Safety Zone Awards

Georgia Urban Ag Council Safety Zone Awards

UAC Safety Zone awards recognize UAC business-level member companies who have implemented safety and loss prevention programs through management commitment, employee involvement, and program innovation.

Picture yourself a winner!

Don’t miss this opportunity to step up and get recognized for your safety efforts.

You already have what you need

  • For the Safety First awards (Vehicle Safety, Health, and Lost Time) you just need to fill out the online application and submit your OSHA form 300A.

No calculations, less paperwork

  • Now there are no set minimums for accidents or incidents. Instead, your OSHA form 300A will be compared to other entries, based on fleet and company size.
  • Whoever has the lowest numbers, wins!

More ways to win

  • If you have a smart phone, you can enter!
  • Just snap some photos and press the record button to document your safety efforts.
  • It’s that easy – no professional photographers or videographers required.

Do it all online

  • The entry form is completely online – just fill out the form and upload your documents. Couldn’t be simpler.

Some surprises in store

  • UAC’s Safety Committee is planning to sweeten the pot for the 2017 Safety Zone Awards. Stay tuned!

Why enter?

Public recognition

  • Winning companies will be listed on UAC’s website and the award will be included on your company’s individual UAC web profile page, increasing your credibility and visibility.
  • UAC will provide you with a press release to publicize your company’s proactive approach to safety.

Safety impacts your business

  • Safety and health performance are important to the overall success of your company. You can protect your employees by reducing and preventing exposure to hazards.
  • A safe work environment results in less absenteeism, higher morale and enhanced relationships between labor and management.
  • Obviously, employees benefit when injuries and illnesses decline, but so can your company’s bottom line.
  • Dollar savings can be dramatic, including substantial reductions in workers’ compensation expenses.
  • Good safety ratings can make you more competitive when bidding for new projects.

Getting in the Safety Zone will make your business OSHA-ready

  • Having documented safety programs in place greatly reduces your exposure to OSHA-related violations and fines.
