companies.
