A Madisonville clothing manufacturing facility has received a Governor's Safety and Health Award for the second year in a row.
Kentucky Labor Cabinet Deputy Secretary Mike Nemes presented the award to Carhartt's Madisonville Cutting Facility Thursday for 669,980 consecutive hours without lost time injury or illness.
The award is presented for outstanding safety and health performance in the workplace. The required number of hours to qualify is dependent on the number of employees. Carhartt employes 50 associates in Madisonville.
Representative Jim Gooch was in attendance at the ceremony and said the facility is a "model example of Kentucky's commitment to safe and efficient labor."
The company's President and COO Linda Hubbard said, "This kind of care and concern helps perpetuate Carhartt’s best-in-class safety and training culture, and this recognition is a testament to the dedication of our Madisonville associates and the great emphasis they place on upholding safety regulations and guidelines every single day. We could not succeed in business without their support and we are honored to receive the Governor’s Safety and Health Award for the second consecutive year.”
Carhartt also operates an RCV Distribution Center in Hanson, a Supply Chain Operations Center in Irvine and a sewing facility in Edmonton.
