18 Companies Receive Safety Awards


The Fond du Lac Area Safety Council – a division of the Fond du Lac Area Association of Commerce, recently honored area companies for their commitment to safety in the workplace. 

Thirteen area companies were awarded a Gold Safety Honor Award and five area companies were awarded a Silver Safety Honor Award at the March 19 Annual Safety Day. These awards were introduced several years ago to recognize area companies for their outstanding safety records.

Award winners were identified by comparing the company’s incident rate to the industry standard for their specific SIC.  If both the company’s incident rate and DART rate were less than industry standard, a Gold Award was given.  If only one was less than industry standard, a Silver Award was given.

The award criterion also compares a company's safety record to the Wisconsin average for similar businesses.  The winning companies had a level of achievement that exceeded the average.  It is an outstanding accomplishment, one that deserves recognition by the Fond du Lac Area Safety Council and the entire Fond du Lac community.  Companies receiving awards include:
