St. Luke's Recognized for Workplace Safety
St. Luke’s will be recognized for excellence in workplace safety and health at the Governor’s Safety Awards luncheon on May 5 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. St. Luke’s is one of 309 employers to be honored through the awards program, coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council.
St. Luke’s was recognized for having an incidence rate that is better than the industry average for at least three years, and a score between 50 and 74 on a 100-point safety program evaluation scale. “We work hard to make St. Luke’s safe for all its employees,” said Mike Marturano, St. Luke’s Safety Officer. “Every day, St. Luke’s continues to strive to be a safe workplace environment for employees.”
“Employers like St. Luke’s know that safety isn’t automatic,” said Paul Aasen, president of the Minnesota Safety Council. “It takes attention, dedication and continuous effort to protect their employees.”
The Governor’s Safety Awards luncheon is part of the 82nd Minnesota Safety & Health Conference, coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council. The conference is the oldest and largest gather of workplace safety and health professionals in the region. The Minnesota Safety Council, found in 1928, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Minnesota by preventing unintentional injuries.
