DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Allegion plc (NYSE: ALLE), a leading global provider of security products and solutions, has been honored as the winner of the National Safety Council’s prestigious 2021 Robert W. Campbell Award. The National Safety Council (NSC) is America’s leading nonprofit safety advocate.
Allegion was formally honored on Monday, Oct. 11, during the opening session of the 2021 NSC Safety Congress & Expo in Orlando, Florida. Campbell Award winners are an elite group of organizations successfully integrating environment, health and safety management with business operations as a cornerstone of success.
“Allegion employees work to meticulously and intentionally uphold the company’s ‘be safe, be healthy’ value, with the goal of positively impacting workplace safety and engagement, the environment, customers and local communities. As an organization that embodies ‘being safe,’ their mission couldn’t resonate more,” said Lorraine Martin, NSC president and CEO. “We are proud to honor Allegion with this award and look forward to seeing how the company will continue to prioritize safety and make a positive impact on the world around us.”
Allegion designed and implemented the “Allegion Safety Initiative,” a peer-to-peer program promoting safety both at home and at work and has driven a significant reduction in workplace injuries since becoming a standalone company in 2013. Allegion also developed a quantitative, risk-focused evaluation tool, which provided a framework for safety improvements, significantly reduced risk and increased employee engagement.
“Allegion is both honored and humbled to have been selected as the winner of the 2021 Robert W. Campbell Award by the National Safety Council,” said Dave Petratis, chairman, president and CEO of Allegion. “At Allegion, safety is inherent to both what we do and to who we are. We pride ourselves on having one of the safest workforces in the world – but also in making positive impacts on the environment and the health of the communities around us. We hope other companies, big and small, also commit to the Campbell Award’s mission by effectively advancing business vitality through embracing the value of environmental, health and safety management.”
