ASHEVILLE, NC – Nominated by Paragon Safety Group, Pine Gate Renewables is pleased to announce its first-time win of the Gold Safety Award from the North Carolina Department of Labor (NCDOL). The Gold Award is based on the days away, restricted, transferred (DART) rate, which includes cases of days away from work, restricted activity or job transfer.
NCDOL’s Safety Awards program stimulates interest in accident prevention and promotes safety in the workplace through incentivizing employers and employees to maintain a healthful work environment. To qualify for an award, an organization must have no site or location fatalities and have an incidence rate of at least 50% below its industry’s average.
Pine Gate Renewables places the utmost value on the safety and health of its employees, subcontractors, clients, and the communities it serves. On June 27, 2019, Pine Gate accepted its award at the NCDOL Safety Awards Banquet.
“It was a privilege to represent solar among so many amazing North Carolina companies committed to promoting safety and wellness for employees and their families,” said Bru Weber, Director of Pre-Construction at Pine Gate Renewables. “From breweries to hospitals, it was great to celebrate each other’s success and be inspired to continue the hard work we’re all doing that makes North Carolina a great place to live and work.”
