FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 5, 2012) – The Kentucky Labor Cabinet Monday honored the management and employees of Salt River Electric’s warehouse in Bardstown with a Governor’s Safety and Health Award.
The employees have worked 611,823 hours without an accident or losing time because of an occupational illness.
Labor Cabinet Secretary Mark Brown said safety-minded employees get the job done. “Creating a culture of a safe work environment and seeking the best methods of worker safety and health are important tasks,” said Brown. “We are pleased that Salt River Electric shares the vision and understands the value of a safe and healthy workforce.”
