NIA’s Safety Excellence Award Winners

The National Insulation Association (NIA) announces the Safety Excellence Award  winners at its Annual Convention. The Safety Excellence Award is NIA’s highest industry honor and the only national award for outstanding safety performance in the mechanical insulation industry. NIA created the award program in 2004 to recognize top companies that have established structured safety programs to ensure the well-being of their employees and create safe working environments.

With input from the Health and Safety Committee, NIA's Board of Directors changed the name of the award to NIA's Safety Excellence Award. (Formerly known as the Theodore H. Brodie Distinguished Safety Award.)
