Is there someone on your staff going above and beyond to build a safe culture for your company?
Applications for the 2023 J. J. Keller Safety Professional of the Year (SPOTY) Award are now open. The prestigious North American awards highlight excellence in building a culture and vision for safety.
Environmental health and safety professionals can apply for the SPOTY Awards directly, or be nominated by someone else.
The winning safety professionals will be chosen by a panel from J. J. Keller’s staff of 75+ safety consultants and experts. They are acknowledged industry leaders with a combined 500+ years of experience. The winners will be announced in September.
“The SPOTY Awards differ from many other company-wide awards in the industry because they focus on the personal commitment and influence of the safety professionals who are on the ground doing the hard work of keeping people safe every day,” said Rustin Keller, president and CEO of J. J. Keller.
The first-place J. J. Keller SPOTY Award winner will receive a prize package totaling more than $20,000 in value. It includes:
- $2,500 to be donated by J. J. Keller to the winner’s nonprofit 501(c)3 organization of choice.
- A free one-year subscription to the J. J. Keller® SAFETY MANAGEMENT SUITE for the winner and their staff (up to 10 users.)
- $1,200 in free online training from J. J. Keller.
- $200 toward J. J. Keller® SAFEGEARTM PPE.
- A commemorative plaque
The winner and their company will also be featured in a webcast by J. J. Keller in October 2023.
Second place receives a $500 donation to the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of their choice, a free one-year subscription to the J. J. Keller® SAFETY MANAGEMENT SUITE, $250 toward J. J. Keller® SAFEGEARTM PPE and a commemorative plaque.
Third place receives a $100 donation to the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of their choice, a free one-year subscription to the J. J. Keller® SAFETY MANAGEMENT SUITE, $200 toward J. J. Keller® SAFEGEARTM PPE and a commemorative plaque.
“Safety is one of the most important things a company can provide for employees,” said Keller. “We want to honor safety professionals who create a safety culture every day.”
