WOLVERINE TUBE RECEIVES GOVERNOR’S AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
COMPANY WORKED MORE THAN 270,000 MAN HOURS WITHOUT INJURY

NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Wolverine Tube Inc. in Ardmore, Tennessee, was chosen to receive the Governor’s Award of Excellence for Workplace Safety and Health.

The Governor’s Award honors Tennessee employers and employees who meet a required number of hours during a calendar year without workplace injuries serious enough to cause an employee to miss a day of work or restrict his normal job activities. The number of hours required is based on the size of the company.

Wolverine Tube, which has 85 employees, manufactures copper tubing and heat exchangers. The facility has worked more than 270,000 man hours since January 1, 2004, with a lost-time or restricted duty incident.

Department of Labor & Workforce Development Deputy Commissioner Bob Henningsen today presented the Governor’s Award to Wolverine Tube at the facility located at 30500 Railroad Street in Ardmore.

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.

To obtain an application or additional information on the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health (TOSHA) Safety Awards Program, contact the safety grant manager in Nashville at (800) 325-9901 or (615) 741-5281.
