At its Annual Meeting of Members on May 2 at Hilton Head Island, S.C., the Forging Industry Association (FIA) presented Safety Awards to forging producers that represent the top-performing facilities in FIA’s 2015 Occupational Injury & Illness Survey. FIA placed all facilities that participated in the survey into groups based on number of employees. This ensured each location would be judged fairly against similarly sized competitors. The facilities in each group with the lowest recordable incident rates were eligible for awards, provided their DART (days away from work, work restrictions and job transfer cases) rates were less than the group average. First-, second- and third-place winners were announced for four groups.
