Safety Awards



Safety Awards


There are multiple safety award programs available to our members on both chapter and national levels. Applications for all awards are online only. This year's Safety Award Luncheon has been changed to December 3, 2020 (register).

CHAPTER SAFETY AWARDS   The Chapter Safety Awards program is designed to recognize those ABC Mississippi member companies that promote safety awareness. The program is designed as an excellent template to measure safety effectiveness and we encourage all members to participate. ABC Mississippi members submit applications and documentation to be judged to receive various levels of awards in safety. The entries are carefully judged against specific safety criteria by the ABC Mississippi Safety Committee. Chapter Awards are recognized at the Gold, Silver, and Bronze level at our annual Safety Awards Luncheon.


SAFETY PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR AWARD   Annually, ABC Mississippi member companies may enter a safety professional to compete for the ABC Mississippi Safety Professional of the Year Award. This award is open to any individual with 36+ months experience with the direct responsibility for the safety, health, and compliance for his/her organization, and who has shown exemplary achievement, performance, safety culture and commitment towards the safety and well-being of fellow employees of his/her organization. This prestigious award began in 2011 and has become one of the highlights of the ABC Mississippi Chapter Safety Awards Luncheon. 


RISING STAR AWARD   This award is new in 2019! ABC Mississippi member company owners submit applications entering their individual "rising star" safety professional to compete for the ABC Mississippi Rising Star Award. This award is open to any individual that has been in the safety field for 12+ months and for no more than 36 months. The winner will be recognized at the ABC Mississippi Chapter Safety Awards Luncheon.  


ABC NATIONAL STEP SAFETY AWARDS   Established in 1989, the Safety Training and Evaluation Process (STEP) serves as a valuable tool for ABC members to consistently build upon their safety training programs and gain recognition for their outstanding efforts. Applications are submitted online to ABC National to compete for the STEP awards. ABC Mississippi member recognition occurs at ABC Mississippi's annual Safety Awards Luncheon each fall. 


WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT AWARDS   This award recognizes companies that excel in their company's workforce development programs. It focuses on vital areas of workforce development including management commitment, recruitment and training & retention. First place will receive the Workforce Development Award of Excellence and second place will receive the Workforce Development Award of Achievement. Winners are recognized at our annual Merit Awards Banquet in November. Stay tuned for application links!
