Chanhassen, Minn. (April 26, 2016) – IWCO Direct, a leading provider of direct marketing solutions, has been recognized by the Minnesota Safety Council and the Envelope Manufacturers Association (EMA) for excellence in workplace safety.

Governor’s Safety Award for Meritorious Achievement

The Minnesota Safety Council will recognize IWCO Direct with a Meritorious Achievement Award at the 82nd Annual Governor’s Safety Awards Luncheon on May 5. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with their industry’s national statistics and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program. The Meritorious Achievement Award recognizes companies with incident rates that are better than the industry average for at least three years, and score between 50 and 74 on a 100-point safety program evaluation scale.

EMA Industry Safety Awards

IWCO Direct was also presented with a 2015 Industry Safety Leader Award and a Most Improved Safety Performance Award from the Envelope Manufacturers Association during the EMA 2016 Spring Meeting. The Industry Safety Leader honor recognizes companies with a Lost Time Case Incident Rate of 1.5 or below. These incidence rates are a combination of injuries and illnesses. The Most Improved Safety Performance recognition identifies the company with the most improved OSHA Recordable Rate over the last year for their size category.

“Our employees are steadfast in their commitment to a safe work environment,” said Jim Andersen, CEO of IWCO Direct. “Workplace safety is a priority at IWCO Direct. It ensures not only the well-being of our employees but enhances our ability to meet our customers’ needs most efficiently.”
