Greenleaf Landscapes, Inc. announced it has been awarded three national safety awards in the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) annual safety Recognition Awards Program, sponsored by Cigna.
The program reflects PLANET's dedication to creating and maintaining safe work environments in the green industry and is designed to reward green industry companies that consistently demonstrate their commitment to safety.
Safety awards were presented to Greenleaf in the following categories: 1) no work-related vehicle accidents; 2) no work-related injury or illnesses; and 3) no days away from work due to a work-related injury or illness. This makes the sixth consecutive year the company has earned all three awards.
"The prevention of employee injuries is of the utmost importance and a key ingredient to the continued success and growth of our company," said Dave Fleming, Greenleaf Landscapes, Inc. general manager. "We implemented our corporate safety program in 2007 to ensure all employees are properly and thoroughly trained in safe work practices. This recognition demonstrates to our employees and clients that we care. Safety is simply good business."
Companies that enter PLANET's Safety Recognition Awards Program are required to submit a copy of their OSHA 300A Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses report and their year-end vehicle insurance claims summary report. These reports are used in determining award recipients. All award recipients are to be congratulated for their superior dedication to safety excellence.
