NASHVILLE – Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that LoJac Inc. Materials Division in Lebanon was chosen to receive the Governor’s Award of Excellence for Workplace Safety. The award was given today at the 33rd Annual Tennessee Safety and Health Congress held at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center in Murfreesboro.
"LoJac Materials Division has demonstrated strong commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace," said Neeley, who presented the Governor’s Award of Excellence to the company today. “The evaluation criteria for this award are challenging, and this company has worked extremely hard to meet and exceed the standards the award requires.”
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.
LoJac Inc. Materials Division has 48 employees and is a manufacturer of concrete block and brick. The facility has qualified for the Governor’s Award by working more than 100,000 hours without a lost-time or restricted duty workplace injury or illness. The site’s injury-free record dates back to November 2008. This is the second time this facility has received this award.
“Every employee will share this award,” said Danny Zoccola, Safety Director for LoJac, Inc. Materials. “It is through their efforts and their attitude towards safety that make this award possible.”
