Safety Awards Application

New! As the Safety Awards Program prepares for the 2024 Safety Awards Banquet Season, please be aware that we are changing the way we will be processing the 2023 Safety Awards applications. 


The Safety Awards application process is transitioning from a hard copy mail-in form to an electronic online form. This will allow the application process to be more cost-effective and time-efficient for everyone involved. This means you will not receive a hard copy in the mail. 


To ensure a smooth transition, we sent an email to our current list of safety award recipients from the past several years on October 31, 2023. This email communication was to verify that the email address and contact information that we have on file for Safety Award applications is still correct. If you did not receive this email and would like to be added to our list, please email


We will be starting the application process in the next couple of months. Those on our email distribution list will receive an email with a Safety Awards link from with detailed instructions on submitting your application online. At that time, you may also go directly to the North Carolina Department of Labor website to submit your application. 


If you have any questions regarding this new process, please contact the Safety Awards Coordinator. Kiley Willard, at or call 919-707-7855.
