Clark Material Handling Company celebrates safety milestone
Clark Material Handling Company was presented the Kentucky Governor's Safety & Health Award for the fifth year in a row at a ceremony held at Clark's Aftermarket Parts Distribution Center in Louisville, Ky. on August 18, 2011. Clark's Louisville facility was recognized for working over 579,000 hours without a lost time accident. These accident-free hours have been logged since November 2002 - nearly nine years of no lost time!
The Kentucky Labor Cabinet's Governor's Health & Safety Award Program is designed to promote safety and health awareness in workplaces throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky, encourage good sound work practices and recognize those companies that have achieved significant reductions in injuries and illnesses in their workplaces.
"Everyone at Clark has safety as their top priority," said Dennis Lawrence, Clark's President & CEO. "Going nearly nine years without a lost time accident is quite an accomplishment that demonstrates that Clark truly cares for the health and
safety of its employees. We are extremely proud of the employees in this facility who create a culture of safety every day. And as a result, we see lower employee turnover, higher morale, reduced absenteeism, improved productivity and better quality trucks and parts."
