NSCThe National Safety Council is inviting organizations from around the globe to apply for the highest honor in environmental, health and safety – the 2013 Robert W. Campbell Award. Presented annually, the Campbell Award is given to an organization that integrates EHS management into the very core of its business operations. Companies that demonstrate EHS and business excellence are eligible to share their approach by applying for this international honor.

“Campbell Award winners demonstrate that successfully integrating EHS into business operations results in sustained operational excellence,” said Gary Rosenblum, senior director of the Campbell Institute at NSC. “Through this award, the Council is pleased to showcase successful business models from organizations that uphold EHS as a key business value, and excel in both EHS and business performance.”

Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 award. Organizations can take a 10-question quiz at campbellaward.org/ready to determine whether they are ready to apply for the Campbell Award and where they are on their Journey. More information can be found at campbellaward.org along with application criteria. Final submittals must be postmarked by May 16, 2014.

Applicants undergo a rigorous review process conducted by an international panel of experts in academia, government, labor and management, who provide each applicant with feedback. Simply applying for the award provides applicants with valuable insight to refine continuous improvement efforts.

The Campbell Award is underwritten by the Exxon Mobil Corporation and named for Robert W. Campbell, a safety pioneer and the first president of the National Safety Council. Visit campbellaward.org for more information.
