Lebanon, Tenn. Company Receives State’s Highest Workplace Safety Award

March 31, 2004

For close to two years, LoJac Materials Inc. in Lebanon, Tennessee, has worked without either a lost time or restricted duty injury. In doing so, the company has been awarded the Governor’s Award of Excellence for workplace safety and health.

The award is given to Tennessee employers who meet the required number of hours during a calendar year without workplace injuries serious enough to cause an employee to miss a day of work or restrict his or her normal job activities. The number of hours required for the award is based on the size of the company.

Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administrator John Winkler presented the award last week to LoJac employees at a ceremony at the Lebanon facility. LoJac employs 46 people and manufactures concrete block.

“The evaluation criteria for the Governor’s Award of Excellence for Workplace Safety and Health are demanding,” said Winkler. “Achieving the required level of safety shows LoJac management and employees are committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace.”
