Ridgewood NJ,  Valley Health System has earned the 2017 Theodore Roosevelt Workers’ Compensation and Disability Management Award for their efforts to promote a safe work environment. The award was given by Risk & Insurance® magazine.

Valley was one of only four national winners, which included Delta Air Lines, Massachusetts Port Authority and Rochester Regional Health. Companies in all industries and of nearly all sizes were allowed to apply for the award.

Award recipients were selected based on how their companies have improved their employee safety through employee engagement and advocacy, performance, sustainability, innovation and teamwork. Two initiatives that made Valley’s workers’ compensation program standout among all other companies included the Code Atlas crisis management team and ALICE protocols (active shooter response training), as well as decreasing work-related injuries.

“Valley is proud to be a recipient of the 2017 Theodore Roosevelt Workers’ Compensation and Disability Management Award,” said Barbara Schultz, Director, Employee Health & Wellness. “Valley employees are truly embracing a culture of workplace safety by following guidelines outlined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. They have taken it to heart to take care of themselves and each other.”
