On May 14, MPW Environmental Services, Inc. accepted a 2017 Thomas J. Reynolds Award for achieving a Zero Days Away/Restricted or Job Transfer (DART) Rate.
The national award is presented by The Association of Union Contractors (TAUC) as part of its 35th annual safety awards program.
“MPW is honored to receive this award from TAUC,” said MPW General Manager Jimmy Peck. “Safety is our top priority, so any time we are recognized for our safety performance, it’s extremely important to us.”
DART Rate is a mathematical calculation that describes the number of recordable incidents per 100 full-time employees that resulted in lost or restricted days or job transfer due to work related injuries or illnesses.
MPW’s award is for 500,000-1 million hours worked without a DART Case. Eleven other companies accepted awards in this category.
This is the first time MPW has been recognized for this honor.
The awards were created in 1983 by TAUC’s predecessor organization, the National Erectors Association (NEA), to recognize and commend the exceptional efforts made by members to prevent the occurrence of serious injury — or worse — on the jobsite.
