Recognizing Utah Companies' for Success in Safety
Nominations are being accepted for the Utah Safety Council's Awards Program. The Utah Safety Council's Awards and Recognition Program is designed to promote prevention of unsafe acts by honoring individuals and organizations for excellent safety performance. Nominations are being accepted for several levels of awards. Recipients will be honored at the 2013 Utah Safety Council Annual Meeting on Friday, September 6, 2013, at the Sheraton Salt Lake City Hotel, 150 West 500 South, Salt Lake City. This is the only safety recognition program in the state that recognizes all industries for their safety excellence.
The “Individual Achievement in Safety Award” is given to one individual who has made major contributions in the field of safety that have substantially impacted an organization or the community.
The “Award of Merit” and the “Award of Honor” recognize outstanding achievements in corporate safety programs. In order to receive the "Award of Merit," an organization's incidence rate must be lower than the national average for the industry, the organization must demonstrate continuous improvement or sustained levels of excellence and it must have essential elements of a safety program in place. The "Award of Honor" recognizes one organization that meets the above criteria, but exceeds the performance of all other entries.
The “Perfect Record Award” recognizes organizations that within the 2012 calendar year did not incur an OSHA recordable injury or illness, and days away from work or death.
The “Million Hour Award” recognizes organizations that have accomplished 1,000,000, or any other million increments of consecutive employee-hours during the 2012 calendar year without incurring an OSHA recordable injury or illness, and days away from work or death.
The “Professional Driver of the Year Award” is given to one individual who has demonstrated outstanding accomplishments as measured by years of driving, exemplary driver history and/or other distinguished personal characteristics including professional behavior and acts of heroism.
