PPSA is excited to annually honor deserving safety professionals, executives, and teams.
For 2019, we've made an important change in the time of our awards ceremony which will be held as a luncheon immediately following the conclusion of the final conference session. This change from the traditional evening banquet will allow for more people to join us in honoring our attendees, celebrate their achievements, and continue the discussion of safety advancements in the pulp and paper industry.
We hope you will help us honor an outstanding safety professional by submitting a nomination for one of our awards and registering for the 76th Annual Health and Safety Conference today!
This prestigious award is given each year to honor a pulp & paper industry executive that has made a significant contribution to the safety & health programs within their areas of direct responsibility and has a demonstrable record of support for the Pulp & Paper Safety Association.
To nominate an executive for this award, please review the nomination procedure, complete this form and submit along with your accompanying information via email or regular mail.
