Company claims most awards from Georgia Association of Manufacturers, all-time highest honors from Liberty Mutual

When safety is a priority, it shows.

Mohawk’s commitment to world-class safety has been validated this spring by two of its external partners – Georgia Association of Manufacturers and Liberty Mutual.

A statewide trade association that represents all of Georgia’s manufacturing businesses, Georgia Association of Manufacturers presented Mohawk more awards than any other company during its annual safety conference held earlier this spring in Atlanta. The association was started in 1900 and currently works on behalf of all Georgia manufacturers to enhance their competitiveness in a global marketplace.

Liberty Mutual, one of Mohawk’s largest insurance provider, recently recognized 59 of the company’s manufacturing and logistics facilities across the United States for excellence in safety. The silver and gold awards are based on the sites’ DART (days away, restricted or transferred) ratings. The Safety Commendation Award is presented to facilities with a DART rating at least 50 percent better than Bureau of Labor standards.

“We appreciate the recognition from GAM and Liberty Mutual, two organizations that truly understand the impact world-class safety standards have on our business and everyone who works at Mohawk, ” Corporate Safety Director Terry Craft said. “It’s important to us that our people leave work each day and return home to their families the same way they came in. We are exceptionally proud of the teams at each of these facilities and their ongoing commitment to safety in all aspects of the manufacturing process.”
