ARMA Recognizes 77 Asphalt Roofing Manufacturer Facilities for Workplace Safety

The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) has completed its annual Accident Prevention Contest and is proud to recognize 77 asphalt roofing manufacturer facilities for their workplace safety, specifically low incident rates among workers.

Facilities that entered the 2020 Accident Prevention Contest were judged based on ARMA criteria derived from the standards set by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This information is gathered through quarterly safety data reports from the past calendar year.

“The commitment that ARMA members have to providing a safe work environment for all employees is steadfast and making a difference,” says ARMA’s Executive Vice President Reed Hitchcock. “We are pleased to see these facilities continuing to maintain high standards in plant health and safety.”

All of ARMA’s manufacturer members are invited to participate in the Accident Prevention Contest by submitting data from their entire company, a specific division, or an individual plant or mill in North America. Winners are honored in four different categories, with a “perfect” score meaning that zero safety incidents were recorded.
