One of the highest safety achievements went to the Newport,
Tennessee SI Group plant during a presentation ceremony on Tuesday in the
Newport/Cocke County Industrial Park.
“SI Group is proud to announce that its manufacturing plant
in Newport has been awarded the Volunteer STAR Award by the Tennessee
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA),” said Jeff Prickett,
director of Tennessee operations.
“To say that we are pleased with this designation is an
understatement. This award is the culmination of the tremendous effort of
everyone at our Tennessee facility and the company’s relentless pursuit of
on-the-job safety and health standards,” he said.
To put the outstanding achievement into perspective, TOSHA
Administrator Steven Hawkins said the Newport plant is only one of 38 Volunteer
Star Safety Award (VSSA) recipients out of 162,000 Tennessee employers.
