  • The program highlights ASA member efforts to achieve safety excellence while providing an opportunity to remind member companies of the importance of safety to their own company goals, including financial targets.

  • The program allows ASA to analyze member safety data vs. OSHA-published data on the PHCP and PVF industry.

  • A body of data could provide a future opportunity for ASA to leverage the program into a new forum to share best PHCP and PVF industry practices that could provide benefits to the entire industry.

  • This initiative recognizes safety excellence that exists within the ASA membership and could eventually be a platform to help identify best safety practices that lead to exemplary safety experiences.
