AISC Names 2015 Safety Award Winners
March 15, 2016
(Chicago, IL) – More than 70 structural steel facilities are being honored with an AISC Safety Award for their excellent records of safety performance in 2015. Awards are given in the categories of “Shop and Office” and “Field Erection” and include the Safety Award of Honor, the Institute’s top safety award, presented for a perfect safety record of no disabling injuries, as well as the Safety Certificate of Merit and Safety Certificate of Commendation.
“AISC’s annual Safety Awards program recognizes excellent records of safety performance, and we commend these facilities for their effective accident prevention programs,” said Tom Schlafly, AISC’s director of safety. “Periodic recognition of safety in the workplace has been demonstrated to provide worker incentive and a reminder of the importance of safe practices.”
The AISC Safety Awards program is open to all AISC Member fabricators and erectors. For more information about the program as well as safety resources available for the fabricated and erected structural steel industry, please visit www.aisc.org/safety.
AISC will also be offering a special safety session at the 2016 NASCC: The Steel Conference (April 13-15 in Orlando). The session, titled “Planning for Safety,” will be held on Thursday, April 14, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. You’ll learn how two experienced fabricators improved the safety culture in their companies with nine simple safety principles.
