ARMA Honors Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers and Facilities for Achievements in Workplace Safety

The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) has recognized 13 asphalt roofing manufacturers and 107 individual facilities for their commitment to workplace safety. ARMA’s annual Accident Prevention Contest honors individual roofing manufacturing facilities across North America for their low incident rates among workers this past year.

The winners of the 2017 Accident Prevention Contest were selected based on their quarterly safety data reports from this past calendar year submitted to ARMA’s Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) Committee. The facilities were judged on the number of hours completed and an ARMA INDEX derived from the criteria and standards set by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

“Over the years, ARMA has been proud to honor the asphalt roofing manufacturing facilities that demonstrate a commitment toward workplace health and safety,” says Reed Hitchcock, ARMA executive vice president. “As a whole, the asphalt roofing industry is dedicated to maintaining and improving safety, from manufacturing to installation.”

The ARMA Accident Prevention Contest is open to all manufacturer members. They can submit data from their entire company, a specific division, or an individual plant or mill in North America. The winners are honored in four different categories, the President’s Award; the Award of Excellence; the Perfect Employee Safety Certificate and the Certificate of Improvement.

President’s Award: Presented to the plant in each contest category that has the lowest combined ARMA INDEX over a two-year period.

Award of Excellence: Presented to plants that have recorded three consecutive years of a perfect ARMA INDEX (an index of 0) and are not President’s Award winners.
