NASHVILLE – Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Bath Fitter Tennessee, Inc. in Springfield was chosen to receive the Governor’s Award of Excellence for Workplace Safety.
 
"Bath Fitter Tennessee, Inc. has demonstrated strong commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace," said Neeley. “The evaluation criteria for this award are challenging, and this company has worked extremely hard to meet and exceed the standards the award requires.”
 
Commissioner Neeley presented the Governor’s Award of Excellence to the company today at the company’s facility located at 102 Evergreen Drive in Springfield. Guest speakers at the award ceremony included State Senator Diane Black, Robertson County Mayor Howard Bradley, and Mike Zumbrunnen, Bath Fitter Plant Manager.
 
The Governor’s Safety Award honors Tennessee employers and employees who meet a required number of hours without workplace injuries serious enough to cause an employee to miss a day of work or restrict normal job activities. The number of hours required is based on the size of the company.
 
Bath Fitter Tennessee, Inc. has 85 employees and is a manufacturer of bathtubs and shower liners. The facility has qualified for the Governor’s Award by working more than 350,000 hours without a lost time or restricted duty workplace injury or illness. The site’s injury-free record dates back to December 2007.
 
“Bath Fitter has achieved this goal because we rely on employee involvement and maintain the ‘FISH! Philosophy,’” said Sam Schuckman, Safety and Security Coordinator for Bath Fitter Tennessee, Inc. “This has helped our company build a stronger organization and improve our communication as a team.”
