Cleveland, OH – The winners of NCCA’s 2021 Safety Award were Mitsubishi Chemical America in Chesapeake, VA, and Steelscape in Kalama, WA. The National Coil Coating Association (NCCA) annually recognizes coater member companies that show exceptional commitment to assuring workplace safety.

The NCCA Safety Committee selected the two winning facilities from 45 plants that were considered for the award. The top plants were identified on the basis of data reported to OSHA. Then, the Safety Committee conducted interviews with the top plants and selected the winners based on the excellence of their safety programs.

“Many facilities demonstrate a strong commitment to safety. However, this year, the Mitsubishi and Steelscape plants stood out above the others, in terms of both safety performance and safety program detail,” said Matt Montgomery, EHS committee chair of NCCA.

This is the first time Mitsubishi is a recipient of this award. The Safety Committee was impressed by some unique features of processes used by Mitsubishi and the ways its safety team has addressed risk at the plant. Steelscape is a perennial finalist, having won the award more than any other plant. The plant has achieved unparalleled long-term safety performance and continues to evolve an already exemplary program. To promote safety in the coil coating industry, winners of the award share their best safety practices with the NCCA membership.
