A Curtiss-Wright facility located in Chanhassen, MN, received a Governor’s Safety Award for superior performance in workplace safety and health as part of the Minnesota Governor’s Safety Awards. The Chanhassen site produces Exlar electric actuators and earned this award by reporting better than industry average recordable rates and scored between 50 and 74 on a 100-point safety program evaluation scale.
Applicants are judged on several years of injury data as it compares with their industry’s national statistics, and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program. Coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council, Curtiss-Wright will be honored at the Minnesota Safety and Health Conference on Thursday, May 18 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Curtiss-Wright is one of 266 employers to be honored through the awards program.
