The 2015 ASA Member Safety Recognition Awards will also be presented to three wholesaler-distributors and two manufacturers at Network2015. “This year, we saw another increase in participation in the awards program, showing once again a heightened sense of awareness that safety in the workplace is critical,” said ASA Safety Committee Chairman Michael Place of the Dakota Supply Group. “Recognizing companies that excel in their employees’ safety is a great motivator to maintaining a safe
work environment.”

The award was created in 2012 and recognizes distributors and manufacturers based on their company’s total man-hours. This year includes two first-time award winners and three previous winners. Since the awards’ inception, participation by ASA member companies has doubled.
