CHICAGO – The American Institute of Steel Construction is pleased to recognize more than 70 steel fabricators and erectors for their outstanding safety records in 2021.

Most of this year’s winners have earned the Institute’s top safety award, the Safety Award of Honor, which is presented for a perfect record of no disabling injuries (DART=0–see below for more info about DART data).

“AISC’s annual Safety Awards program recognizes excellent records of safety performance, and we commend these facilities for their effective accident prevention programs,” said Tom Schlafly, AISC’s director of safety. “Periodic recognition of safety in the workplace has been demonstrated to provide worker incentive and a reminder of the importance of safe practices.”

In order to facilitate data collection and make statistics meaningful in terms familiar to safety professionals, AISC’s Safety Awards program uses data that companies also report to OSHA as measured in terms of Days Away, Restricted or Transferred (DART) rate. The DART measures the number of recordable lost work cases per 200,000 man hours worked. AISC bases the awards on cases (not days) as reported to OSHA on the 300A form, along with the hours worked in the year.

AISC presents a Safety Award of Honor to fabricators and erectors with perfect records (a DART of zero). Those with excellent records (0<DART≤1) earn a Safety Award of Merit, and Safety Commendations recognize companies with DARTs greater than one and less than or equal to two.

The awards program is open to all AISC member fabricators and erectors, and applications for the program are solicited annually. Awards are issued separately for fabrication and erection companies. In order to be eligible to win an award, the member company must submit a copy of their OSHA 300A form for verification purposes.
