G4S Technology Company, Adesta, a systems integrator and project management company for communication networks and electronic security systems, today announced that it received the Award of Honor with Distinction from the Greater Omaha Chapter of the National Safety Council. Adesta’s Safety Director, Denny Teymer, accepted the award on behalf of Adesta for eight consecutive years of outstanding occupational safety and health program results and achievements.
The award was presented in May during the Greater Omaha Chapter of the National
Safety Council Annual Awards Luncheon. This took place as part of the Safety and
Health Summit and Tradeshow at the Qwest Center, Omaha. Adesta has received the
National Safety Council’s Award of Honor with Distinction in 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007
and 2006, Gold Award of Honor in 2005, Silver Award of Honor in 2004 and Bronze
Award of Honor in 2003.
The Occupational Safety and Health Awards Recognition Program was established by
the National Safety Council in 1984 to encourage and recognize excellence in
accident prevention and loss control programs. To be considered for an award, a
company must have an incident rate and lost work day case rate the same or better
than the latest available industry average for their Standard Industrial Classification
(SIC) as recorded by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics Estimates of
Occupational Injury and Illness Incidence Rates. All companies considered for award
recognition must have a written injury/illness prevention plan or equivalent.
Bob Sommerfeld, President of Adesta, had this to say. “Safety is a key element of
our business. It is our number one priority at Adesta. We are very stringent when it
comes to our safety policy and beliefs, and this acknowledgement is a testament to
that. We appreciate being honored by the National Safety Council. It means a great
deal to our company.”
