Itasca, IL– The National Safety Council is extending the application deadline for its 2007 Robert W. Campbell Award to June 30, 2007. The winner of this international award recognizing business excellence in safety, health and environmental (SH & E) management will be announced at NSC's 95th Annual Congress & Expo in Chicago on Oct. 15, 2007.
The call for applications seeks successful business models from organizations around the world that excel in both SH&E and business performance. Case studies must demonstrate that measurable achievements in SH&E performance are linked to productivity, profitability and other measures of business performance.
Through the award’s outreach and educational efforts, its winners are acknowledged not only as international business leaders, but as corporate citizens who recognize the value of protecting employees, communities and the environment. Winning case studies are published and showcased at conferences around the world.
Companies compete by size category. Category I organizations have more than 1,000 employees; Category II organizations employ up to 1,000 people. Each qualified application is evaluated by members of an international review panel representing management, labor, academic and government perspectives. Each participating organization receives the experts’ written feedback.
