Safety Achievement for 2014

Six R.J. Reynolds locations were awarded the N.C. Department of Labor's Gold Level Certificate of Safety Achievement, the state’s highest safety award. All six of the facilities have received the award for several consecutive years.

The latest awards, presented in mid-2015 by N.C. Commissioner of Labor Cherie Berry, recognize companies that excel in safety. To qualify for the gold award, each company must have 10 or more full-time employees and must have achieved Days Away, Restricted and Transfer (DART) case rates that are at least 50 percent below national averages.

The RAI Main office also received a One Million Employee Hours Award, which recognizes locations that achieve one million man-hours with no lost-time workplace accidents.

"We are very pleased to receive these awards from the N.C. Department of Labor in recognition of our commitment to safety. The safety of our employees is our number one priority at R.J. Reynolds. Commitment, leadership and active involvement throughout all levels of our organization are essential for us to drive continuous success in safety performance."
Johnny Cagigas, vice president of R.J. Reynolds manufacturing
