NSC announces Networks Innovation Award winner


Itasca, IL — Lockheed Martin is the recipient of the National Safety Council 2022 Networks Innovation Award, which recognizes “fresh, effective approaches and programs that protect employees’ health, safety and environment.”

The Bethesda, MD-based aerospace company created standards to control new risks posed by 21st century high-power lasers. It also developed new operating standards beyond those already established to ensure the safety of its employees, customers and communities.

Tesla earned runner-up recognition for empowering its employees to assist in building a positive safety culture by promoting submissions of improvement ideas. Additionally, NSC honored Georgia-Pacific with a special recognition for its virtual reality training. Another submission from Lockheed Martin – its ergonomic program – also received special recognition.

The organizations were selected based on a blind review that included an evaluation of the significance of the innovation, its potential for deployment across industries, and its overall sustainability and contribution to the field of occupational safety and health.
