Haskell Steel Receives AISC Safety Award for Third Year in a Row

The company's commitment to safety was on display with a perfect performance of no Days Away and Restricted Time injuries in 2022.


For the third year in a row and the 18th overall, Haskell Steel has received the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) Safety Award of Honor.

The award is based on work performed without Days Away and Restricted Time injuries (DART) in 2022. Haskell Steel completed a third consecutive year with no recordable injuries and, thus, a DART of 0.00.

“It's big deal,” said Ryan Hollister, Vice President of Haskell’s Manufacturing Core. “It’s a testament to the dedication and commitment of every member of the team. Safety is not just a priority, its more than that, it’s our culture.”

Working with steel is inherently dangerous. The list of hazards includes moving machinery, falls from heights, falling objects, toxic gas, liquid metal, noise, heat and vibration. Haskell Steel accomplished the award-winning performance because of the dedication of its 50-plus Permanent Craft Employees (PCEs) and manufacturing professionals, Hollister said.

Each team member carries a challenge coin he said is “representative of the culture.”

“It's this idea that, ‘I own safety,’” he said. “Every individual at Haskell Steel owns safety and is accountable to it. We carry that culture universally across the team, and it has real benefit.”

The award comes after a year when Haskell Steel worked a record high 125,000 hours producing structural and miscellaneous steel, for projects across the .U.S and Caribbean ranging from large animal fencing enclosures to aircraft mega-hangers.

Additionally, investments made in equipment early in 2022 allowed the operation to expand its capabilities in miscellaneous metals fabrication, such as stairs, platforms, crossovers and handrails, a scope that was previously co-manufactured, providing clients even greater project certainty.

AISC Safety Awards are given for perfect records (DART=0), excellent records (0<DART≤1), and commendable records (1<DART≤2). Haskell’s was a DART=0 Award in the Fabricator Category.

“The value of this award is that it acknowledges the efforts, large and small, that your company has made to operate in a safe and efficient way.,” said Tom Schlafly, AISC's director of safety.

Haskell Steel’s culture of safety goes hand in hand with that of the larger organization. Haskell has received the Associated Builders and Contractors’ National Safety Pinnacle Award, the organization’s highest safety honor, in two consecutive years and three of the past four.

Haskell’s safety performance is one of many ways in which it ensures the greatest possible risk management on its clients’ projects. Contact our project management team to discuss your facilities needs.
