L&P’s branch in Georgetown, Kentucky, recently received the Governor’s Safety and Health Award!
The team worked 801,564 hours—at least 24 months—without a serious work-related injury or illness that resulted in an employee being away from work for an extended period of time. During the award ceremony, a representative from the Kentucky Department of Labor congratulated Georgetown on their commitment to employee safety.
Ethan Kiser, Environmental, Health, and Safety Manager at Georgetown, said, “Our team puts safety and health at the forefront of our operations through internal safety audits, extensive employee engagement in our safety program, thorough and effective incident investigation, and by ensuring our employees are effectively trained for their positions and able to identify and protect themselves and their team against any safety hazards in their areas.
Keeping our employees safe is our most important job. This job is a moral responsibility, and it is critical to make safety a top priority to ensure all employees return home each night in as good or better shape than they arrived. Our employees are the backbone of Leggett & Platt, and when they feel safe at Georgetown, our business thrives.”
We are so proud of this team for putting people first by prioritizing safety and care for each other!
