Clark Material Handling Company celebrates safety milestones

Workers at two facilities have worked more than a million hours combined without a lost-time accident.

By ·

Clark, a leader in the material handling industry, was presented with the Kentucky Governor’s Safety & Health Award for both its Lexington and Louisville Kentucky facilities over the past week. The award marks the sixth time for Clark’s Aftermarket Parts Distribution Center in Louisville, Ky., and the first time for Clark’s manufacturing and distribution center in Lexington, Ky.

Clark’s facilities were recognized for working over a million hours combined at both locations, without a lost time accident. The Louisville, KY facility has worked over ten years without a lost time accident.

The Kentucky Labor Cabinet’s Governor’s Health & Safety Award Program is designed to promote safety and health awareness in workplaces throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky, encourage good sound work practices and recognize those companies that have achieved significant reductions in injuries and illnesses in their workplaces.

“Everyone at Clark has safety as their top priority,” said Dennis Lawrence, Clark’s President & CEO. “Receiving the Governor’s Health & Safety award six times for our Louisville facility and for the first time for our Lexington facility is quite an accomplishment. It demonstrates that Clark truly cares for the health and safety of its employees and that our employees are serious about ensuring our safety culture for the future. We are extremely proud of the employees in these facilities who create a culture of safety every day.”
