NACCO Receives Carolina Star Safety Award!
NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG), Greenville, N.C., the maker of Hyster and Yale lift trucks, was awarded the Carolina Star Safety Award at a ceremony on Aug. 2 that was hosted by the North Carolina Department of Labor.
In order to qualify for the award, a company needs to pass an initial assessment to prove its facilities are safe, healthy and productive work environments. NMHG joins a group of 135 North Carolina sites that received the award.
“NMHG would like to express our gratitude to the North Carolina Department of Labor and Pitt County (North Carolina) Chamber of Commerce,” says John Gardiner, general manager Americas Manufacturing, NMHG. “We are incredibly honored and humbled to be named a Carolina Star Safety Award recipient and join the ranks of Kimberly-Clarke, Pfizer, Frito-Lay and Georgia Pacific, to name a few. It has been a wonderful year of safety milestones for our company, and we couldn’t have done it without our dedicated employees.”
In addition to receiving the Carolina Star Safety Award at the ceremony, NMHG was honored with the North Carolina Department of Labor Million-Hour Safety Award and Gold Safety Award for the seventh consecutive year.
Million-Hour Safety Awards are given to firms that accumulate one million employee hours with no case of injury or illness involving days away from work. Last year, NMHG reached three-million hours without a lost time accident in its Greenville, N.C., facility. Gold Safety Awards include cases of days away from work, restricted activity or job transfer.
