The National Insulation Association (NIA) announced the 2023 Safety Excellence Award winners in conjunction with its 68th Annual Convention, which took place in Naples, Florida, April 17–19, 2024.

NIA’s Safety Excellence Award is the only national award for outstanding safety performance in the mechanical insulation industry.

NIA’s Safety Excellence Award program honors four levels of excellence: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze for Associates (Manufacturers), Contractors, Distributors/Fabricators, and Metal Building Laminators.

NIA’s Executive Vice President/CEO Michele M. Jones said, “Congratulations to these 44 companies that make safety a top priority every day and strive to improve their safety program each year. Of our 44 total winners, we are very proud to have 34 Platinum winners, 8 Gold winners, and 2 Bronze winners. We are seeing an increase in Platinum winners each year, which demonstrates not only the commitment of all of these companies but also the value this program is providing.
