The Institute for Safety and Health Management, in partnership with Westex, a flame resistant fabric manufacturer known for their uncompromising commitment to safety, administer the prestigious award. The award was presented in conjunction with the Westex Venue at the National Safety Council (NSC) Congress and Expo held in Chicago, Illinois.
