COMPANY EARNS FIRST SHARP AWARD
NASHVILLE – Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner Karla Davis announced that ITW Paslode in Covington was chosen to receive the SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) award.
"ITW Paslode shows a continued dedication to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace," said Alisa Malone, Deputy Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Labor, who presented the SHARP award to the company today at the company’s facility located at 1211 Hope Street in Covington. “We are pleased to honor this fine company for their notable safety record.”
The SHARP award, designed for employers with fewer than 250 workers in high-hazard industrial classifications, is one of the state’s highest honors for workplace safety and health. The main incentive for participation in the SHARP award program is the desire by employers to promote a safe and healthy workplace. The program also allows employers to be removed from programmed compliance inspection lists for a period of 12 months.
ITW Paslode currently employs 52 people and is located in Covington, Tennessee. The company was established in 1976. ITW Paslode is a manufacturer of fasteners (i.e. nails) for the construction industry.
