BRIDGESTONE METALPHA RECEIVES SAFETY AWARD
COMPANY WORKED SINCE JUNE 2003 WITHOUT INJURY  

NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Bridgestone Metalpha in Clarksville 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.

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.

Commissioner Neeley presented the Commissioner’s Award today at the company, which is located at 570 International Blvd. in Clarksville.

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.
