Parsons Safety Team Receives Governor's Safety Award of Honor

Parsons’ Safety Team, led by Safety Director Bonnie Lunzer, accepts the Governor’s Safety Award of Honor.

The Award of Honor is the highest award given by the Minnesota Safety Council. To receive it, an organization’s DART rate (Injuries without days away, restrictions, and/or transfers) must be at least 91% better than the average company in our industry. This also includes a Safety Program Evaluation score between 91 and 100 points.

The Safety Program Evaluation looks at four areas of our safety program:

  • Responsibilities and accountabilities
  • Hazard identification, control, and analysis
  • Incident investigation
  • Communication and training

Parsons had a great safety record in 2016. In addition to the Governor’s Safety Award, Parsons qualified for and received two different awards from the National Safety Council:

  • Perfect Record Award – recognizes companies that completed a period of at least twelve consecutive months without injury that resulted in time away from work or fatality
  • Million Work Hours Award – recognizes companies that have zero work-related illness, injuries, or fatalities involving time away from work for at least 1 million consecutive hours. Parsons not only met the requirement but as of 12/31/2016, we actually achieved 3.5 million hours without a time away from work injury!

The Parsons family of companies believes every employee should go home safe and sound every night. Thank you to our entire team for making safety our culture.
