COMPLETING THE APPLICATION
The ICI application process consists of three parts:
- Interactive application form which is filled in and submitted electronically once you have provided all of the requested information. Each section of the application clearly states what is required for that section.
- The application form will also request some independent documentation. Please save these documents as a PDF file to upload with the application.
- Once you complete the application form, ICI will send you links to electronic supervisor and onsite worker surveys. You will need to provide those links via text or email to your supervisors and onsite workers so they can take the one/two-minute survey.
NOTE: Please contact ICI at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (317) 634-7547 if your company is unable to participate electronically.
Applications are submitted electronically and must be received by June 29, 2018. At least the minimum number of all supervisor and onsite worker surveys must be submitted by the June 29 deadline (refer to application for minimum number needed).
To ensure fairness in the judging process, ICI will remove all identifying information, such as company name and address, from the applications and supporting documentation before providing information to ICI’s Safety Program Awards Selection Committee.

Please provide “yes” or “no” answers to three questions, adding explanations and/or comments as appropriate.

SAFETY PROGRAM COMPONENTS

TARGETED QUESTIONS – SHORT ANSWER
Please provide brief answers to the two questions. These short answers provide additional insight into a contractors safety efforts that safety numbers may not show; so your written answers to these questions will HELP Judges to better understand a contractor’s safety efforts and programs. Although ICI will remove all identifying information, please refrain from using the company name and/or company-specific acronyms in this section.)
ICI uses electronic surveys to make it easier for companies to distribute and request anonymous feedback from employees about the company’s safety program. Contractors without the capabilities of doing the surveys electronically should call the ICI office at (317) 634-7547 for paper surveys and instructions.
Completed applications will be automatically sent to ICI via the interactive application form. Survey forms should be submitted by June 29, 2018.
If you have any questions during the application process, contact the ICI office at (317) 634-7547 or email@example.com.
