Labor Department presents safety awards to companies across Charlotte region | Business

CHARLOTTE – The N.C. Department of Labor recognized area employers and employees at the agency’s annual safety awards banquet held April 13, in Charlotte at the Embassy Suites.

“North Carolina’s injury and illness rate remains at an historic low,” Labor Commissioner Josh Dobson said. “These businesses’ dedication to safety is the reason why North Carolina is one of the safest states in which to work and they deserve this distinguished recognition.”

The awards honor outstanding on-the-job safety achievements of each recipient during 2021. Recipients recognized are located in Charlotte and surrounding counties.  

Companies must have been free of fatal accidents at the site for which the award is given to be eligible. 

The gold award criteria are based on a DART rate that is at least 50% below the statewide rate for its industry. The rate includes cases of days away from work, restricted activity or job transfer. The silver award is based only on cases with days away from work. They are recorded when the worker misses at least one full day of work, not including the day of the injury. The applicant must attain an incidence rate for cases with days away from work that is at least 50% below the rate for its industry.
