Advanced Technology Services, Inc. (ATS) announces its chief executive officer, Jeff Owens, was named to the prestigious 2021 list of “CEOs Who ‘Get It'” by the National Safety Council, along with seven other leaders nationwide. 

The annual award recognizes executive leaders who go above and beyond to protect employees both on and off the job through four key components: risk reduction, performance measurement, safety management solutions, and leadership and employee engagement. 

Owens began his career with ATS in 1988, rising through the ranks over the next three decades to his current role as CEO. He committed himself to embedding safety in the company’s overall philosophy and core values by implementing a Live Safety/Beyond Zero culture, Safety Dashboard, and programs such as the President’s Award for Safety Excellence. That commitment is reflected in ATS’s safety performance as measured by the OSHA Recordable Incident Rate (RIR) and OSHA Lost Time Rate (LTR).

The National Safety Council, America’s leading nonprofit safety advocate for over 100 years, is a mission-based organization that works to eliminate the leading causes of preventable death and injury in and beyond the workplace.
