“We are proud of these award winners, members of both ICPI and NCMA, who consistently exemplify safe manufacturing processes,” said NCMA President Bob Thomas. “Practicing safe manufacturing processes are more than fundamental, they’re paramount. It’s encouraging to see this program effectively highlighting such commitment.”

“The NCMA/ICPI program recognizes the positive safety-conscious work culture of our members,” said ICPI Executive Director Charles McGrath. “We are very pleased with the example that the Safety Award winners set. We are not only honoring members with good safety records, we are also honoring responsible business practices.”

Participants were eligible for awards through their OSHA 300A logs or equivalent Canadian injury reports from January 1 to December 31, 2019. Milestone Awards are given to facilities with more than five consecutive years of Safety Award Program entries with zero OSHA/Canadian injury report injuries. Platinum (highest level of single year achievement), Gold and Silver awards are given based on two formulas, one for Incident Rate (IR) and Days Away for Restrictions and Transfer Rate (DART).
