HanesBrands, global marketer of basic apparel under world-class brands, has announced that its Canterbury Distribution Centre in North Carolina is one of 21 facilities in the state to achieve two million employee hours without injury during the first half of 2017. This marks the third time in 2017 that Hanes has been recognised for its safety achievements.

The North Carolina Department of Labour honoured the Cleveland Distribution Centre, also in Kings Mountain, for reaching two million employee hours without an injury in February and the Almondridge Distribution Centre, located in Rural Hall, for achieving one million safe hours in June. The NCDOL million-hour safety awards are given to facilities that accumulate one million or more employee hours with no cases of injury or illness that involve days away from work.

NCDOL Commissioner Cherie Berry was onsite at Canterbury to present the certificate to Joel Long, director of distribution for HanesBrands, and the facility’s more than 300 employees.

“It is always a big achievement when companies in North Carolina exceed expectations of safety and health in their workplace,” commissioner Cherie Berry said. “HanesBrands’ Canterbury Distribution Centre in Kings Mountain has demonstrated that commitment with this recent two million safe hour award, and I applaud them.”

Long commended the Canterbury Distribution Centre team for the achievement: “It is an honour for our Kings Mountain team to be recognised twice in one year by the North Carolina Department of Labour.

“We value employee safety at HanesBrands, and it is a responsibility that each of us owns – both for ourselves and those we work with,” he said. “Achieving two million safe hours at both the Canterbury and Cleveland facilities is a reflection of the strong collaboration and focus of our dedicated employees.”

The Canterbury Distribution Centre, which ships Hanes, Playtex and Just My Size products to mass and regional retailers, has received five consecutive NCDOL Gold Safety Awards (2012-2016), one Silver Award (2011) and achieved one million safe hours in February 2016. (SV)
