America's Safest Companies of 2022

Oct. 14, 2022
EHS Today salutes nine companies that go above and beyond in promoting a culture of safety excellence.

F or more than 20 years, EHS Today has awarded deserving organizations as America’s Safest Companies, a competition that has sought to identify those characteristics that differentiate good safety programs from great ones and recognize safety excellence in action.

In the profiles that follow, you’ll learn how a focus on people, public trust and profit is a common denominator among this year’s class. Whether large enterprises with thousands of employees or small organizations with a single site, every one of these companies has engrained into their culture and their employees a consistent and constant need to keep every person and every situation free from harm.

To be considered as one of America’s Safest Companies, organizations must complete an application that requires them to demonstrate excellence in several areas: 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.

The winning companies for 2022 are:

The awards will be presented during a ceremony at EHS Today’s Safety Leadership Conference 2022 in Cleveland on Oct. 18-20. You can learn more about the conference and sign up to register at www.safetyleadershipconference.com.

EHS Today founded America’s Safest Companies in 2002. To date, more than 250 companies have won the award. In fact, several companies have won more than once; a company must wait five years after winning before applying again. Hopefully, the following profiles will encourage you to consider applying for the award in 2023.
