CLARK Material Handling Company Celebrates TWO  Safety Milestones

Lexington, KY – August 29, 2013

CLARK Material Handling Company has reason to celebrate.  CLARK, a leader in the material handling industry, was presented with the Kentucky Governor’s Safety & Health Award for both of its Kentucky facilities over the past week.  It was a sixth  time  award celebration for  CLARK’s Aftermarket Parts Distribution Center in Louisville, KY and a first time award for CLARK’s manufacturing and distribution center located in Lexington, KY.

CLARK’s  facilities  were  recognized for working over a million  hours combined at both locations, without a lost time accident. The Louisville, KY facility has worked over ten years without a lost time accident.

The Kentucky Labor Cabinet’s Governor’s Health & Safety Award Program is designed to promote safety and health awareness in workplaces throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky, encourage good sound work practices and recognize those companies that have achieved significant reductions in injuries and illnesses in their workplaces.

“Everyone at CLARK has safety as their top priority,” said Dennis Lawrence, CLARK’s President & CEO. “Receiving the Governor’s Health & Safety award six times for our Louisville facility and for the first time for our Lexington facility  is quite an accomplishment.   It  demonstrates that CLARK truly cares for the health and safety of its employees and that our employees are serious about  ensuring our safety culture for the future.  We are extremely proud of the employees in these facilities who create a culture of safety every day.”
