Coburn Supply; Plumbing Distributors Inc.; and United Pipe & Steel will receive 2016 ASA Member Safety Recognition Awards at the trade association’s Network2017 on Thursday, Oct. 12, at the Omni Nashville Hotel.
The American Supply Association’s Safety Committee also announced three manufacturers – Elkay Mfg. Co.; PRIER Products; and Bestbath – would also receive the safety awards.
To be considered for the award, a company must apply by submitting its OSHA 300A form for the previous year. The OSHA 300A: Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses is a log businesses are required to maintain that summarizes employee injuries against the total number of man-hours logged by employees. The winning companies have the lowest Total Case Incident Rate (TCIR).
The award was created in 2012 and recognizes distributors and manufacturers based on their company’s TCIR. Since the awards’ inception, participation by ASA member companies has doubled and has increased each year.
