Kentucky Labor Cabinet Secretary Mark Brown recently presented Owen Electric with a Governor’s Safety and Health Award.
The 135 employees of Owen Electric have worked more than 521,240 hours without a lost-time incident.
“This award signifies the emphasis that Owen Electric’s managers and employees place on worker safety,” said Brown. “Owen Electric’s high commitment to safety is evident in this award, and this achievement is a positive reflection on the management staff, the employees and the entire Owenton community.”
The Governor’s Safety and Health Award provides special recognition for outstanding safety and health performance and encourages the development of programs designed to reduce and even eliminate occupational injuries and illnesses.
The award is given to employers and their employees who together have achieved the required number of hours worked without experiencing a lost-time injury or illness.
Tony Dempsey, safety manager at Owen Electric, credits the employees for creating a safe environment in the workplace.
“Over the past 12 years, we have worked hard to build a culture of safety at Owen Electric, and it is because of all of our employees’ focus on safety that we are receiving this award. More importantly is that our employees are going home healthy at the end of each day,” Dempsey said.
