EATON AEROQUIP RECEIVES GOVERNOR’S AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
EATON WORKED SINCE MAY 2003 WITHOUT INJURY

NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Eaton Aeroquip in Gainesboro 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.

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.

John Winkler, administrator of the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA), presented the Governor’s Award to Eaton Aeroquip today at the plant, located at 1107 North Grundy Quarles Highway in Gainesboro.

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