Caseyville-based Focal Pointe Outdoor Solutions Inc. was recently awarded an Overall Safety Achievement Award from the National Association of Landscape Professionals.
The award, part of NALP’s annual Safety Recognition Awards Program honors those companies with thorough, high-performing safety programs that create and maintain safe work environments in the lawn and landscape industry. It is designed to reward lawn and landscape companies that consistently demonstrate their commitment to safety.
Focal Pointe was evaluated on the number of accidents, number of days that employees were away from work, and number of employee injuries and illnesses. A checklist was also used to rate the company’s complete safety program.
“‘We put people first’ is our leading Core Value and safety is a big part of that,” said Focal Pointe Founder and President John Munie. “We’re very proud of our safety record; it confirms that our ongoing training programs are working to protect our teams and communities. Safe work environments show our employees and clients that we care.”
