ILTA Safety Survey & Recognition Program

The 2023 ILTA Safety Survey is Now Open!

ILTA is excited to be moving forward with a newly improved safety survey and awards program.

For our 2023 Safety Awards program, the ILTA Health and Safety Committee updated the selection process to include a focus on leading safety indicators to complement a company’s total recordable incident rate (TRIR) for the previous year.

Both submissions will be required for a company to be eligible to receive an ILTA Safety Excellence Award. 

Part one of the 2023 ILTA Safety Survey is now open and can be accessed here. 

The part one survey consists of 20 questions.  Each question will ask you to evaluate leading indicators related to multiple aspects of your company’s safety program. It is important that you and your team review the questions and the rating rubric prior to completing the survey. Please find that information here.

 Please note the following:
 Only one survey will be accepted per company. 

  • Please note you will not be able to save your work.  
  • You must complete the survey in one sitting.

Part two of the 2023 ILTA Safety Survey is now open and can be accessed here.

This Excel-based part two survey is the 2023 Terminal Member Survey of 2022 OSHA Statistics and is based on U.S. OSHA Forms 300 and 300A.

Once completed, please email the Excel spreadsheet to by Monday, March 27.

To receive the 2023 ILTA Safety Excellence Award, companies were required to score in the top two quartiles for both the leading indicator survey and the lagging indicator survey (OSHA data).

      If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Christopher Meilink at or 856-375-9407. 

Thank you for your participation!
