The Hazard Control Recognition Award is based on implemented hazard controls within IISC Member Organizations. A Hazard Control is a specific, identifiable change implemented to reduce or eliminate an individual’s exposure to a hazard in the workplace. – Engineering control, redesign, guarding – Work practice changes that eliminate or reduce the risk to a hazard – Improvements to the personal protective equipment used by workers – Changes for previously uncontrolled environmental risk – Training on its own for workers will not qualify as a hazard control. Training in conjunction with controlling a hazard can qualify, as long as there is documentation of the hazard prior to the training, along with the controls put in place to eliminate the hazard.
In addition to receiving the Hazard Control Recognition Award, five (5) member organization applicants will receive the President’s Award for their outstanding contributions with controlling hazards. The IISC Board of Directors President, President-Elect, and Past President will select the five (5) President’s Award recipients.
Each member organization may submit as few as one (1) and up to five (5) hazard control projects for consideration by the awards committee. – Organizations meeting the minimum requirement will earn an award. – Five (5) organizations judged to have outstanding controls will earn the “President’s Award”, in addition to the Hazard Control Recognition Award.

Hazard Control Recognition Safety Award Program Example Slides Follow
On the rare occasions we need to access the roof at Logan’s Soap & Safety, we wanted to ensure the ladder would not be blown down by the wind.
Applied Safe Lifting Here at Logan’s Soap & Safety, we are a close knit family and we often eat lunch together on a picnic table outside our offices. Often two of us would move this table around to minimize wind and sun/shade. This has often lead to much grunting and straining. After discussing proper lifting techniques and back injuries during a safety meeting, Joe, one of our employees noticed that it would be better lifting technique if we always had four people lift and share the load. Now we share the load as well as our lunch!
Hazardous Material Spill Response Teams Before: For the past several years, Logan’s Soap & Safety had one full Hazardous Material Spill Response Team, but they were all on first shift. We have been expanding our Second and Third shift operations. After: Recently, we were able to train enough employees to have full HazMat response on all three shifts, and several back-ups. We are now equipped to handle a spill within the facility during all shifts.
