Employees worked more than 725,000 hours without a lost-time incident.

By ·

Deputy Secretary Rocky Comito of the Kentucky Labor Cabinet has presented the Governor’s Safety and Health Award to the employees of Clark Material Handling in Louisville.

The honor recognizes the employees for working more than 725,715 hours without a lost-time accident or illness. An establishment may qualify for the award if its employees together achieve a required number of hours worked without experiencing a lost-time injury or illness. The required number of hours is dependent upon the number of employees. In the case of Clark Material Handling, the requirement is 250,000.

Clark is a global manufacturer of powered industrial trucks with more than 550 locations worldwide and dealerships in 80 countries. The Louisville facility, which employs more than 30 people, is a state-of-the-art parts distribution warehouse that services international and domestic dealerships. Clark also has a facility in Lexington, which includes manufacturing, engineering, sales, marketing and corporate offices.

The Governor’s Safety and Health Award program is part of Governor Steve Beshear’s efforts to improve the health of all Kentuckians. The Governor launched kyhealthnow last year as an aggressive and wide-ranging initiative to reduce incidents and deaths from Kentucky’s dismal health rankings and habits. It builds on Kentucky’s successful implementation of health care reform and uses multiple strategies over the next several years to improve the state’s collective health.

Every establishment within the geographical boundaries of Kentucky is eligible, even if the establishment won the award the previous year. Eligibility is limited to one award during a 12-month period of time.
