Since 2002, EHS Today (Environment, Health, & Safety Today) has recognized America’s Safest Companies, honoring those whose focus is on developing and maintaining world-class safety cultures. Each year, companies from all types of industries submit applications for review, and EHS selects 10-15 standouts to receive this prestigious award.
This year, we are proud to announce that Amprical has claimed one of the 2021 spots. The organizations identified as America’s Safest Companies represent safety excellence and come in all shapes and sizes, including firms with a few dozen employees to multinational corporations with tens of thousands of employees. Together, all chosen organizations have one thing in common: to provide a safe working environment for their employees.
To be considered for the title of America’s Safest Company, Ampirical had to demonstrate “support from leadership and management for EHS efforts, employee involvement in the EHS process, innovative solutions to safety challenges, injury and illness rates lower than the average for the organization’s respective industry, comprehensive training programs, evidence that prevention of incidents is the cornerstone of the safety process, good communication about the value of safety, and a way to substantiate the benefits of the safety process.” (America’s Safest Companies, EHS Today)
While this award means a lot to the company, Ampirical’s culture of continuous improvement and commitment to safety means the organization’s ultimate goal is zero injuries.
“You cannot eliminate injuries by managing statistics better,” says Matthew Saacks, Ampirical President. “We will not be satisfied with our performance on any job unless we can say the job was done accident-free and without jeopardy to the health and safety of all those involved.”
Ampirical strives to maintain an ongoing, aggressive commitment to provide all employees with a safe and healthy place of employment. Through its safety program, on-going safety training, safety policy and practices, and a full-time safety team, employees are given the knowledge and skills to ensure their safety in the workplace.
All award recipients will be honored at EHS Today’s Virtual Safety Leadership Conference on November 10 and featured in a special section of the latest issue of EHS Today magazine (featured here).
