Egan Company Earns Governor’s Workplace Safety Awards

The Minnesota Safety Council awarded four Governor’s Workplace Safety Awards to Egan Company for superior performance in workplace safety and health.

“Employers like Egan Company know that safety isn’t automatic,” said Paul Aasen, President of the Minnesota Safety Council. “It takes attention, dedication, and continuous effort to protect employees.”

Egan is one of 77 companies to receive an Outstanding Achievement Award; recipients of this award have incident rates that are 51-90% better than the industry average and a score between 75 and 90 on the safety program evaluation scale. Egan also received three Meritorious Achievement Awards recognizing an outstanding record and incident rates better than the industry average for at least three years, respectively.

“At Egan, safety is our priority,” said Larry Hanson, Egan Company Safety Director. “This recognition from the Minnesota Safety Council indicates that we have been effective and remained committed to workplace safety at every level.”

Egan is one of 314 Minnesota employers who will be recognized at the Governor’s Safety Awards luncheon at the Minneapolis Convention Center on May 5. To read more about the scorecard and award categories, visit the Minnesota Safety Council.
