BALDOR DODGE RELIANCE RECEIVES
WORKPLACE SAFETY AWARD
COMPANY HAS WORKED TWO YEARS WITHOUT ACCIDENT

NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Baldor Dodge Reliance in Rogersville was chosen to receive the Commissioner’s Award 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.

“Baldor Dodge Reliance’s excellent safety record shows the company is strongly committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace,” said Jim Flanagan, Volunteer Protection Program manager for Tennessee OSHA, who presented the Commissioner’s Award of Excellence to Baldor Dodge Reliance today at the company’s facility located at 100 Baldor Drive. “The evaluation criteria for this award are ambitious, and this company has worked hard to meet and exceed the standards the award requires.”

The facility has qualified for the Commissioner’s Award by working more than 907,124 man hours without a lost-time incident. This record dates back to March 2005.

Baldor Dodge Reliance in Rogersville is a ball bearing manufacturing company employing 223 employees.
