Award from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry recognizes Voith’s commitment to workplace safety

Voith Turbo’s York facility has received the 2013 Governor’s Award for Safety Excellence through the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry. The award was presented to Voith Turbo’s Chief Administrative Officer and Regional Director of Voith Turbo Americas Norm Boisvert today at the York facility. The ceremony featured representatives from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry and Matthias Lindemann, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Voith Turbo GmbH. The award recognizes successful employer-employee safety programs that produce tangible safety improvements. Out of more than 9,200 eligible companies in Pennsylvania, 56 submitted applications and only 10 received awards this year.

“Winning the Governor’s Award for Safety Excellence is a great honor for Voith Turbo and its employees,” said Norm Boisvert. “The award is without a doubt a product of the company-wide commitment Voith makes for safety at its facilities. We thank the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry for recognizing our safety achievements.”

Voith Turbo said it stood out in the application process for several reasons:
•    The safety team is certified by the State of Pennsylvania.
•    Voith has a persistent drive for and attention to our safety programs and tools.
•    The Employee buy-in on safety programs.
•    The company’s effective response to safety challenges.

Aiding Voith Turbo’s application was its continued growth over the last several years, which has doubled its size in York and includes the construction of a 6,000 ft. addition to its facility. During the site visit for the award, inspectors from the Department of Labor and Industry noted the pride of Voith employees and the safety that Voith products bring to the industries and communities in which Voith operates.
