PDCA SAFETY ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
The National PDCA Safety Achievement Award recognizes outstanding service and contributions in the field of safety.
The PDCA Insurance, Safety, and Loss Control Committee established the Safety Achievement Award in 1995 to recognize the efforts of member companies who have made a commitment to safety in the workplace by demonstrating and providing evidence of their success in controlling accidents and losses within their companies.
Proper safety in the workplace is an essential ingredient in protecting employees. Construction related work is dangerous and every effort should be made to assure employees will be as safe as possible. PDCA is committed to safety in the workplace each year as an exemplification of that commitment; PDCA awards those companies that place extraordinary focus on workplace safety. The PDCA Safety Awards are held in high esteem and are offered to present a clear indication of the importance PDCA places on workplace safety. Three (3) awards will be presented: Gold, Silver and Bronze.
Part I - Using information from your OSHA 300 and/or other accidents records, a comparison will be made between your company and the national average for the painting & decorating profession and industry. The formulas provided (see glossary) represent percentages and will insure that all contractors can participate on an equal basis. From Workers' Compensation data, a calculation of the Experience Modification Rate (EMR) or Loss Ratio (LR) will provide a comparison of your company's history of losses.
Part II - Self-Audit of your safety program. This will provide PDCA will a measure of your efforts to prevent accidents.
