We received the Meritorious Achievement Award in recognition of our superior performance in workplace safety and health at the Minnesota Governor’s Safety Awards luncheon on Thursday, May 7 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Exlar employees, Doug Guse, production manager, and William Aegerter, facilities assistant, accepted the award.
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. Winners are recognized at three levels.

The Meritorious Achievement Award acknowledges 157 winners with incident rates that are better than the industry average for at least three years, and a score between 50 and 74 on a 100-point safety program evaluation scale.
