The award, part of PLANET’s annual Safety Recognition Awards Program, honors those companies with thorough, high-performing safety programs that create and maintain safe work environments in the green industry. It is designed to reward green industry companies that consistently demonstrate their commitment to safety.
DeSantis Landscapes was evaluated on number of accidents, number of days that employees were away from work, and number of employee injuries and illnesses. In addition, a checklist was used to rate the company’s complete safety program.
“One of the visions that I have for DeSantis Landscapes”, says Dean DeSantis, President of DeSantis Landscapes, “is to be seen as one of the most professional landscape service providers in our service area. To me, one of the ways that we achieve this is to run a safe operation. I am extremely proud to receive this award and most of all for the dedicated staff that have helped to create a workplace that values the health and well-being of all of our co-workers. This recognition of our good safety record will put DeSantis Landscapes head and shoulders above the competition”
