Brunswick Corporation’s New York Mills, Minn., operation earned a Governor’s Safety Award from the Minnesota Safety Council. The honor came a week after the facility was named among the Top 10 in the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s Top 150 Workplace list.

“Our team has a tremendous focus on making safety the first priority at all of our Brunswick manufacturing facilities,” Brian Hines, vice president of operations for the Brunswick aluminum fish group, said in a statement. “Our team has been the recipient of the Brunswick Chairman’s Safety Award, received the Meritorious Achievement Award for exemplary workplace safety efforts in 2018 and the New York Mills facility participates in the voluntary consultation program with the Minnesota OSHA. Those are just a few of the many examples that show our commitment to safety in the workplace.”

Paul Aasen, Minnesota Safety Council president, said that about 100 workers get injured or fall each day in the state. “Congratulations to Lund and Crestliner for their hard work to make sure their employees are not part of this statistic,” he said in a statement.

Since 1934, the Governor’s Safety Awards program has honored Minnesota employers.
