PLANET's Safety Recognition
PLANET, the national trade association that represents more than 100,000 landscape industry professionals, has announced the winners of the 2013 Safety Recognition Awards.
The Professional Landcare Network and CNA, its awards program sponsor, have announced the recipients of this year's Safety Recognition Awards. The program is designed to acknowledge landscape industry professionals who consistently demonstrate their commitment to safety.
"PLANET and CNA are both committed to helping companies maintain the highest safety standards," said Craig Clark, chair of PLANET's Safety Committee. "These awards recognize and encourage companies to increase the level of safety in the industry as a whole."
This year, 156 companies submitted entries and 361 awards were earned for the performance period from January 1, 2013, through December 13, 2013.
Award categories include "No Vehicle Accidents," "No Injuries or Illnesses," and "No Days Away From Work" as well as the "Overall Safety Achievement Award." Companies that participated in previous programs were also eligible for the "Most Improved" category.
The "Overall Safety Achievement" award honors those companies with high-performing safety programs that create and maintain safe work environments in the landscape industry. Companies are eligible for this award if they demonstrate outstanding safety performance in the workplace based on their combined fleet and employee incident rates.
The "Best of the Best" award was earned by the following companies who, for the past three years, have maintained the "Overall Safety Achievement Award - Gold Level" status:
• Fox Run Nurseries, Inc., Alexandria, Va.
• Greenleaf Services, Inc. Linville, N.C.
• KIRA, Inc. - Mayport, Fla.
• Mirrorscapes, LLC, Lancaster, Ohio
• Keeping It Green Landcaping, York, Penn.
• No Ka Oi Landscape Services, Hanapepe, Hawaii
Recipients of the "Best of the Best," "Most Improved," and "Overall Safety Achievement" awards will be recognized on stage during PLANET's Green Industry Conference awards recognition dinner on October 23, 2014, in Louisville, Ky.
