The National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association (NRC) recognizes their members who have strong workplace safety programs. These safety awards are given to companies who demonstrate a commitment to safety and understands the importance of providing a safe work environment.

  • Workers’ Compensation Experience Rating

Based on the score a company receives, they will fall in one of four award categories. A score of 60% - 69% receives Bronze, 70% - 79% receives Silver, and 80% - 99% receives Gold.
