Print Article Contributed by FSM Staff

SAN DIEGO -- The National Safety Council presented the 2019 Robert W. Campbell Award to Parsons Corporation at the NSC Congress and Expo, the annual gathering of safety and health professionals.

Campbell Award winners are an elite group of organizations that have successfully integrated environment, health and safety management with business operations as a cornerstone of corporate excellence.

“Parsons employees work in all types of environments, and their leadership has ensured these workers are safe no matter where they are,” said Lorraine M. Martin, NSC president and CEO. “Its innovative approaches to EHS excellence make it an ideal recipient of our most prestigious safety award. We are proud to honor them, and we appreciate all they do for their employees and the world.”

Campbell Award applicants are evaluated based on their ability to integrate their EHS management system into business practices. Parsons leads in safety, health and environmental performance through implementation of the Environmental, Safety, Health and Risk Program (ESHARP) and the Sustainability Handbook. Together, these resources integrate safety, health, environment and systems into internal operations and interactions with employees, customers and the communities where Parsons conducts business. This allows Parsons to enhance the overall sustainability of the organization from an environmental, sociocultural and economic point of view.

Parsons’s commitment to safety is reflected in its best practices, including the OWN ZERO initiative that frames EHS communications to employees. OWN ZERO breaks down the specifics of the EHS management system to allow employees to focus on actions that are most impactful. Additionally, Parsons prioritizes organizational transparency among its peers, sharing data and best practices openly.

“Despite operating in a competitive world, safety is never a competition,” said Parsons CEO Chuck Harrington. “Throughout our 75-year history, Parsons has fully understood, appreciated and lived the importance of safety and health as a cultural tenet. Safety needs to be top of mind at all times, and it’s incumbent on businesses to collaborate and share best practices so our customers, partners and employees go home safely every day.”

The Campbell Award is underwritten by the Exxon Mobil Corporation and Cummins Inc. It is named for Robert W. Campbell, a safety pioneer and the first president of NSC. Visit CampbellAward.org for more information.
