Quanex Kentucky Facility Awarded for SafetySeptember 17th, 2019 by Editor
Woodcraft Industries, a Quanex Building Products company in Bowling Green, received the Kentucky Governor’s Safety and Health Award last week.
“Safety is a guiding principle for Quanex in every facility we operate,” said human resources generalist for Quanex Nate Dalrymple. “Our employees work hard every day to ensure that everyone goes home after working safely and the Kentucky Governor’s Award is a fulfilling recognition of our total organizational commitment to safe operation.”
The annual-award recognizes Kentucky organizations with outstanding safety and health performance and was designed to encourage the development of programs for reducing and eliminating occupational injuries.
Businesses, like the hardwood and laminated componentry manufacturer Woodcraft, receive the award when they have achieved 500,000 hours or more without a lost-time injury or illness at their workplace.
Woodcraft plant manager Isaiah Harville said, “Safe operation takes everyone’s effort, and it’s a never-ending journey. This award is an important milestone along that journey.”
