The competition is underway for the America's Safest Companies awards, which are presented every year by EHS Today. To be considered one of America’s Safest Companies, organizations must be headquartered in the United States and 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.
In this podcast, EHS Today's editor-in-chief Dave Blanchard and managing editor Nicole Stempak explain how to access and fill out the application form, and point out some of the nuances that make the difference to the judges when considering which companies have that "something extra" that defines one of America's Safest Companies.
The application process is open until May 19, 2023. There is no cost to apply. You can find the online application by clicking on this link.
Those companies chosen to be part of the 2023 Class of America's Safest Companies will be honored at an awards ceremony at the 2023 Safety Leadership Conference, held September 18-20 in Orlando, Fla. You can learn more about the conference at this link.
