BAE Systems Receives Kentucky Award

"Congratulations to BAE Systems in Louisville on earning its third Governor's Safety and Health Award," Labor Secretary Derrick Ramsey said. "Working more than two million hours without a lost-time injury is a great accomplishment, and I appreciate its dedication to keeping its employees safe and healthy."

Kentucky Labor Cabinet Deputy Secretary Mike Nemes visited BAE Systems in Louisville on Dec. 12 to present a Governor's Safety and Health Award for the 2,058,198 production hours employees there worked without a lost-time incident. "Congratulations to BAE Systems in Louisville on earning its third Governor's Safety and Health Award," Labor Secretary Derrick Ramsey said. "Working more than two million hours without a lost-time injury is a great accomplishment, and I appreciate its dedication to keeping its employees safe and healthy. On behalf of Governor Bevin and all of us at the Labor Cabinet, thank you for all of your hard work and your dedication to workplace safety."

Founded in 1999, BAE Systems' Naval Center of Excellence in Louisville is dedicated to the overhaul, manufacture, and repair of major caliber guns and other naval systems for the U.S. and its allies. The plant has about 640,000 square feet of manufacturing, assembly, and test space and is the only commercial producer of medium to major caliber gun barrels in North America, according to the Labor Cabinet's announcement.

"Our talented and dedicated workers are our biggest asset, and it's our responsibility to ensure they go home to their family and loved ones safe and healthy every day," said Director of Operations Mike Viscosi. "BAE Systems is committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment."

The state agency presents the Governor's Safety and Health Award to highlight outstanding safety and health performance in Kentucky workplaces. A business may qualify for the award if its employees achieve a required number of hours worked without experiencing a lost-time injury or illness; the required number of hours depends on the number of employees.
