Recognition of Safety Achievement Program

The Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter Recognition of Safety Achievement Program was developed in 2006 by the Chapter Marketing Task Force to recognize Member Contractors that excel in multiple areas of their safety and health programs.  The Safety Achievement Program honors Member Contractors that have significantly lower OSHA recordable injury and fatality rates than the industry standard, and incorporate company safety practices above and beyond basic compliance.

The Zero-Injury Recognition Program recognizes those Member Contractors that have worked a full calendar year without recordable incidents.

The Safety Achievement Recognition Program recognizes Member Contractors safety performance by analyzes recordable cases compared to the number of labor hours worked.

There are seven (7) Award Categories:

  • 0  to 25,000 labor hours
  • 25,001 to 50,000 labor hours
  • 50,001 to 100,000 labor hours
  • 100,001 to 150,000 labor hours
  • 150,001 to 3000,000 labor hours
  • 300,001 to 500,000 labor hours
