EHS Today, the magazine for environment, health and safety leaders, has announced its list of the 2023 America’s Safest Companies. The 10 companies on the list are involved in a broad range of activities, from industrial contracting to robotics, from packaging to cabinetry, from paper products to electrical construction, and more.
For more than 20 years, the America’s Safest Companies competition has sought to identify those characteristics that differentiate good safety programs from great ones, and to then celebrate the best practices and procedures that exemplify safety excellence.
The companies that have achieved that excellence in 2023 will be honored at an awards ceremony that is part of the Safety Leadership Conferencein Orlando, Florida, September 18-20.
The America’s Safest Companies Class of 2023 is:
ACCO Brands, Cajun Industries, Jordan Foster Construction, Loven Contracting, MasterBrand Cabinets, Performance Contractors, Plastipak Packaging, Price Electric, S&B Engineers & Constructors, and Yaskawa America.
Winners of the award over the years have ranged from small companies with less than 100 employees to global giants with more than 50,000 employees; some have one safety representative while others have large EHS staffs. What they all have in common is a focus on people, public trust and profit.
“Every America’s Safest Company winner is a standard-bearer of safety excellence. Each winning company has engrained into their culture and their employees a consistent and constant need to keep every person and every situation free from harm,” said EHS Today Editor-in-Chief Dave Blanchard.
The theme of the 2023 Safety Leadership Conference, scheduled for September 18-20 in Orlando, Florida, is “Establishing a Culture of Safety Excellence.” The special awards ceremony will be held Wednesday, Sept. 19, and will celebrate the achievements of the 10 companies named to this year’s list of America’s Safest Companies.
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 best practices from all of the 2023 America’s Safest Companies will be featured in a special section in the July/August 2023 issue of EHS Today magazine and on the brand’s website, www.ehstoday.com. Since 2002, America’s Safest Companies has honored more than 250 organizations for their unwavering commitment to worker safety, health and environmental stewardship.About EHS Today
