National’s Fordsville, KY, facility has been recertified by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) for excellence in workplace safety. Their Fordsville, KY, facility is one of only thirteen companies that have earned SHARP status within the state of Kentucky.

“At National, we strive for an injury-free working environment for our people,” said Vince Cooke, National’s Director of Safety. “National has always had a deep commitment to the health and safety of our people, and we continue to build on that commitment. From our guiding principles, we know that ‘our people are the company’, and our most valuable asset. During the past 13-year period at our Fordsville location, injuries have been reduced by 85 percent. There are many components of our safety program that must be executed flawlessly to achieve an injury-free environment, but none are more critical than the engagement of every employee.”
