Safety Award Application

North American Die Casting Association is pleased to annually recognize Corporate Members with operations which place a strong emphasis on their employee's safety and well-being.  NADCA’s program is open to all corporate member companies, not just die casting plants.

A copy of the company’s OSHA 300a log is required to be submitted with each application, to be eligible for an award. Companies may be eligible to win in areas of: Perfect Safety Record, Outstanding Safety Record, and in a new category, NADCA Progress Award for Safety Improvements.

Below is the criteria that needs to be met, to qualify for a safety award.
