North Carolina Department of Labor Is Now Accepting Safety Award
Raleigh, NC (CompNewsNetwork) - The N.C.
Department of Labor is now accepting applications from businesses in North Carolina for its
2007 Annual Safety Awards and Million-Hour Safety Awards. For more information visit
lt/safaward.htm. Both awards recognize companies for maintaining excellent worker
safety and health programs and showing a commitment to employees during 2007.
The N.C. Department of Labor safety awards program is open to any private company or
public entity with a site in North Carolina. Those that qualify for an award are recognized
at 30 banquets across the state featuring N.C. Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry. Banquets
are co-sponsored by the local chambers of commerce, and members of the local news media are
invited to attend.
Safety awards recognize companies with no work-related fatalities at the site and an
incidence rate at least 50 percent below the industry average. Million-hour awards
recognize companies for working 1 million man-hours, or multiples thereof, without an
injury or illness requiring days away from work.
An organization may apply for one safety award for the entire organization, or the
applications may be submitted for a division/department within the organization. If an
organization chooses to apply by division/department, it must have at least 10 full-time
employees in that division.
