Company Receives State's Highest Workplace Safety Award
NASHVILLE - For close to two years, LoJac Materials Inc. in Lebanon, Tennessee, has worked without either a lost time or restricted duty injury. That means their employees are safer and their partnership with the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration has paid off. Now they have been awarded the Governor's Award of Excellence for workplace safety and health.
The prestigious award is given to Tennessee employers who meet the 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 or her normal job activities. The number of hours required for the award is based on the size of the company.
Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administrator John Winkler presented the award today to LoJac employees at a ceremony at the Lebanon facility. LoJac employs 46 people and manufactures concrete block. "The evaluation criteria for the Governor's Award of Excellence for Workplace Safety and Health are demanding," said Winkler. "Achieving the required level of safety shows LoJac management and employees are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace."
