Aerojet, a GenCorp Inc. company, announced today that it has received the Aerospace Industry Association's (AIA) Worker Safety Improvement Award for the greatest reduction in injuries and illnesses from 2004-2005.
The AIA Environment, Safety, and Health Committee established these awards last year to recognize outstanding member companies and encourage further improvement. It also encourages companies to share health and safety data as well as best practices.
"Aerojet is very proud of this achievement," said Aerojet President Scott Neish. "Providing a safe work environment is the most important obligation a company has to its employees and their families. We will
continue to raise the bar as we build upon this significant accomplishment."
For worker safety improvement, the committee looked at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) method, which includes incident rate, lost workday case rate and lost workday rate, and calculated the average percentage reduction from 2004-2005. A total of 18 AIA member companies submitted health and safety data for consideration.
Aerojet is an aerospace and defense manufacturer principally serving the missile and space propulsion and armaments markets. GenCorp is a manufacturer of aerospace and defense products and systems.
