HUBER ENGINEERED WOODS, LLC, RECEIVES GOVERNOR’S SAFETY AWARD
SAFETY RECORD DATES BACK TO FEBRUARY 2006

NASHVILLE – Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Huber Engineered Woods, LLC in Spring City was chosen to receive the Governor’s Award of Excellence for Workplace Safety.

“Huber Engineered Woods has an excellent safety record that shows the company’s dedication to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace,” said Bob Henningsen, Deputy Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Labor, who presented the Governor’s Award of Excellence to the company today at the company’s facility located at 1261 Dixie Lee Highway. “This company has worked extremely hard to meet and exceed the standards this award requires.”

 

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 normal job activities. The number of hours required is based on the size of the company.

 

Huber Engineered Woods, LLC is a manufacturer of engineered structural wood panels employing 151 people in Spring City. The site earned membership into the state’s prestigious Volunteer STAR program in 2006. The facility has operated more than 500,000 man hours without a lost time or restricted duty incident. This injury-free record dates back to February 2006.

 

“The reason we are receiving this award is because of the contributions of every single employee,” said Mike Wright, Whites Creek Senior Safety Manager, HEW Sector VPP Coordinator, “I would like to thank all of our employees for their hard work and dedication in maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. Without them this would not be possible.”
