Scot Forge Recognized Again As One Of America's Safest Companies

EHS Today Magazine names Scot Forge one of 16 companies to receive the 2019 America's Safest Company award.

This is the second time that the employee-owners of Scot Forge have received the award, with the first time being in 2014 when their company became the first forging company ever recognized. 

 "As employee-owners, our first responsibility is to complete each task without compromising our own personal safety and the safety of others," explains Joseph Lyons, safety leader. "We live this by looking out for one another, helping others and intervening when we recognize a hazard—behavioral or physical."

 Each year, EHS Today Magazine invites companies from all industries to submit an application that demonstrates strong participation in the environmental, health and safety process. From those applications, EHS Today Magazine selects 15 to 20 companies that have gone above and beyond safety culture standards, and then recognizes them as one of America's Safest Companies.


Once a company has won once, they must wait five years to resubmit an application. This waiting period is designed to challenge companies to make their processes even more remarkable because their next application is judged off of an already world-class process. Over the past 17 years, the magazine has recognized more than 200 companies with the award.
