Brunswick Corporation’s facility in New York Mills, MN has been awarded the Governor’s Safety Award from the Minnesota Safety Council. The award, which honors Minnesota employers, is in recognition for its excellence in workplace safety and health. The facility was also recently named in the Star Tribune’s Top 150 Workplace list, where it was listed in the top ten. “Our team has been the recipient of the Brunswick Chairman’s Safety Award, received the Meritorious Achievement Award for exemplary workplace safety efforts in 2018, and the New York Mills facility participates in the voluntary consultation program with Minnesota OSHA,” said Brian Hines, Brunswick Aluminum Fish Group vice president of operations. “Those are just a few of the many examples that show our commitment to safety in the workplace. The Governor’s Safety Awards program was started in 1934 and has been awarded to Minnesota employers who exhibit exemplary standards in workplace safety. Applicants are judged on a number of criteria that examines several years of injury data as compared to national statistics and on their progress towards the implementation of a comprehensive safety program. The Governor’s Safety Awards recognition is coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council and was a part of the 85th annual Minnesota Safety and Health Conference.
