Electronic Systems Inc. (ESI) Receives Governor’s Workplace Safety Award
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Electronic Systems, Inc. was recognized for superior performance in workplace safety and health at the Governor’s Workplace Safety Awards luncheon on December 8th, 2021, at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. At the luncheon, ESI accepted an award for Meritorious Achievement on behalf of its associates.
A safe work environment is about more than just preventing injuries or the spread of disease, it is about making employee well-being a priority. A safe workplace is one where employees feel secure and enjoy a safe space, company values, and a positive co-working environment that encourages respect for everyone.
“This award is a direct reflection of ESI’s continued commitment to workplace safety made possible by our associates through the efforts they put in each day to ensure a safe work environment for all,” stated Brian Carstensen, Manufacturing Manager.
Sponsored by the South Dakota Safety Council, the Governor’s Workplace Safety Award is given to companies in the State of South Dakota based upon specific criteria for DART rate (Days Away Restricted Transferred), Incidence rate, and a comprehensive Safety Program Evaluation Scorecard. The scorecard is an important piece of the Governors Safety Awards Program, but it was also designed to be a helpful guide for those working to strengthen their safety programs. Companies whose incidence rates are better than the industry average for at least three years, and who score between 50 and 74 on a 100-point safety program evaluation scale are recognized for Meritorious Achievement.
The Governor’s Safety Awards luncheon was part of the 29th annual South Dakota Safety & Health Conference, coordinated by the South Dakota Safety Council. The conference is the largest gathering of workplace safety and health professionals in the region. The South Dakota Safety Council, founded in 1949, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in South Dakota by preventing unintentional injuries (“accidents”).
