If your company has a culture that elevates safety to a world-class level, then consider applying to be one of America’s Safest Companies.

Since 2002, more than 200 companies have been honored by EHS Today for their occupational safety, health, environmental and risk management efforts by being named one of America’s Safest Companies. Safety is everyone’s business at these companies, from the newest hire to the CEO and the chairman of the board.

To be considered one of America's Safest Companies, organizations must demonstrate:

  • Support from leadership and management for EHS efforts
  • Employee involvement in the EHS process; innovative solutions to safety challenges
  • Injury and illness rates lower than the average for their industries
  • Comprehensive training programs
  • Evidence that prevention of incidents is the cornerstone of the safety process
  • Good communication about the value of safety
  • A way to substantiate the benefits of the safety process


The application process is open through July 31, 2021.
