APGA Safety Contest
The APGA Safety Contest is an annual award given out to APGA public natural gas system members for their dedication to keeping their employees safe every day on every job. Entries for the 2021 APGA Safety Contest closed on May 7, 2020. All APGA public gas system members are eligible to enter this contest.
Contestants shall be divided into the following groups based on the annual number of man-hours worked:
- Group A = 8,000 or less man-hours
- Group B = 8,001 to 18,000 man-hours
- Group C = 18,001 to 38,000 man-hours
- Group D = 38,001 to 70,000 man-hours
- Group E = 70,001 or more man-hours
The winner of each group will be calculated based on total man-hours worked and the number of recordable injury or illness cases from January 1 to December 31 of the 2020 calendar year. This rate is determined by adding all recordable injuries and computing the incidence rate using the following formula: Incidence Rate = Total Recordable Injuries x 200,000 ÷ Man-Hours
If two or more contestants have equal incidence rates, they will each be presented with an award.
