Cortec® Corporation, White Bear Lake Headquarters, has been honored to earn the Governor’s Safety Award for the third year in a row!

to the level of “Outstanding Achievement” for 2020. Cortec
® was one of only 221 Minnesota employers recognized for their excellence in workplace safety and health during the 2021 Virtual Minnesota Safety and Health Conference, May 4th-5th.

“In a year that has challenged all of us in ways we never imagined, we are very pleased to recognize Cortec® Corporation for their award,” said Paul Aasen, president of the Minnesota Safety Council, the organization that coordinates the awards program. “Safety demands extraordinary attention in a normal year, double that attention this past year. Thank you Cortec® for keeping your employees safe.”

Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with their industry’s national statistics, and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program. The Outstanding Achievement Award that Cortec® received was based on continuing improvement and/or a continuing outstanding record with incident rates that were 51%-90% better than the industry average, and a score between 75 and 90 on the safety program evaluation scale.
