Deadline Extended: Applications Now Open for 2020 America's Safest Companies

April 30, 2020
Applications for the award honoring leadership in safety management can be submitted until July 31.

If you think your company has a culture that elevates safety to a world-class level, then consider applying to be be one of America’s Safest Companies.

Since 2002, more than 200 companies have been honored by EHS Today for their occupational safety, health, environmental and risk management efforts by being named one of America’s Safest Companies. Safety is everyone’s business at these companies, from the newest hire to the CEO and the chairman of the board.

To be considered one of America's Safest Companies, organizations must demonstrate: support from leadership and management for EHS efforts; employee involvement in the EHS process; innovative solutions to safety challenges; injury and illness rates lower than the average for their industries; comprehensive training programs; evidence that prevention of incidents is the cornerstone of the safety process; good communication about the value of safety; and a way to substantiate the benefits of the safety process.

Submitted applications must be for the entire company/organization, not just one single location that operates as part of the company. The company’s corporate headquarters must be based in the United States.

The application process is open from May 1 through July 31, 2020 (Note: The deadline has been extended from the original date of July 15). Previous winners must wait five years before reapplying. You can find the application by visiting our website.

New this year: All completed applications will need to be submitted via our online form. You can find the link to the final upload form on our website or going to this direct link.

Winners are invited to attend the America’s Safest Companies Awards Night Out, held Nov. 11, 2020, at the Safety Leadership Conference in Scottsdale, AZ. Winners also receive two free passes to the 2020 Safety Leadership Conference, November 10-12, at the DoubleTree Resort Paradise Valley.
