MINNEAPOLIS, MN (March 11, 2015) – The Minnesota Safety Council has awarded four Governor’s 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 79 companies to receive an Outstanding Achievement Award; recipients of this award have incident rates that are 52-90% 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, we demand safety—for our employees and for our customers,” said Larry Hanson, Egan Company Safety Director. “This recognition from the Minnesota Safety Council is meaningful testament that we have been effective and remained committed to workplace safety at every level.”
