April 22, 2013

AGC Automotive Americas' Elizabethtown plant has received the Governor's Safety and Health Award for achieving 1.5 million work hours without incurring a lost-time incident. The Governor's Safety and Health Award is given to employers and their associates who achieve the required number of hours worked without a lost-time injury or illness, according to officials.

The award was presented at AGC's Elizabethtown plant by Mark S. Brown, Acting Secretary of the Kentucky Labor Cabinet.

"The success of the Elizabethtown facility depends upon the hard work and dedication of each and every associate within our facility," says Scott Guenther, plant manager for the Elizabethtown location.

"AGC takes the initiative to ensure that there is no production without the assurance of safety with the ultimate goal of eradicating all serious injuries or illnesses to its associates," he adds.

This is the second award for this location. In 2000, the AGC Elizabethtown plant received its first Governor's Safety and Health Award for achieving more than one million hours worked without a lost time injury. To date, the Elizabethtown plant has achieved 1.9 million work hours or 618 days without a lost time injury, according to officials.
