The Governor’s Award for Safety Excellence recognizes employers that have achieved the highest standards in workplace safety.
“Since Pennsylvania has the best workforce in the world, I am glad to honor employers who make safety a priority in the workplace,” said Corbett.
Any Pennsylvania employer is eligible for the Governor’s Award for Safety Excellence. Information and criteria used to determine finalists include workplace injuries/illnesses vs. industry standards; and innovation and strategic development of safety policy and approaches.
“Maintaining a safe workplace means maintaining a productive workplace and these employers’ commitment to safety should serve as an example to all Pennsylvania employers,” said Labor & Industry Secretary Julia Hearthway.
The application process for the Governor’s Award for Safety Excellence is highly competitive. The award recognizes successful employer-employee safety programs that produce tangible safety improvements.
