Washington D.C. (April 14, 2020) – The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) has completed its annual Accident Prevention Contest and is proud to recognize 70 asphalt roofing manufacturer facilities for their workplace safety, specifically low incident rates among workers.

Facilities that entered the 2019 Accident Prevention Contest were judged based on ARMA criteria derived from the standards set by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This information is gathered through quarterly safety data reports from the past calendar year.

“The commitment that ARMA and its members have to providing a safe work environment for all employees is unwavering,” said ARMA’s Executive Vice President Reed Hitchcock. “Each year we are pleased to see so many facilities meeting high standards in plant health and safety.”

All of ARMA’s manufacturer members are invited to participate in the Accident Prevention Contest by submitting data from their entire company, a specific division, or an individual plant or mill in North America. Winners are honored in four different categories, with a “perfect” score meaning that zero safety incidents were recorded.
