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
"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.

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
