A call for entries for NSSGA’s Safety & Health Awards
The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) is accepting entries and nominations for its annual awards recognizing excellence in safety and health. The awards presentation will take place at AGG 1 slated for Feb. 15-18, 2010, in Cincinnati.
* Safety Excellence Award — originated in 1987, is based on the ability of an individual aggregates facility to maintain a safe workplace, evidenced by its safety performance over a period of time without an MSHA reportable injury.
* Sterling Award — created in 1994, recognizes individual companies’ safety performances. The individual producer company that achieves the lowest total incidence rate for the previous calendar year, in its respective category, will receive top honors. In the event of a tie, competitors’ total incident rates in preceding, consecutive years are compared until the best incidence rate is identified.
* James M. Christie Safety and Health Professional Award — established in 1987, recognizes one individual for superior and substantial contributions to his or her company’s — and the industry’s — effort toward proactive safe operating practices. This competition is open to any member safety and health professional with direct responsibility for the establishment, administration, implementation, and/or enforcement of corporate safety and health policy who has also made significant contributions to the industry’s safety and health responsiveness, is actively involved in either NSSGA’s or a state safety and health program, and has direct, day-to-day involvement in his or her own company’s safety and health affairs.
