Safety Program Awareness & Retention Kit (SPARK) Award

The Safety Program Awareness & Retention Kit (SPARK) is a self-assessment that helps companies assess their safety standards and practices. Companies that meet the requirements will receive national recognition and a certificate. 

IEC-CNA Safety Award

The IEC-CNA Safety Award recognizes and awards companies that excel beyond Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recordable incidence rates. We will seek to reward companies that have taken safety beyond traditional programs. Our analysis will take into account important safety program components including: management commitment, safety committee participation, investigation of incidents/near misses, employee involvement, worksite auditing for unsafe acts and conditions, recognition of safe actions, and recordable rates. Award winners are presented with a professional quality IEC-CNA Safety Award, a press release to share with local media, and an electronic “Safety Award Winner” icon for use on any publication, website, or promotion. Winners also may use the following phrase on any publication, website, or letterhead to promote the company’s elite category safety program: “Winner of the 2020 IEC-CNA Safety Award” (for up to three years following the presentation of the award). The runner-up will receive a second-place award. 


Remember, the deadline to submit a nomination is July 15, 2020.
