NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG), Cleveland, Ohio, received the prestigious Carolina Star safety award at an awards ceremony hosted by the North Carolina Department of Labor, Raleigh, N.C. As the latest recipient of the award, NMHG joins a select group of 135 North Carolina sites. “NMHG would like to express our gratitude to the North Carolina Department of Labor and Pitt County Chamber of Commerce,” said John Gardiner, general manager Americas Manufacturing for NMHG. "We are incredibly honored and humbled to be named a Carolina Star safety award recipient and join the ranks of Kimberly-Clarke, Pfizer, Frito-Lay, and Georgia Pacific, to name a few. It has been a wonderful year of safety milestones for our company, and we couldn’t have done it without our dedicated employees.”
In addition to receiving the safety award at the ceremony, NMHG was honored with the North Carolina Department of Labor’s Million-Hour safety award and Gold safety award for the seventh consecutive year.
Million-hour safety awards are given to firms that accumulate one million employee hours with no case of injury or illness involving days away from work. Last year, NMHG reached three million hours without a lost time accident in its Greenville, N.C., facility. Gold safety awards include cases of days away from work, restricted activity, or job transfer.
NMHG designs, engineers, manufactures, sells, and services a comprehensive line of lift trucks and aftermarket parts marketed globally under the Hyster and Yale brand names. NMHG employs approximately 4,500 people worldwide and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of NACCO Industries, Inc.
