According to FCA, winners are objectively selected based on key safety metrics such as years the company has had a safety program, safety training, injury/illness rates, recordable incident rates, EMR trends and more.

The four winners in the architectural glass and metal industry were: Boss Glass Co. (Dover, N.J); Eighteen Glass Co. (East Brunswick, N.J.); Graboyes Commercial Window Co. (Philadelphia); and Royal Glass Co. (Santa Clara, Calif).

Five other industry companies finished in the top ten. They were: Architectural Glass & Metal (Clifton Park, N.Y.); Empirehouse (Mounds View, Minn.); Ferguson Neudorf Glass (Beamsville, Ont.); National Glass & Metal Co. (Horsham, Pa.); and Walters & Wolf (Fremont, Calif.).
