Judging is based on an empirical analysis of reported injuries and incidents, safety and drug testing programs, industry-standard safety metrics and each company’s root-cause analysis system. 

“Because safety is the cornerstone of our culture, we are particularly proud of receiving this recognition in consecutive years,” said Pat Michels, President and CEO, Michels. “Safety performance is the responsibility of everyone, from our field workers and project managers to our leadership teams. I am profoundly grateful for our people who incorporate safety into all you do.”
