Keystone Wood Specialties is one of only 10 Pennsylvania employers honored with this year's 2009 Governor's Award for Safety Excellence, presented in October during the 83rd Governor's Occupational Safety and Health Conference.
The award is the culmination of several year's work by the company's safety and compliance coordinator Dave Landis.
"We believe that workplace safety makes a major difference in a successful company," says Landis. "It is more than worth the required time and resources. It pays incalculable dividends."
Applicants for the Governor's Award for Safety Excellence must meet rigorous standards of achievement. The award recognizes successful employer-employee safety programs that produce tangible safety improvements.
"Winners of the Governor's Award for Safety Excellence are dedicated to high standards in workplace safety and employee wellness," says Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell. "These companies have implemented safety strategies that reduce on-the-job injuries, increase productivity and sharpen their competitive edge in a global economy. They serve as inspirations for all Pennsylvania workplaces to match their success."
Keystone Wood Specialties was founded in 1972 as the S.D. Stoltzfus Cabinet Shop. It manufacturers custom cabinet doors, dovetailed drawer boxes, moldings and other custom components.
