ANNANDALE, Min. — Malco Products, SBC, was recognized for excellence in workplace safety and health during the Governor’s Safety Awards ceremony at the 85th annual Minnesota Safety & Health Conference.
Malco earned the 2018 Meritorious Achievement Award in Occupational Safety, and is one of 294 employers to be honored through the 2019 awards program coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council.
“We are proud to once again be recognized by the Minnesota Safety Council for our commitment to creating a safe, healthy, and productive workplace for each of our employee-owners,” said Malco President and CEO Mardon Quandt. “By manufacturing innovative, ergonomic tool designs, Malco is also committed to extending that safety culture to the customer.”
“Every day in Minnesota, about 100 workers get injured or ill to the point that they can’t go back to their job the next day,” said Paul Aasen, president of the Minnesota Safety Council. “Congratulations to Malco Products, SBC, for their hard work to make sure their employees are not a part of this statistic.”
Malco is also certified through the Minnesota Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (MNSHARP) for working with management and employees to develop safety and health programs that go beyond basic compliance with applicable OSHA standards for long-term prevention of job-related injuries and illnesses.
