Indiana Workplace Safety Awards Seeking Nominees
Nominations are currently being sought for the 2009 Governor's Workplace Safety Awards, which recognize the most innovative safety and health initiatives among Indiana's workplaces. Awards are offered in four categories: innovations, partnerships, education and outreach, and construction (residential, specialty contractor or general contractor.)
The awards are a result of a partnership among government, business and safety leaders: the Indiana Department of Labor, on behalf of Gov. Mitch Daniels, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and the Central Indiana Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers. The safety awards are open to all organizations, regardless of size or number of workers affected. All Hoosier businesses, unions, municipalities, schools, service organizations, nonprofit organizations or individuals are eligible to apply for the awards.
To qualify, a company must be deemed to be free of compliance disputes concerning all applicable local, state and federal statutes and regulations. Foremost, applicants should demonstrate a strong commitment to workplace safety and health.
