Itasca, IL – The
National Safety Council awarded 2 companies/individuals with Safety Leadership
Awards in June. Safety Leadership recipients have achieved five consecutive
years without an occupational injury or illness resulting in lost employee work
days or death.
2010, work injuries cost the nation nearly $177 billion. There were an
estimated 3,783 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.
Awards and Superior Safety Performance Awards are part of the Council’s Safety
Motivation and Recognition Award Program. Congratulations to the following
- Los Alamos Technical Associates, Inc., Albuquerque, NM
