America’s Safest Companies of 2023

July 31, 2023
EHS Today honors 10 companies that are standard-bearers of safety excellence.

SAFETY FIRST is a slogan found on many company bulletin boards and in many weekly employee meetings, but what exactly differentiates those companies that meet the industry average for occupational safety from those that excel at all aspects of environment, health and safety in their workplaces? That’s the premise behind EHS Today’s annual America’s Safest Companies competition: To identify and celebrate those organizations that go above and beyond in the pursuit of safety excellence, and to tell their stories to the entire safety community.

When applying for consideration as one of America’s Safest Companies, organizations must 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.

In the profiles that follow, you’ll hear how 10 companies in several different industries throughout the country—some with thousands of employees over multiple sites, and some smaller firms with just a single site—all are dedicated to safety to such an impressive extent that we’ve named them to the 2023 Class of America’s Safest Companies.

The awards will be presented during a special ceremony at EHS Today’s Safety Leadership Conference 2023, in Orlando, Florida, September 18-20. Go to for all the details and to register.

The America’s Safest Companies awards program was founded by EHS Today in 2002. To date, more than 250 companies have been recognized, and some companies have won the award more than once. We hope that the safety profiles that follow will inspire you to consider applying for the award in 2024.
