Central Boiler Companies will be recognized for excellence in workplace safety and health during the 2023 Minnesota Safety and Health Conference, May 2-3.
Central Boiler Companies is one of 210 employers to be honored through the awards program, coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council.
“Congratulations to Central Boiler Companies for their hard work, attention and dedication to safety,” said Paul Aasen, president of the Minnesota Safety Council. “Keeping people safe and achieving award-winning performance is no accident. It takes everyone from the front line to executive leadership to help people work safe, drive safe and live safe.”
“We are incredibly honored to be presented with the Governor’s Safety Award for Meritorious Achievement for Excellence in Workplace Safety,” said Dennis Brazier, CEO of Central Boiler Companies. “Safety is our top priority here, and this award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees in making sure that our workplace is safe for everyone.”
Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with their industry’s national statistics, and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program.
Winners are recognized at three levels:
- Meritorious Achievement (84 winners): Incidence rates that are better than the industry average for at least three years, and a score between 50 and 74 on a 100-point safety program evaluation scale.
- Outstanding Achievement (81 winners): Continuing improvement and/or a continuing outstanding record with incident rates that are 51%-90% better than the industry average, and a score between 75 and 90 on the safety program evaluation scale.
- Award of Honor (45 winners): Incidence rates at least 91% better than the industry average, and a score between 91 and 100 on the safety program evaluation scale. Central Boiler Companies received a Meritorious Achievement Award.
