SAFETY AWARDS CATEGORIES

Milestone Award
This highly coveted award shall be bestowed only upon those NCMA Producer or Associate member facilities or ICPI Producer or Associate member facilities with five, eight, or ten consecutive years of Safety
Awards Program entries with zero OSHA (or equivalent Canadian injury report) recordable injuries.

Platinum Safety Award
(previously the “Outstanding Safety Performance Award”)
This prestigious award, the highest level of safety achievement in a single year, is given to any (and all) NCMA Producer or Associate member facilities or ICPI Producer or Associate member facilities with
zero OSHA (or equivalent Canadian injury report) recordable injuries during the award reporting period.

Gold and Silver Safety Awards
(previously the “Excellence in Safety Gold and Silver Awards”)
All remaining NCMA Producer, NCMA Associate, ICPI Producer, and ICPI Associate entries are eligible for this second-tier award based on the work categories described below. In the event of an incidence-rate
tie, all tied entries will receive an award.

The Producer Gold Safety Award will be given to the NCMA or ICPI Producer member facility—and the Associate Gold Safety Award will be given to the NCMA or ICPI Associate member facility—with the best, non-zero recordable injury incidence rate in each category.*

The Producer Silver Safety Award will be given to the NCMA or ICPI Producer member facility—and the Associate Silver Safety Award will be given to the NCMA or ICPI Associate member facility—with the second-best, non-zero recordable-injury incidence rate
in each category.*

* Excellence in Safety Awards are categorized by total number of hours worked at a facility, as follows:
Category I   0 - 40,000 hours
Category II  40,001 - 80,000 hours
Category III 80,001 - 140,000 hours
Category IV  140,001 - 200,000 hours
Category V   200,001+ hours

The recordable-injury incidence rate (IR) is based on the number of OSHA 300 log (or equivalent Canadian injury report) recordable injuries for each facility during the reporting period, compared to the number of hours worked. This incidence-rate formula will be used to express all entries as the number of recordable cases per 100 employees:

( IR ) =(# of Recordable Injuries) x (200,000)
(Total # of hours worked)**

** “Total # of hours worked” during the reporting period is for all
personnel, for the facility being reported on this form.
