NSSGA’s Safety Award Recipients Announced

WASHINGTON – The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) this morning announced the winners of the Safety Excellence Awards, the Louis Griesemer Sterling Safety Awards and the James M. Christie Safety and Health Professional of the Year Award. 

“Safety is a core value across our members and their operations. We congratulate this year’s winners of the Safety Awards, as they represent the best of our industry in taking every step possible to provide a safe working environment for our most precious resource – our people,” said NSSGA President & CEO Michael Johnson.  

The Safety Excellence Awards recognize operations that maintain a safe workplace, evidenced by its safety performance over a consecutive period without an MSHA-reportable injury. The Louis Griesemer Sterling Safety Awards recognize NSSGA member companies that have the lowest total accident incidence rate for the previous year in their size category. The James M. Christie Safety and Health Professional of the Year Award annually recognizes an individual for substantial commitment and contributions to safe and healthy practices within their company – and the industry. 

During the Legislative & Policy Forum, the Gold Winners in Safety Excellence and the Louis Griesemer Sterling Safety Awards were announced. The 2022 James M. Christie Safety and Health Professional of the Year was awarded to Chris May, the Vice President of Safety and Environmental Operations for Americas Materials Division, with CRH.
