NMHG Receives Carolina Star Award for Safety

NACCO Materials Handling Group (NMHG), the makers of Hyster and Yale lift trucks, received the Carolina Star Safety Award during a ceremony on Tuesday hosted by the North Carolina Department of Labor.
To qualify, a company needs to pass an initial assessment to prove that their facilities are a safe, healthy and productive work environment. The following six elements constitute the Carolina Star’s SEE & ACT requirements:
• Statistics;
• Everyone’s commitment;
• Employee Involvement;
• Analyze hazards;
• Control risks;
• Training.
NMHG is the latest recipient among 135 North Carolina Star sites. In addition to receiving this award, NMHG was honored with the North Carolina Department of Labor Million-Hour Safety Award and Gold Safety Award for the seventh consecutive year.

Million-Hour Safety Awards are given to firms that accumulate one million employee hours with no case of injury or illness involving days away from work. Last year, NMHG reached three-million hours without a lost time accident in its Greenville, N.C., facility.
