Ecolab Textile Care, St. Paul, MN, recently was recognized for excellence in workplace safety and health during the 2021 Virtual Minnesota Safety and Health Conference, according to a news release.

“In a year that has challenged all of us in ways we never imagined, we are very pleased to recognize the Textile Care Division of Ecolab for their award,” said Paul Aasen, president of the Minnesota Safety Council. “Safety demands extraordinary attention in a normal year, double that attention this past year. Thank you, Ecolab Textile Care, for keeping your employees safe.”

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. Ecolab Textile Care received the Meritorious Achievement Award at the May 4-5 meeting.

The Minnesota Safety Council, founded in 1928, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Minnesota by preventing unintentional injuries on the road, at work, at home and in the community.
