NC DOL Awards Iredell County Employers with 2021 Safety Awards

Provided by Iredell EDC on June 17, 2022 —

The NC Department of Labor (NC DOL) recognized numerous Iredell County businesses at its annual safety awards banquet held in downtown Statesville, hosted by the Greater Statesville Chamber of Commerce. Our community has dedicated companies that strive to meet the stringent requirements to receive a safety award. The safety awards have varying eligibility and criteria, which are outlined in further detail at the NC DOL’s website. The program stipulates that recognized companies must be free of fatal accidents at the site for the calendar year, and have maintained an incidence rate at least 50 percent below the average for its particular industry group. The award is to honor companies for meeting stringent requirements and making safe environments a priority in their facilities.

“North Carolina’s employers and employees show us the true importance of a strong commitment to safety and health each and every day,” 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.”

Congratulations to the Iredell County companies that received a Safety Award for 2021. To see the Award Recipients list, click here.
