EATON INOAC RECEIVES SECOND VOLUNTEER STAR AWARD
TOTAL CASE INCIDENCE RATE 35 PERCENT BELOW INDUSTRY AVERAGE

NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Eaton Inoac in Livingston, Tennessee, was chosen to receive the Volunteer STAR (Safety Through Accountability and Recognition) award.

The Volunteer STAR award is the state’s highest honor for workplace safety and health and a nationally recognized program. The main object for participation in the STAR program is the improvement of a company’s safety and health program, which helps reduce accidents and injuries. The program also allows employers to be removed from programmed compliance inspection lists for a period of three years.

A certificate of recognition is awarded to the STAR recipient, as is a flag that can be flown at the site. The company is also permitted to use the Volunteer STAR logo on its correspondence and company documents.

Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development Deputy Commissioner Bob Henningsen today presented the STAR award to Eaton Inoac at the facility, located at 132 Industrial Park Circle in Livingston. The company also received the STAR award in 2001.

For more information on the Volunteer STAR award program, contact Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Consultative Services office at (800) 325-9901 or Adam Schultz at Eaton Inoac at (931) 823-7381.
