Barr wins multiple safety awards
Barr was recently recognized for excellence in workplace safety and health during the 2022 Minnesota Safety and Health Conference. We were one of 40 employers to receive the 2021 Award of Honor through the awards program coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council. Barr corporate and our Duluth and Hibbing offices all received Awards of Honor.
Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with their industry’s national statistics and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program.

In addition, Barr received a Workplace Safety Merit Award from the North Dakota Safety Council in late April. Pictured in the right photo is Troy Warner (center), who was on hand to receive the award.
