DeZURIK will be recognized for excellence in workplace safety and health during the MN/SD Safety & Health Virtual Conference on October 19-20. DeZURIK is one of 262 employers to be honored through the awards program, coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council.

“It is a pleasure to recognize DeZURIK for their award and safety excellence,” said Paul Aasen, president of the Minnesota Safety Council. “Safety is about time and attention and diligence. We thank DeZURIK for working hard to keep their employees safe.”

“Thank you to all DeZURIK employees for their commitment to safety! I’m proud of our progress and grateful for the recognition from the Minnesota Safety Council,” said Bryan Burns, DeZURIK CEO.

“I am excited to receive this award on behalf of DeZURIK and be a part of a great team” said Denise Slipy, Manager of Health and Safety.   

Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with their industry’s national statistics, and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program. Winners are recognized at three levels:

  • Meritorious Achievement (70 winners): Incidence rates that are better than the industry average for at least three years, and a score between 50 and 74 on a 100-point safety program evaluation scale.
  • Outstanding Achievement (138 winners): Continuing improvement and/or a continuing outstanding record with incident rates that are 51%-90% better than the industry average, and a score between 75 and 90 on the safety program evaluation scale.
  • Award of Honor (54 winners): Incidence rates at least 91% better than the industry average, and a score between 91 and 100 on the safety program evaluation scale.

 DeZURIK received an Outstanding Achievement Award.

The Minnesota Safety Council, founded in 1928, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Minnesota by preventing unintentional injuries on the road, at work, at home, and in the community.
