ADI, Cerro Wire Win State Safety Award

Two Crothersville manufacturers have been honored for Workplace Safety. Aisin Drivetrain and Cerro Wire each were named among the eight statewide award recipients.

“Dedication to a safe work environment should be an absolute goal of every Indiana employer,” said Lt. Gov. Ellspermann. “I commend our award winners for successfully implementing significant health and safety practices.”

The companies were honored at the 2013 Indiana Safety and Health Conference and Expo luncheon ceremony in Indianapolis last Wednesday.

Indiana organizations were recognized in the following categories: external education and outreach, innovations, internal education and outreach, and partnerships.

The 2013 Governor’s Workplace Safety Award recipients are:

•Aisin Drivetrain, Inc., in Crothersville – internal education and outreach for a medium-sized company.

•Cerro Wire, LLC in Crothersville – external education and outreach.

•Cummins Seymour Engine Plant – innovations for a large-sized company.

•DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction in Warsaw – internal education and outreach for a large-sized company.

•Gribbins Insulation Co., Inc., in Evansville – innovations in construction.

•Lebanon Community School Corporation – partnerships for construction safety.

•Lord Corporation in Indianapolis – internal education and outreach for a small-sized company.

•PAOLI Furniture – innovations for a medium-sized company.

“Safety in the workplace cannot be overrated,” said Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar. “When a company ensures that safety is a top priority and implements an occupational safety plan, employees, customers and the community win.

“A major benefit of a safe workplace is an efficient, profitable organization with employees who feel they are valued,” added Brinegar.

The 2013 Governor’s Workplace Safety Awards are a result of a partnership among government, business and safety leaders.
