Safety AwardsThe National Association of Landscape Professionals has announced the recipients of its 2017 Safety Recognition Awards. The awards are open to the entire industry and recognize businesses that have an ongoing commitment to safety. Awards were based on the performance period from January 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016.

Categories include “No Vehicle Accidents,” “No Injuries or Illnesses,” and “No Days Away from Work” as well as the “Overall Safety Achievement Award.”

Three ALCC member companies earned silver-level Overall Safety Achievement Awards:

  • Mountain West Environments, Inc. - also recognized for No Vehicle Accidents, No Injuries or Illnesses, and No Days Away From Work
  • Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care - Some locations recognized for no days away from work and no vehicle accidents
  • Timberline Landscaping, Inc. - recognized for no days away from work and no vehicle accidents

These businesses will be recognized on stage during NALP’s LANDSCAPES 2017 Awards Dinner on October 19 in Louisville, Kentucky.

It is also important to note that these businesses benefit from more than just recognition. A successful safety program is also a cost-containment program, saving the company money in lower insurance premiums and accident claims.
