N.C. Department of Labor's Million Hour Safety Awards Program is administered through its Education, Training and Technical Assistance Bureau of the Occupational Safety and Health Division. Million hour safety awards are given to companies which accumulate one million employee hours with no injuries or illnesses involving days away from work. Subsequent awards are given for each additional one million employee hours with no injuries or illnesses. Million hour awards may be presented to the firm at its place of business at any time, or during the local annual safety awards ceremony.


To apply for the million hour award, use this online million hour safety award application which will be electronically submitted.
