TKDA Earns a Minnesota Safety Council Governor’s Workplace Safety Award

TKDA was recognized for our excellence in workplace safety and health during the 2024 Minnesota Safety and Health Conference with a Diamond Achievement Award! We are one of 244 employers to be honored through the awards program coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council. At TKDA, safety is paramount, ingrained deeply within our values, and reflects an unwavering dedication to team members, communities, and collaborative partners. This commitment comes to life through active investments in tools designed for prevention, education, and accountability.

“TKDA’s investment in our employee owners’ growth and development only has value if their safety and wellness receive equal attention,” said Tom Stoneburner, TKDA’s CEO. “The safety and well being of our staff, clients, communities, and partners is always our first priority, and the Minnesota Safety Council provides immense support in our safety efforts.”

Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Workplace 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 and state statistics and their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program. Winners are recognized at five levels, and we are one of 12 firms to receive a Diamond Achievement Award for our excellence in occupational injury prevention throughout 2023. Diamond Achievement recipients achieved an incidence rate better than the 97th percentile of both the state and national average.

“Keeping the people we work and live with safe is a full-time job,” said Paul Aasen, CEO of the Minnesota Safety Council. “Congratulations to TKDA for investing the time and energy to make work and life safer inside their organization and beyond.”

The Minnesota Safety Council, founded in 1928, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Minnesota by preventing unintentional injuries on the road, at work, at home, and in the community.
