The Kentucky Crushed Stone Association (KCSA) presented its 2016 safety awards at its Summer Meeting.
“The KCSA Safety Contest Awards are based on MSHA reportable injuries not lost-time injuries,” the association said. “We also give special awards to companies that have gone several years without a lost-time injury (Safety Milestone Award). Such outstanding safety records deserve to be recognized since they demonstrate a company’s real commitment to the safety of its employees. Those companies who have won Milestone Awards in the past may enter again each year as they may have moved up to the next category.”
