HanesBrands, a global marketer of everyday basic innerwear and activewear apparel under world-class brands, has announced that its Cleveland distribution centre has attained safety milestone by achieving 2 million employee hours without ainjury in 2016. This is one of the 34 facilities in the state of North Carolina to have bagged this achievement.

North Carolina Department of Labor (NCDOL) commissioner Cherie Berry had visited the distribution centre to present the certificate to Joel Long, director of distribution for HanesBrands, on behalf of the facility’s more than 500 employees. The NCDOL million-hour safety awards are given to facilities that accumulate 1 million or more employee hours with no cases of injury or illness that involve days away from work.

“It is important that we recognise companies when they exceed expectations of safety and health in their workplace, and the HanesBrands facility in Kings Mountain has demonstrated that commitment with this recent 2 million-man hour award,” said Berry.

Commending the achievement of the distribution centre team, Long said, "Safety is a top priority at HanesBrands, and a responsibility that each of us at the Cleveland Distribution Center owns – both for ourselves and those we work with. Achieving 2 million safe hours is a reflection of the strong teamwork and focus of everyone who works here."

The Cleveland Distribution Center, which ships intimate apparel orders for Bali, Playtex and Maidenform, from department-store and mid-tier retailers, has a long track record of safe operations. The facility has earned six consecutive NCDOL Gold Safety Awards (2011-2016) and achieved 1 million safe hours in 2016. (RR)
