Safety and Health Awards
- Safety Excellence Award
The Safety Excellence Awards, originated in 1987, are presented based on the ability of an individual mine site to maintain a safe workplace, evidenced by its safety performance over a consecutive period of time without an MSHA reportable injury.
- Sterling Award
The Sterling Safety Award, created in 1994, recognizes individual companies' safety performances. The individual producer company that achieves the lowest total incidence rate for the previous calendar year (in its respective category) will receive top honors. In the event of a tie, competitors' total incident rates in preceding, consecutive years are compared until the best incidence rate is identified.
