THE COMPANY WORKED SINCE OCTOBER 2, 2003, WITHOUT INJURY

NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Cumberland Lumber and Manufacturing Company in McMinnville, 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. Cumberland Lumber and Manufacturing Company has worked since October 2, 2003, without a lost time or restricted duty injury.

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 today presented the Governor’s Award to Ray Spivey Jr., president of Cumberland Lumber and Manufacturing Company, at the 28 th annual Tennessee Safety and Health Congress and Exposition held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville.
