NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG) has received the Carolina Star Safety Award. 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.
In addition to receiving the Carolina Star Safety Award, 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, North Carolina, facility. Gold Safety Awards include cases of days away from work, restricted activity or job transfer.
