Brunswick’s New York Mills Operation Wins Governor’s Safety Award

Brunswick Corporation’s New York Mills Operation has earned a Governor’s Safety Award from the Minnesota Safety Council in recognition for its excellence in workplace safety and health. This comes just after the facility was named in the top 10 in the Star Tribune’s Top 150 Workplace list.

“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.”

Since 1934, the annual Governor’s Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers with exceptional safety performance. Applicants are judged on several years of injury data in relation to national statistics and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program.

The Governor’s Safety Awards recognition is part of the 85th annual Minnesota Safety & Health Conference, coordinated by the Minnesota Safety Council. The Minnesota Safety Council, founded in 1928, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in Minnesota by preventing unintentional injuries.
