13 Companies Named America’s Safest 2017 by EHS Today

Sept. 12, 2017
EHS Today has named 13 companies – ACCO Brands Corp., Atkins Energy America, Electrical Systems & Instrumentation, H+M Industrial EPC, Mangan Inc., M.C. Dean Inc., Milliken & Company, National, Nova Group Inc., Texas Instruments Inc., Valvoline, Wastren Advantage Inc. and Yaskawa America Inc. – to the list of 2017 America’s Safest Companies.

Every year, the companies that apply to be one of America’s Safest Companies want to know a couple of things: First, did they win?? Second, how many applications were received? EHS Today received over 100 applications for 2017, and the winning companies are ACCO Brands Corp., Atkins Energy America, Electrical Systems & Instrumentation, H+M Industrial EPC, Mangan Inc., M.C. Dean Inc., Milliken & Company, National, Nova Group Inc., Texas Instruments Inc., Valvoline, Wastren Advantage Inc. and Yaskawa America Inc.

“Making those phone calls to the winning companies for 2017 is a highlight of the year for us,” said EHS Today Content Director Sandy Smith.

“A big focus for us this year has been ownership of safety. Does the executive suite own it? Do supervisors? What about employees; how do they fit in?” she asked. “We realized that for the 13 winning applications, despite the diverse industries and sizes of companies, one message resonated loud and clear: Every employee at these companies – from the CEO to the newest hire – plays a role in safety, has ownership of safety.”

All of the 2017 America’s Safest Companies demonstrated support from management and employee involvement; provided innovative solutions to safety challenges; reported injury and illness rates significantly lower than the average for their industries; supported comprehensive training programs; believed that that prevention of incidents is the cornerstone of the safety process; integrated safety into their corporate culture and communicated the value of safety to employees and customers; and substantiated the benefits of the safety process.

America’s Safest Companies was founded in 2002 by EHS Today and more than 200 companies have been named to the list. MCR Safety has been our partner in recognizing America's Safest Companies since the beginning.
