Over 100 Asphalt Facilities Honored by ARMA for Achievements in Workplace Safety

Annual Safety Contest Recognizes Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers with Exceptional Employee Safety Records

Washington D.C. (June 4, 2018) – The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) has recognized 13 asphalt roofing manufacturers and 107 individual facilities for their commitment to workplace safety. ARMA’s annual Accident Prevention Contest honors individual roofing manufacturing facilities across North America for their low incident rates among workers this past year.

The winners of the 2017 Accident Prevention Contest were selected based on their exemplary quarterly safety data reports from this past calendar year submitted to ARMA’s Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) Committee. 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).

“Over the years, ARMA has been proud to honor the asphalt roofing manufacturing facilities that demonstrate a commitment toward workplace health and safety,” said Reed Hitchcock, ARMA’s Executive Vice President. “As a whole, the asphalt roofing industry is dedicated to maintaining and improving safety, from manufacturing to installation.”

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.
