PLANET - Safety Awards

The 2013 PLANET Safety Awards have been announced. KIRA has received 21 awards based on 2012's outstanding safety performance, which is also reflected in the firm's .73 EMR.

PLANET's Safety Recognition Awards Program, sponsored by CNA, is designed to reward green industry professionals who consistently demonstrate their commitment to safety, and reflects the dedication of these individuals and their companies to creating and maintaining safe work environments.

Program participants also may qualify for the Overall Safety Achievement Award. This award honors those companies with thorough, high-performing, safety programs that create and maintain safe work environments in the green industry. Companies are eligible for this award if they demonstrate outstanding safety performance in the workplace based on their combined fleet and employee incident rates. A checklist also is used to rate the company's complete safety program.

The 2013 program covers the time period of January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012. The program reflects KIRA's dedication to creating and maintaining safe work environments for their employees and customers. Many of KIRA's project sites have also received recognition in this program as well.
