NACCO Materials Handling receives Carolina Star Safety Award
The North Carolina Department of Labor and Pitt County Chamber of Commerce awarded NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG), who manufactures Hyster and Yale lift trucks, the Carolina Star Safety Award at the Eastern North Carolina Safety Awards Ceremony on April 5.
To qualify for the award, a company needs to pass an initial assessment to prove that its 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 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, in a press statement. “We are incredibly honored and humbled to be named a Carolina Star Safety Award recipient…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 3 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.
