Good Neighbor Award

The Kentucky Crushed Stone Association implemented the Good Neighbor Award in 2000 to recognize aggregate producers and associates whose community involvement and support activities enhanced the public’s perception of the aggregates industry. The Kentucky Crushed Stone Association firmly believes that an active community relations program is the best way for an aggregate producer or affiliated company within the industry to demonstrate clearly that a company can be and, indeed is, an asset in any community. The ultimate goal of the Good Neighbor Award program is improvement of the public’s perception of both local crushed stone, sand and gravel operations and those that support the aggregates industry by generating positive media exposure.

Safety Milestone Awards

The KCSA Safety Contest Awards are based on MSHA reportable injuries not lost-time injuries. We also give special awards to companies who have gone several years without a lost-time injury (Safety Milestone Award).  Such outstanding safety records deserve to be recognized since they demonstrate a company's real commitment to the safety of its employees. Those companies who have won Milestone Awards in the past may enter again each year as they may have moved up to the next category. Click here to view the Safety Milestone Awards.
