Recognizing AICC Members’ Achievements

AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, regularly recognizes member companies for outstanding plant safety through the annual Independent Safe Shop Awards and their perseverance and success with the Member Milestone Program. 

Each year, this recognition is given to member companies who meet the OSHA Recordable Incident Rate and the OSHA Lost Work Days Incident Rate. 

For those recognized in 2020, they had to have a Recordable Incident Rate that was less than 3.2, and for those recognized in 2021, they had to have a Recordable Incident Rate that was less than 2.5. In addition, both years had to have a Lost Work Days Incident Rate = 0 (zero).
