NJCU Receives Recognition Award in Annual Governor’s Occupational Safety and Health Awards Program

New Jersey City University has received a Recognition Award in the 90st Annual Governor’s Occupational Safety and Health Awards Program.  This marks the twelfth consecutive year that NJCU has been honored in the annual program. 

Sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, New Jersey State Industrial Safety Committee, and New Jersey State Safety Council, the Program recognizes outstanding performance in the prevention of workplace injuries and illnesses. 

NJCU received a Recognition Award for outstanding achievement in the prevention of occupational injuries during 2017.  Recognition Awards are presented to a facility or company for achieving a lost-time incidence rate of 3.0 or less for a calendar year.  NJCU’s lost-time incidence rate was only 0.9, less than half the minimum qualification.

NJCU’s outstanding performance record is attributed to the institution’s Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Program which consists of Training Programs, Policies and Procedures, Safety Inspections, and an EHS Committee and several sub-committees comprised of management and labor representatives from across the campus.
