National’s Danville, KY, facility has been recognized by the Kentucky Labor Cabinet as a recipient of the 2017 Governor’s Safety and Health Award. This award provides special recognition for outstanding safety and health performance and encourages the development of programs designed to reduce and even eliminate occupational injuries and illnesses. National received this award for their 2017 performance of 584,951 production hours worked without a lost-time incident by employees, and recently was presented with the certificate during the 2018 Kentucky Safety and Health Conference.
“At National, we are very passionate about our vision of being injury free and receiving the Kentucky’s Governor’s Safety and Health Award is an honor,” said Mike Potter, Danville Plant Manager. “This milestone demonstrates the commitment of our management team and the engagement of our employees to make good safe choices every day. However, it is just a milestone; we will continue our daily journey to be injury free. The real value of the award is knowing that our people worked safely for a half of a million hours!”
