Employees worked more than 350,000 hours without an incident
NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (June 17, 2015) — Deputy Secretary Rocky Comito of the Kentucky Labor Cabinet today joined company officials from Sargent and Greenleaf in Nicholasville to recognize employees for earning the Governor’s Safety and Health Award. The mechanical and electronic lock manufacturing facility has not had a lost-time injury or illness in more than 350,000 work hours.
Established in New York in 1857, Sargent and Greenleaf is a world leader in medium and high security locks and locking systems for safes and vaults. Since 1974, the company has been headquartered in Nicholasville—where it has 120 employees, 100,000-s.f. of manufacturing space and 22,000-s.f. of offices. Now a subsidiary of STANLEY Security Solutions, the company also serves European and other international customers from a facility in Switzerland.
The Nicholasville facility’s last lost-time injury happened in February 2014, when a worker slipped on a patch of ice in the parking lot. The injury was not serious and the worker only lost one day of work.
