M.I. METALS RECEIVES
WORKPLACE SAFETY AWARD
COMPANY EARNS SECOND SHARP AWARD

NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that M.I. Metals, Inc., was chosen to receive the SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) award for the second year.

“Two years ago we were pleased to honor M.I. Metals for this same award for an outstanding work record without a single recordable injury,” said Labor & Workforce Deputy Commissioner Bob Henningsen. “It is my pleasure to recognize the company for again meeting the SHARP safety award criteria, reflecting their continued commitment to making workplace safety a top priority.”

The SHARP award, designed for employers with fewer than 250 workers in high-hazard industrial classifications, is one of the state’s highest honors for workplace safety and health. The main incentive for participation in the SHARP award program is the desire by employers to promote a safe and healthy workplace. The program also allows employers to be removed from programmed compliance inspection lists for a period of 12 months.

M.I. Metals was established in 1973 in Smyrna and employs 40 people. The company specializes in aluminum extrusion and paint applications.

M.I. Metals, Inc., has met all 58 elements of an effective safety and health program as provided for in the SHARP criteria.
