The Wisconsin Corporate Safety Awards are presented in partnership with the Department of Workforce Development and M3 Insurance. The 13 winners were chosen by an independent panel of 33 judges who are safety, health and insurance professionals. Applicants were required to submit data about their 2019 safety records, in addition to providing information about their company’s safety and health leadership, training programs and their safety accomplishments and goals.
“Putting the safety of workers and the public is a goal of every Wisconsin company,” added Huebner. “This year’s winners went above and beyond in accomplishing that goal, and we congratulate each and everyone one of them for earning this prestigious award.”
This year’s Corporate Safety Award winners will be recognized at the 78th Wisconsin Safety Council Annual Conference at the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells from Sept. 1-2 and through a social media campaign during the month of June, which is National Safety Month.
