Alcoa's Badin Works Honored for 30 Years of Outstanding Safety Performance

BADIN, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 19, 2004--Alcoa's Badin Works in Badin, N.C., was recently honored by the NC Department of Labor for its outstanding workplace safety performance for the past 30 years.

The plant received the Outstanding Work in Accident Prevention Award from Dept. of Labor Commissioner Cherie K. Berry for maintaining a Total Disabling Incidence Rate for 30 consecutive years that is at least 50% below the state average incidence rate for companies in the same Standard Industrial Classification. Of the more than 200,000 businesses in North Carolina, Alcoa is one of only 15 companies to have achieved such a record of safety performance.

"The achievement Alcoa has made in its safety performance is quite simply, remarkable," said Commissioner Berry. "With more than four million workers and 200,000 businesses in North Carolina, the most effective injury deterrent we have is those employers like Alcoa, and their employees who recognize that safety begins with them."

According to Plant Manager Tommy Gibson, the credit for the success goes to the employees. "Alcoa has an extremely strong focus on health and safety, but our employees made this award possible," said Gibson. "They are truly dedicated to working safely, and watching out for each other on the job."

Alcoa Badin Works is an anode manufacturing and ingot casting facility. The plant has been a part of the Badin community since 1919 and employs 140 people.
