It also requires the company to have no fatalities during the calendar year for which the award is given.
“To win a National Safety Council Award is a validation of the work done in safety inside and outside of the organization,” said Michael Pollock, Vice President of Workplace Strategies and Partner Engagement for the National Safety Council. “Safety professionals focus on what needs to be changed and where improvements can be made to keep people safe. An award for safety success helps reinforce and promote what works.”
