ALABAMA WORKPLACE SAFETY AWARDS

Good safety practices protect the earning power of the State’s workforce and result in reduced operating costs for employers. Alabama’s Workplace Safety Awards Program recognizes those employers who, together with their employees, exemplify a high level of safety consciousness in their every day operations. The awards are based on a demonstrated safety record.

Award Categories

An “Award of Excellence” will be presented to any employer that has experienced no lost-time injuries for a period of 12 or more consecutive months.

An “Award of Superior Achievement” will be presented to any employer that has experienced no lost-time injuries for a period of 24 or more consecutive months.

To receive an award:
Documentation must be obtained from the employer’s OSHA Log and/or Insurance Carrier attesting that no lost-time injuries have been experienced for a period of 12 or 24 months. A copy of this document must be included with a letter requesting the award for an employer.

The letter must certify that a written occupational safety and health program has been established and is being implemented.

Request for awards, together with all necessary documentation, should be mailed to:
