In recognition of innovation, dedication and best practices, we are now accepting nominations for the eighth annual Excellence in Safety Award. Recognizing the outstanding achievements of safety professionals each year, the Excellence in Safety Award honors those who educate, support, and take action to improve safety on and off the worksite.

Preco_Pg7_BuildingPrecoBrand082416-4Since its inception, the Excellence in Safety Award has recognized and honored safety professionals and leaders who have contributed significantly to the development of best practices and successful safety programs across the heavy-duty industries. 

Past recipients, Michal Posz, and dual 2016 Excellence in Safety Award recipients SWANA’s David Biderman and the City of Oxnard Environmental Resources Division’s George Van Hemert, represent the difference effective safety strategies make within the heavy-duty industries.

Through his proactive vision, Michael Posz, Director of Safety at Fraley & Schilling and the 2017 Excellence in Safety Award recipient, decreased incident rates by 50 percent as his fleet doubled in size after he introduced new technology, increased education, and added onboard trainings for his operators.
