NFS to Recognize 5 Million Safe Work Hours

25 September 2017

(ERWIN, Tennessee -- August 29, 2017) – Nuclear Fuel Services, Inc. (NFS) will recognize the achievement of 5 million safe work hours in a special event on Tuesday, Sept. 5, at 1205 Banner Hill Road in Erwin, Tenn., with a catered meal and a Safety Fair for all NFS employees. At 1 p.m., State Sen. Rusty Crowe will present a proclamation from the state, and representatives from the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration will speak during a short ceremony.

“Our employees are responsible for this accomplishment,” said Joel W. Duling, NFS President. “We build safety into our processes, but it still requires employees to consciously think about their safety and the safety of the person standing next to them. Five million hours would not have been possible without a workforce dedicated to safety.”
NFS achieved 5 million hours without a lost time injury in early June 2017, and had not experienced a lost time injury since November 2013.

“Our 5-million-hour milestone is a great accomplishment and is worthy of recognition,” Duling added. “NFS is a community committed to safety. We will continue to work to eliminate all accidents and injuries.”
