Safety Award

The N.C. Department of Labor’s Safety Awards Program recognizes private and public firms throughout the state that achieve and maintain good safety records. The program is designed to stimulate interest in accident prevention and to promote safety in the workplace by providing an incentive to employers and employees to maintain a safe and healthful workplace.

In operation since 1946, the program now extends to more than 3,300 firms, and about 2,000 awards are presented annually. Two types of awards are administered through the program: Annual Safety Awards and Million-Hour Awards.

Annual Safety Award

To qualify for an annual safety award, a firm must:

  • Have had no fatalities during the calendar year at the site or location for which the award was given; and
  • Have maintained an incidence rate at least 50 percent below the average for its particular industry group.
