“Employers who prioritize safety lead successful businesses,” said L&I Secretary Jennifer Berrier. “The prioritization of workplace safety standards plays a major role in preventing injury and creating a workplace culture of mutual trust between employer and employees.”

Information and criteria used to determine finalists include workplace injuries/illnesses versus industry standards, and innovation and strategic development of safety policy and approaches.
