June 12, 2014 – At a ceremony on Thursday, June 12, the North Carolina Department of Labor honored area employers and employees at the agency’s annual safety awards banquet in Concord.
 
“It’s really an honor for me to travel throughout the state and recognize these employers who are making a commitment to their employees’ safety and health,” Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry said. “These employers are helping to make North Carolina workplaces some of the safest in the country.”
 
The awards honor outstanding on-the-job safety achievements of each company during 2013. Recipients are from Cabarrus, Charlotte, Concord, Granite Quarry, Harrisburg, Kannapolis, Landis, Mount Pleasant, Salisbury and Winston-Salem.
 
The event was co-sponsored by the N.C. Department of Labor and the Water and Sewer Authority of Cabarrus County.
The local recipients have met the stringent requirements necessary to receive a safety award.
Under program rules, companies must have been free of fatal accidents at the site for which the award is given to be eligible. The gold award criteria are based on a DART rate that is at least 50 percent below the statewide rate for its industry. The rate includes cases of days away from work, restricted activity or job transfer. The silver award is based only on cases with days away from work. They are recorded when the worker misses at least one full day of work, not including the day of the injury. The applicant must attain an incidence rate for cases with days away from work that is at least 50 percent below the rate for its industry.
