The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) announced today that three Texas companies have been recognized with a Lone Star Safety Award for their exemplary workplace health and safety programs and low rates of work-related injuries and illnesses. Among them are the Ocean Spray Cranberries bottling company in Sulphur Springs, the Alamo Structural Steel fabrication and welding plant in Waco, and the Harmon, Inc. curtain wall panel manufacturing facility in Mesquite. Ocean Spray, which employs 135, and Alamo Steel, which employs 85, are first-time recipients of the safety award. Harmon, which employs 99, previously received the safety award in September 2018.

“These companies have strong safety cultures ingrained in their operations to help keep workers healthy and injury free,” said DWC Workplace Safety Director Chris D’Amura. “We’re proud to recognize the outstanding achievements of the management and employees at these three companies and their commitment to being industry leaders in occupational health and safety.”

DWC’s Lone Star Safety Program recognizes Texas employers with outstanding safety programs that can serve as models for other companies. Lone Star Safety Award recipients may be asked to give presentations to industry associations, mentor other organizations, serve on panels for safety and health issues, or participate in the Texas Workers’ Compensation Conference in July.
