Congratulations, Safety Award Winners

Congratulations, Safety Award Winners

The following Safety Award winners represent the top-performing facilities in FIA’s 2016 Occupational Injury & Illness Survey.

The survey collected data for several safety categories. To determine Safety Award winners, FIA placed all facilities that participated in the survey into one of four groups based on number of employees. This ensured each location would be judged fairly against similarly sized competitors. The facilities in each group with the lowest recordable incident rates were eligible for awards, provided their DART (days away from work, work restrictions and job transfer cases) rates were less than the group average. These rates were calculated using data from OSHA Form No. 300 or Canadian Workers’ Compensation Reports.

The FIA Safety Award winners for 2016 are:

Group IV (more than 325 employees)
First place: Forja De Monterrey, S.A. de C.V.

Group III (176–325 employees)
First place: Scot Forge Co. Spring Grove Division

Group II (81–175 employees)
First place: AccuGear

Group I (less than 81 employees)
First place: Asahi Bluegrass Forge
First place: King Forge and Machine
First place: Michigan Forge
First place: Rockford Drop Forge

The Occupational Injury & Illness Survey is part of FIA’s dynamic benchmarking platform. The platform enables participants to log in at any time and customize reports to show only the information they need, which helps streamline the benchmarking process.
