Asphalt Roofing Facilities Across North America Earn Workplace Safety Awards

More than 50 asphalt roofing manufacturing facilities have been recognized for workplace safety by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA). ARMA’s annual Accident Prevention Contest honors individual roofing manufacturing facilities across North America for their low incident rates among workers.

The winners of the 2018 Accident Prevention Contest were selected based on their exemplary quarterly safety data reports from this past calendar year. The facilities were judged on the number of hours completed and an ARMA INDEX derived from the criteria and standards set by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

“ARMA and its member companies are committed to providing a safe work environment across the industry,” said ARMA’s Executive Vice President Reed Hitchcock. “Year after year, asphalt roofing manufacturers continue to demonstrate the high quality and safety of their work environments.”

ARMA’s Accident Prevention Contest is open to all manufacturer members. They can submit data from their entire company, a specific division, or an individual plant or mill in North America. The winners are honored in four different categories: the President’s Award, the Award of Excellence, the Perfect Employee Safety Certificate and the Certificate of Improvement.

President’s Award: Presented to the plant in each contest category that has the lowest combined ARMA INDEX over a two-year period.
