Capital Safety Earns Governor’s Safety Award

RED WING, Minn. — April 3, 2014 — Capital Safety, home of the DBI-SALA® and PROTECTA® brands, has been awarded the prestigious Governor’s Safety Award by the Minnesota Safety Council for superior performance in workplace safety and health.  Capital Safety will be recognized at the Governor’s Safety Awards luncheon on May 8th. 

According to Kevin Coplan, President of Capital Safety’s North American organization, “Capital Safety has long been recognized by our customers for saving lives and preventing injuries.  It’s equally rewarding to now be recognized for the strong safety culture within our own facilities.  I’m very proud of our employees, especially the members of our Employee Health & Safety Committee.  This award goes to them.”  

“Employers like Capital Safety want to protect their employees because it’s the right thing to do,” said Carol Bufton, president of the Minnesota Safety Council.  “It’s also good business – an effective safety program helps organizations reduce costs, increase employee engagement, increase productivity, and stay competitive.”

Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance.  Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with their industry’s national statistics, and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program.
