NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG), the makers of Hyster and Yale lift trucks, is a star. The company received the prestigious Carolina Star Safety Award
at an awards ceremony on Tuesday hosted by the North Carolina Department of Labor.
In order to qualify, a company needs to pass an initial assessment to prove that their facilities are a safe, healthy and productive work environment. The following six elements constitute the Carolina Star’s SEE & ACT requirements:
• Everyone’s commitment
• Employee Involvement
• Analyze hazards
• Control risks
As the latest recipient of the esteemed Carolina Star Safety Award, NMHG joins a select group of 135 North Carolina sites.
“NMHG would like to express our gratitude to the North Carolina Department of Labor and Pitt County Chamber of Commerce,” said John Gardiner, general manager Americas Manufacturing, NMHG. “We are incredibly honored and humbled to be named a Carolina Star Safety Award recipient and join the ranks of Kimberly-Clarke, Pfizer, Frito-Lay and Georgia Pacific, to name a few. It has been a wonderful year of safety milestones for our company, and we couldn’t have done it without our dedicated employees.”
In addition to receiving the Carolina Star Safety Award at the ceremony, NMHG was honored with the North Carolina Department of Labor Million-Hour Safety Award and Gold Safety Award for the seventh consecutive year.
Million-Hour Safety Awards are given to firms that accumulate one million employee hours with no case of injury or illness involving days away from work. Last year, NMHG reached three-million hours without a lost time accident in its Greenville, N.C., facility. Gold Safety Awards include cases of days away from work, restricted activity or job transfer.
