NMS recognized with National Industry Leader Award by the National Safety Council

NMS, Alaska’s 6th largest private employer, was honored by the National Safety Council (NSC) with their prestigious 2009 Industry Leader Award for safety performance within its industry. The award is a component of the Council’s member-exclusive Safety Motivation and Recognition Awards Program. The award benchmarks outstanding safety achievements among member companies based on reported data. The Industry Leader Award recognizes only the top 5 percent of member companies in the country.

NMS Vice President of Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) Craig Clemens, announced receipt of the award to NMS employees at a recent company safety meeting in Anchorage. “This award recognizes NMS for our success in making safety part of our daily lives and our corporate culture, said Clemens, “we are honored to receive the award and will use it to help remind us of the importance of safety in the workplace and our personal lives.” NMS emphasizes personal safety in every work location. NMS’ commitment to and success in providing a safe and healthy environment for their employees, clients and customers was also recognized earlier this year with the National Safety Council’s 2009 Occupational Excellence Achievement Award.
