We invite your organization to participate in the Governor's Workplace Safety Awards, which recognize Minnesota employers for excellence in safety. Online application for the next awards cycle will open by the end of January 2014.
In addition to providing injury data, you'll also complete the Safety Program Evaluation Scorecard. The scorecard was developed by a team of experienced safety professionals from organizations that are members of the Minnesota Safety Council. It measures progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program. The application is a secure page, and all information you provide is confidential. Your total points on the scorecard and your incidence rates will be calculated for you automatically. After submitting your application, you will receive a confirmation e-mail that will include your total points for the Safety Program Evaluation Scorecard.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT REPORTING FOR MULTIPLE UNITS WITHIN YOUR ORGANIZATION:
You may elect to submit separate applications for various establishments/branches within your organization if the reporting units have twenty or more employees each and maintain their safety results separately within your organization.
If you are submitting more than one application, be sure to enter a DISTINCT "Company Name" in each application, e.g. by adding the location or the function of the unit to your company name. (This is especially important if your divisions are at the same address.)
