Chapter and National Safety Achievement Program Applications Due February 24

NECA is currently accepting applications for its Recognition of Achievement in Safety Programs at both the chapter level and the national level through February 24. If awarded the honors, these are valuable credentials that demonstrate and validate individual contractors’ commitment to safety, and we encourage members to apply for both programs.

Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter Safety Achievement Program

The Chapter’s annual Safety Achievement Program recognizes members that excel in multiple areas of their safety and health programs. Specifically, 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. Within the program, there are two types of awards:

  • The Zero-Injury Recognition Program recognizes member contractors that have worked a full calendar year without recordable incidents.
  • The Safety Achievement Recognition Program recognizes member contractors’ safety performance by analyzing recordable cases compared to the number of labor hours worked. This recognition is awarded in seven categories, according to the volume of labor hours worked.

To date, the Chapter has honored 73 Zero-Industry Recognition Winners and 94 Annual Safety Achievement Program Winners. To learn more and see past winners, visit:

NECA National Safety Achievement Program

The National Recognition of Achievement in Safety Award, organized by NECA National, is separate from the Chapter program, and requires that each member complete a separate application, available at

Several members from our district have been recognized at the national level in the past. This not only provides additional marketing opportunities for member contractors, but is also a testament to our steadfast dedication to safety throughout the Chapter and the region.

Be sure to get your applications in before February 24 and feel free to contact the Chapter with any questions.
