ULTRA Scientific, Inc. was recognized as a 2013 Industry Leader by the National Safety Council. This award is a component of the Council's member-exclusive Safety Motivation and Recognition Awards Program and benchmarks outstanding safety achievements among member companies based on NAICS code, lowest total incidence rate, and employee work hours.

“At ULTRA Scientific, our employees take pride in maintaining a safe work environment,” stated William J. Leary, Vice President, Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs. The commitment to work place safety extends through facility updates, process improvements and training programs. In 2012, ten employees were certified by the American Red Cross in CPR, AED and First Aid.
