The Minnesota Safety Council recognized SEH for its commitment to excellence in workplace safety and health during the 2020 Minnesota and South Dakota Safety and Health Virtual Conference, held October 19-20. This is SEH's second Governor's Safety honor, the first coming in 2018

“It is a pleasure to recognize SEH for their award and safety excellence,” says Paul Aasen, Minnesota Safety Council President. “Safety is about time and attention and diligence. We thank SEH for working hard to keep their employees safe.”

At SEH, we greatly value the safety and well-being of our employees, clients and communities. I am proud to work with employees and a company that embraces safety as their number one priority each day.

Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data compared with their industry’s national statistics and their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program. Winners are recognized at three levels:

  • Award of Honor (54 winners): Incidence rates at least 91% better than the industry average, and a score between 91-100 on the safety program evaluation scale.
     
  • Outstanding Achievement (138 winners): Continuing improvement and/or a continuing outstanding record with incident rates that are 51%-90% better than the industry average, and a score between 75-90 on the safety program evaluation scale.
     
  • Meritorious Achievement (70 winners): Incidence rates that are better than the industry average for at least three years, and a score between 50-74 on the safety program evaluation scale.

SEH received the Outstanding Achievement in Occupational Safety honor.

The Minnesota Safety Council, founded in 1928, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Minnesota by preventing unintentional injuries on the road, at work, at home, and in the community.
