Weldstar Receives the 2016 CGA/GAWDA Distributor Safety Award
The Compressed Gas Association (CGA) announced Weldstar as the winner of the 2016 CGA/GAWDA Distributor Safety Awards at the Gases and Welding Distributors Association (GAWDA) Annual Convention, New York City held October 1 – 4, 2017.
The CGA & GAWDA Distributor Safety Award is awarded to companies showing the greatest improvement in safety performance. The award is based on 5 years of safety data provided by participating companies; utilizing an improvement ratio calculation that compares the sum of the total recordable case incidence rates of the two most recent years with those of the three most remote years is used to determine improvement in safety performance.
This year, over 65 GAWDA Distributor and Canadian Distributor members submitted their 2016 safety data to participate in the CGA & GAWDA Distributor Safety Awards program. The award is presented in two categories based on the total number of employee exposure hours. Weldstar was awarded for more than 100,000 employee exposure hours:
The winning companies are recognized for their safety improvement and were presented with customized bronze plaques. The names of all winning companies are also permanently displayed on a perpetual awards plaque at the CGA office in Chantilly, Virginia.
Congratulations to the entire Weldstar team!
