NAWIC 2021 MIDWEST REGION SAFETY EXCELLENCE AWARD APPLICATION
Introduction: Our Midwest Region's Safety & Health Awareness Committee is pleased to offer the Safety Excellence Award to distinguish NAWIC member companies who recognize safety as a corporate value and commitment. These companies have implemented excellent safety and health programs, and innovative solutions for creating strong safety cultures within their organizations. The means of achieving this include owner/upper management commitment, proactive safety and health programs, consistent enforcement policies, employee training, management committee initiatives, and program implementation creativity/innovation. Changes: Three categories will be accepted this year: General Contractor, Subcontractor, and Supplier/Trucking. In the past, the Safety Excellence Award was given to the top three member companies at the chapter level, the regional level, and the national level, with a progressive winning process. In 2018 we did away with the progressive process by allowing any company who qualifies to complete and turn in their application for the National Safety Excellence Award. We greatly encourage the Chapters and National to continue with Safety Excellence Awards at their levels with the understanding that these will not follow the old progression.
Eligibility: Eligible participants must employ a NAWIC member or Member-At-Large. Completed applications must be submitted in one combined document by April 1, 2021 to the Safety & Health Awareness Committee Co-Chairperson, Jennifer Erickson.
Award will be presented at the 2021 MWR Spring Forum in St. Louis April 29- May 1.
Send applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. Judging for this award will be done by an unbiased party. Three (3) categories will be accepted this year: General Contractor, Subcontractor, and Supplier/Trucking. The top three winners will be awarded at the 2021 Annual Conference in Charlotte, NC either in person or virtually. Awards are based on leading indicators, not lagging indicators. However, this year the National Committee is asking for your organization’s lagging indicators in the form of OSHA 300 logs, EMR rate, DART Incident Rate and Recordable Case Rate for use in the event of a tie. Proper business letter etiquette such as spelling, punctuation, grammar, and formatting will also be used for scoring in the event of a tie. All sections on all four pages must be completed for consideration.
