Below our statements from past award winners on the value of the award:

Safety is the number-one core value at NIBCO. All NIBCO associates work very hard to complete their duties in a safe manner, not every day but every minute of every day. I believe they deserve the recognition for this great work with internal and external service awards such as the ASA Safety Award.

- Ricky Bryant, Corporate Compliance Manager, NIBCO

Safety is a culture that starts at the top of every organization. Our solid safety record at Wolff Bros. Supply, Inc. has developed through many years of reinforcing safety behaviors at all levels. We believe the little things matter. Whether we are recognizing an employee in our company newsletter for submitting a safety suggestion, or displaying the ASA Safety Award recognizing our whole company, it is these consistent messages that continue the right culture. We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to be part of ASA and see so much value in the actions required to submit an application for this award among so many great companies. Competing for the award makes us better; receiving it is icing on the cake.

- Bill Green, HR Director and Safety Manager, Wolff Brothers Supply
