ILTA Safety Survey and Awards Program Sees Record Participation in 2021
ILTA is delighted to announce that participation in this year’s Safety Survey and Awards Program hit record highs, with 49 companies submitting a safety survey and 18 companies applying for the Platinum Safety Award.
Every year, ILTA terminal member companies can voluntarily submit their OSHA-required safety information to compare against their industry colleagues anonymously. ILTA uses this data to produce an annual safety report, benchmarking the terminal industry’s overall safety trends against prior years. This year, ILTA partnered with RCP Inc., a professional engineering consulting company, to help collect and interpret the submitted information.
Several awards are assigned based on a company’s safety performance, including the Safety Excellence Award, which is given to companies that maintain an OSHA Total Recordable Incidence Rate of less than 0.75. In addition, the Safety Milestone Award is given to companies that earn the Safety Excellence Award for five and ten consecutive years.
ILTA also awards two Platinum Safety Awards, one for a large company defined as having 200 or more full-time employees and one for a small company with fewer than 200 full-time employees. To qualify for the Platinum Safety Award, companies must have a TRIR rate of less than 0.5 in the last calendar year, complete a lengthy application packet detailing their safety programs and performance and submit a Terminal Operating Practices Symposium presentation application. The selection process is still ongoing and involves a panel of industry experts from several companies who read and evaluate all applications submitted.
The winners for this year’s Platinum Safety Award will be announced in the middle of July. ILTA thanks the following participating companies that have helped to make this year’s program the strongest it has ever been:
