NSC Announces Safety Leadership Award and
Superior Safety Performance Award Recipients

Itasca, IL – The National Safety Council awarded 13 companies Safety Leadership Awards and 2 companies Superior Safety Performance Awards in April. Safety Leadership recipients have achieved five consecutive years and Superior Safety Performance recipients have achieved 10 consecutive years without an occupational injury or illness resulting in lost employee work days or death. 

In 2008, work injuries cost the nation $183 billion. There were an estimated 4,303 unintentional work deaths. Companies that motivate and inspire safe behavior are able to reduce workplace injuries and deaths and improve their bottom lines. When employees are encouraged and recognized for safe behavior, companies can build strong corporate safety cultures.
