The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) has opened its 2020 Safety Recognition Award Program. The annual program, now in its 35th year, runs January 1 – December 31 and encourages SGIA members to integrate health and safety into standard business practices.

SGIA member companies receive “points” for specific safety activities and initiatives, such as developing a new safety policy, creating a safety training program for new hires and providing worker safety training. Participants then submit documentation for each activity, and all companies that earn 80 points or more will receive an award and recognition on the SGIA website, with the three top-performing companies receiving additional recognition.

“Safety in our industry is paramount,” says Marci Kinter, Vice President, Government Affairs, SGIA. “Studies show that companies that focus on safety and health issues see improved performance in areas, ranging from morale and productivity, to operating and insurance costs. This is a great way for member companies to develop, and see how others develop, comprehensive safety initiatives in the workplace.”
