NVM 300PADUCAH, Ky. (7/18/13) – The Kentucky Labor Cabinet this week presented the employees of VMV Paducahbilt with a Governor’s Safety and Health Award.
 
VMV Paducahbilt employees, managers and members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local No. 123 have worked more than 500,760 hours without a lost-time incident.
 
Labor Cabinet Secretary Larry Roberts noted that this governor’s safety award is the first for the company. “I’m excited to have another Kentucky operation apply for and receive this award that represents a great accomplishment. Through effective employee training and incentives, an active safety committee and strict enforcement of safety regulations, every Paducahbilt employee has played a significant role in earning this achievement.”
 
The Governor’s Safety and Health Award provides special recognition for outstanding safety and health performance and encourages the development of programs designed to reduce and even eliminate occupational injuries and illnesses. The award is given to employers and their employees who together have achieved the required number of hours worked without experiencing a lost-time injury or illness.
 
Bob Pedersen, vice president and general manager of VMV Paducahbilt, said, “National Railway and VMV could not be happier receiving this award; it is a true testament to our company’s commitment to safety and our employees’ commitment to work safe every day.”
 
VMV Paducahbilt, a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Railway Equipment Co., is a provider of new and remanufactured locomotives, locomotive products and wheel services. The plant currently has 205 full-time employees in Paducah, Ky.
