The National Safety Council presented the 2019 Robert W. Campbell Award to the Parsons Corporation on Monday at the NSC Congress & Expo, the world's largest annual gathering of safety and health professionals.
"Despite operating in a competitive world, safety is never a competition," said Chuck Harrington, Parsons CEO. "Throughout our 75-year history, Parsons has fully understood, appreciated and lived the importance of safety and health as a cultural tenet. Safety needs to be top of mind at all times, and it's incumbent on businesses to collaborate and share best practices so our customers, partners and employees go home safely every day."
Campbell Award applicants are evaluated based on their ability to integrate their EHS management system into business practices. Campbell Award winners are an elite group of organizations that have successfully integrated environmental, health and safety (EHS) management with business operations as a cornerstone of corporate excellence.
Parsons leads in safety, health and environmental performance through the implementation of Environmental, Safety, Health, and Risk Program (ESHARP) and the Sustainability Handbook.
Parsons's commitment to safety is reflected in its best practices, including the OWN ZERO initiative that frames EHS communications to employees. OWN ZERO breaks down the specifics of the EHS management system to allow employees to focus on actions that are most impactful. Additionally, Parsons prioritizes organizational transparency among its peers, sharing data and best practices openly.
