AUTOMOTIVE COMPONENTS HOLDINGS RECEIVES

COMMISSIONER’S AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
COMPANY WORKED MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION MAN HOURS WITHOUT A LOST TIME INJURY

 

NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Automotive Components Holdings was chosen to receive the Commissioner’s Award of Excellence for Workplace Safety and Health.

 

The Commissioner’s Award honors Tennessee employers and their employees who together have achieved a required number of hours worked without experiencing a lost workday case and have maintained total injury and illness incidence rates below the national average.  The number of hours required is based on the size of the company.

 

“Since its beginning in October 2005, Automotive Components Holdings has demonstrated strong commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace,” said Commissioner Neeley, who presented the Commissioner’s Award today at the company.  “The evaluation criteria for this award are demanding, and this company has worked conscientiously to meet and exceed the standards the award requires.”

 

Automotive Components Holdings, Nashville Glass Plant, which manufactures automotive glass for Ford Motor Company, employs 550 people at the Nashville site.

 

The facility has worked more than 2.5 million man hours without a lost time injury.  This record extends back to late September 2005.

 

"This tremendous accomplishment dates back to the beginning of ACH,” said Al Ver, CEO and COO, Automotive Components Holdings.  "It’s a remarkable streak that reflects the sharp focus and dedication to safety of every member of the Nashville team.”

 

The Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Safety Awards Program is designed to stimulate interest in accident prevention and to promote safety.  The program recognizes manufacturing and construction firms throughout the state that achieve and maintain a safe and healthful workplace.
