Bishop Lifting Products Wins Safety Award

July 2011, Vol. 238 No. 7

Bishop Lifting Products, Inc. was the recipient of the Crane & Rigging Support – Silver award in Houston Business Roundtable’s Safety Excellence competition.

Since 1988, the Roundtable has recognized greater Houston-area industrial contractors for outstanding safety performance. The award process is a joint effort to improve onsite safety, eliminate accidents, and reduce injuries to employees.

After being nominated by BP in the category of Crane & Rigging Support, forms were submitted including the OSHA-required safety data for fatalities, lost workday cases, recordable injuries and illnesses, copies of safety policies and procedures and documentation of safety best practices.

Following a review process, 33 companies were chosen to receive field audits to assess onsite safety programs. Topics under review for the field audit included accident prevention plans, safety training and education, emergency evacuation plan, substance abuse control programs, and driver safety training. The audit team interviewed shop employees to ensure “what was written is being implemented” for all safety procedures.
