TRANE COMPANY RECEIVES
COMMISSIONER’S AWARD OF EXCELLENCE

COMPANY WORKED MORE THAN 470,000 MAN HOURS WITHOUT A LOST TIME INJURY

NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Trane Company in Nashville, Tennessee was chosen to receive the Commissioner’s Award of Excellence for Workplace Safety.

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.

“The management and employees of Trane Company have demonstrated strong commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace,” said Commissioner Neeley, who presented the Commissioner’s Award. “The evaluation criteria for this award are ambitious, and this company has worked conscientiously to meet and exceed the standards the award requires.”

Trane Nashville employs 90 people and has qualified for the Commissioner’s Award by working more than 470,000 man hours without either a lost time or restricted duty incident.  This injury free record dates back to 2004.

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.
