ASA To Award Member Industrial Distributors For Outstanding Safety

Industrial Distributors in Wisconsin, Georgia, and West Virginia will be honored Oct. 27 in Chicago, as well as two industrial manufacturers.

ITASCA, IL — The volunteer leaders of the American Supply Association’s Safety Committee have announced that the 2015 ASA Member Safety Recognition Awards will be presented to three wholesaler-distributors and two manufacturers at Network2015 on Tuesday, Oct. 27, at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile.

To be considered for the award, a company must apply by submitting their OSHA 300A form with the previous calendar year’s data.

The winning companies have the lowest Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR) in the category.

"This year, we saw another increase in participation in the awards program, showing once again a heighten sense of awareness that safety in the workplace is critical," said ASA Safety Committee Chairman Michael Place of the Dakota Supply Group. "Recognizing companies that excel in their employees’ safety is a great motivator to maintaining a safe work environment."
