EHS Today has named 16 companies to the list of 2015 America's Safest Companies. These 16 companies represent a broad array of industries: construction, manufacturing, utilities, oil and gas and more. We often hear talk of excellence in business and ROI, but what about excellence in safety? Only when executive leaders are aligned with incorporating safety thinking into business objectives and decisions will we achieve true safety excellence.
“What we’ve been hearing from experts is that in order for workplaces to achieve world-class safety, they must look beyond concepts like ‘zero injuries’ and look toward creating a culture that aligns business and safety. A lack of injuries does not translate to a world-class safety culture, and these companies understand that,” said EHS Today Editor-in-Chief Sandy Smith. “Safety excellence goes much deeper than that.”
