The Kentucky Crushed Stone Association (KCSA) announced its 2020 Safety Contest, Milestone and Good Neighbor Award winners. The association recognizes its members each year for safety milestones, plant improvements, being good neighbors and community involvement.
The KCSA Safety Contest Awards are based on MSHA reportable injuries not lost-time injuries. The association also gives special awards to companies who have gone several years without a lost-time injury (Safety Milestone Award). These outstanding safety records deserve to be recognized as these companies demonstrate a commitment to the safety of their employees. Companies who have won Milestone Awards in the past may enter again each year as they may have moved up to the next category. The awards are in five-year increments.
