The Excellence in Corporate Health Achievement Award

Recognizing Excellence in Health and Safety

ACOEM established the Excellence in Corporate Health Achievement Award (eCHAA) in 1996 to recognize organizations in North America that have demonstrated outstanding achievement in leadership and management in assuring employee health, safety and a healthy environment.

The Award is intended to bring national and international attention to the importance of worker health, safety, and environmental management, and to provide model organizations with visibility and validation of their efforts.

Measurable Results and Continuous Improvement

The eCHAA reinforces the importance of measurable results and continuous improvement and provides a forum in which participating organizations can exchange ideas and best practices on creating healthy and productive working environments.

Participating organizations submit a comprehensive application about their program and undergo a rigorous review by an expert panel to assess three dimensions:

  • Social
  • Economic 
  • Environmental
