Many companies in the green industry have stepped up their safety game — and have been rewarded for it, according to a review of the 2020 Safety Awards presented by the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP).

“The NALP Safety Awards program recognizes landscape and lawn companies that consistently achieve strong safety records,” says Britt Wood, NALP CEO. “Achieving these safety milestones reflects their dedication to creating and maintaining safe work environments, which is essential to running a good business.”

Below are a few figures that stood out from this year’s awards.

127 companies and their branches entered the awards this year, and 119 won a safety award for their 2019 safety data year.

77 companies received a “No Days Away from Work” award.

73 companies received a “No Vehicle Accidents” award.

53 companies received a “No Injuries and Illnesses” award.

53 companies received an “Overall Safety Achievement — Gold” award.

22 companies were new to the Safety Recognition Awards this year.

12 companies received the prestigious “Best of the Best” award, which is given to companies receiving an “Overall Safety Achievement Award — Gold” for the past three consecutive years.

5 of the 12 “Best of the Best” recipients were Aspen Grove Landscape Group companies.

This year, due to COVID-19, each company is receiving their awards separately. The NALP will open the entry process for the 2021 Safety Recognition Awards (2020 safety record year) in January 2021.
