Occupational safety is an integral part of a competitive plastics industry that values the nearly 900 thousand workers it employs. SPI presents the Safety Statistics and Awards (SSA) Program as a way to gather more information on safety in the industry and to recognize facilities that have achieved a high level of safety performance. Awards are based on data reported on a company's annual OSHA 300 Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses.
With sufficient participation, SPI can calculate statistics for both the overall participants and specific industry segments.
SPI currently recognizes those work sites that qualify for one of four certificate awards. This year we had a total of 126 submissions from 30 companies. Based on 2011 data, there were 39 Distinguished Safety Awards, 22 Achievement Safety Awards, 20 Merit Safety Awards, and 34 Special Recognition awards issued. To see a full list of this year’s participants please click here. Thank you to all of the companies that participated in the 2011 SSA program.
