The national program is designed to acknowledge landscape industry professionals who consistently demonstrate their commitment to safety. All landscape industry companies and branches are eligible to enter NALP’s Safety Recognition Awards.

This year 170 companies submitted entries and 379 awards were earned for the performance period from Jan. 1, 2015, through Dec. 13, 2015.

Award categories include “No Vehicle Accidents,” “No Injuries or Illnesses,” “No Days Away From Work” and the “Overall Safety Achievement Award.” Companies that participated in previous programs were also eligible for the “Most Improved” category.

The “Overall Safety Achievement” award honors those companies with high-performing safety programs that create and maintain safe work environments in the landscape 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.

The “Best of the Best” award was earned by the following companies who, for the past three years, have maintained the “Overall Safety Achievement Award–Gold Level” status:

  • Alliance Landscape Co., Fort Worth, Texas;
  • Arlington Lawn Care, Lake City, Pa.;
