Kentucky Labor Cabinet honors more than 40 Kentucky companies at safety conference

FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 14, 2012) – Kentucky Labor Cabinet officials have recognized more than 40 companies that have taken the extra steps necessary to guarantee the health and safety of employees.

The companies were honored during the Governor’s Safety and Health Conference and Exposition at Louisville’s Galt House East.  The annual conference brings together nearly 600 professionals across the state to participate in safety training courses.

“These businesses are examples of what can be accomplished when you put the safety and health of employees first,” Gov. Steve Beshear said. “Successful companies focus on continuous improvement in safety and build an atmosphere or culture where all employees practice and promote safety in everything they do.”

The Governor’s Safety and Health Award provides special recognition for outstanding safety and health performance and encourages the development of programs designed to reduce and even eliminate occupational injuries and illnesses. The award is given to employers and their employees who together have achieved the required number of hours worked without experiencing a lost-time injury or illness.
