Bay West Earns Governor’s Safety Award For Fifth Consecutive Year

23 May 2019 – For the fifth year in a row, Bay West LLC. was recognized for excellence in workplace safety and health during the Governor’s Safety Awards ceremony on (May 7/May 8) during the 85th annual Minnesota Safety & Health Conference at Mystic Lake Center in Prior Lake, Minnesota. Bay West was one of 294 employers to be honored through the awards program, coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council.

The company has demonstrated an impressive track record of safety this decade, receiving a Governor's Safety Award in five consecutive years. This run includes earning the Outstanding Achievement Safety Award, the second highest safety award recognition possible, in the last three years.

Bay West Chief Executive Officer, Dave Anderson, in regard to this current run of success, said “Each day we are fortunate to work with amazing people at Bay West, while helping some terrific clients.  What we do is inherently dangerous, but it is our duty to our clients, our employees, and their families, that we send our employees back home safely.”

This constant dedication to safety and project execution has earned Bay West a 2018 Experience Modification Rating (EMR) of 0.67, even with the frequent hazardous work environments our employees face on a daily basis. EMR is a lagging indicator used by insurance companies to assess a company's exposure liability and future risk potential.

“Every day in Minnesota, about 100 workers get injured or ill to the point that they can’t go back to their job the next day,” said Paul Aasen, President of the Minnesota Safety Council. “Congratulations to Bay West for their hard work to make sure their employees are not part of this statistic.”

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.

The Governor’s Safety Awards recognition is part of the 85th annual Minnesota Safety & Health Conference, coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council. The conference is the oldest and one of the largest gatherings of workplace safety and health professionals in the region. 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 injuries.

Bay West LLC is a Minnesota-based environmental consulting firm providing industrial and remediation services to private clients as well as local, county, state, and federal government entities.
