The US National Safety Council recently presented Florida Tile with its Perfect Record Award recognizing at least 12 consecutive months without incurring a company-wide occupational injury or illness that resulted in days away from work or death.

According to Darin Dillow, Florida Tile’s Safety and Environmental Manager, to meet “The criteria of the award requires that a company, unit and/or facility or an individual must have continued without the occurrence of an occupational injury or job-related illness involving days away from work or death for a period of at least 12 consecutive months, and be accordance with the OSHA record keeping requirements.”

“Eligibility is determined based on self-reported data submitted by the participant, which must be submitted within 60 days from the date the total hours were reached. Any organization recording a fatality will be disqualified,” Dillow added.

Dillow also noted that the company also was cited separately by the National Safety Council with its Occupational Excellence Achievement Award for an overall job-related incident rate of half the Department of Labor’s established minimum standards.

Florida Tile is headquartered in Lexington, KY, employs 375 workers and operates its porcelain and ceramic tile manufacturing facility in nearby Lawrenceburg.
