Program Recognizes Companies with Outstanding Safety Records
HICKORY, N.C. (September 2022) – Shurtape Technologies, LLC, an industry-leading manufacturer and marketer of adhesive tape and consumer home and office products, is excited to be the recipient of seven North Carolina Department of Labor (NCDOL) Safety Awards for 2021 safety performance. The NCDOL presented the awards to Shurtape during its Safety Awards banquet on September 7th in Hudson, N.C., where the company received six Gold Awards and one Silver Award.
Administered through the NCDOL’s Education, Training and Technical Assistance Bureau of the Occupational Safety and Health Division, the Annual Safety Awards program recognizes private and public firms that achieve and maintain good safety records. To qualify for the safety award, companies have to maintain an incident rate of at least 50 percent below their industry’s average. According to the department, the program is designed to stimulate interest in accident prevention and to promote safety in the workplace by providing an incentive to employers and employees to maintain a safe and healthful workplace.
“We are thrilled to receive this safety recognition from the North Carolina Department of Labor once again,” said Richard S. Kilpatrick, Ph.D., CSP, Corporate Health & Safety Manager of Shurtape Technologies, LLC. “Our culture is centered around the health and safety of our team members. It takes commitment and hard work from everyone across our operations to set an industry standard for safety. We thank Secretary Dobson and the Department for acknowledging the important safety activities we undertake each year.”
