Sponsored by the AFS Safety and Health Committee, these Innovation Awards recognize projects and programs that improve safety, health or ergonomics in foundry operations.

AFS is looking for examples of how the foundry industry is making its plants safer, healthier or more ergonomically friendly places to work. The awards honor innovative practices, programs, and projects throughout the industry. The program communicates these ideas to others in the American foundry industry, and raises the profile and importance of safety and health both inside and outside the industry.
