Lorain County Safety Council Recognizes KS Associates for No Lost-Time Injuries in 2006

Elyria, OH — The Lorain County Chamber of Commerce Safety Council is one of more than 50 Ohio Safety Councils dedicated to increasing safety awareness through training and educational programs. Each year, the Council conducts a Safety Awards Program to recognize companies that have developed and maintained safe workplaces for their employees.

This year, KS Associates received “The 100% Award,” given to companies that work the entire year without a lost-time injury. A lost-time injury is a work-related injury/illness where the affected person is unable to complete the next shift.

According to Lynn S. Miggins, P.E., President of KS Associates, “This award demonstrates our commitment to keeping our employees safe, happy and healthy. By the virtue of the work we do, our surveyors and engineers may be required to work in potentially hazardous environments — in busy intersections, in underground sewer systems, on runways near moving aircraft and in other challenging conditions. We are continually looking for new ways to identify and avert circumstances that could compromise the health and safety of our workers and the public.”
