ORGANIZATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT THROUGH STATE SAFETY AWARDS
June 10, 2020
The Minnesota Safety Council has awarded three Governor’s Safety Awards to Egan Company for excellence in safety.
Egan is amongst a very small group of companies to receive an Award of Honor; recipients of this award have incident rates at least 91% better than the industry average and a score between 91 and 100 on the safety program evaluation scale. Egan received the Award of Honor in 2014 as well.
Two Meritorious Achievement Awards were also earned, recognizing an outstanding record and incident rates better than the industry average for at least three years, respectively.
Traditionally, The Minnesota Safety Council honors award winners at its Governor’s Safety Awards Ceremony at its annual conference; however, due to COVID-19 developments, this event has been postponed until Fall 2020.
