Minnestoa, US: The Minnesota Safety Council has awarded a Governor’s Safety Award to Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company for superior performance in workplace safety and health.

The Award of Honor recognises “exceptional accomplishment in reduction of injuries and illnesses in the workplace” and the implementation of more than 90% of specified benchmarks. Applicants for the awards are judged on several years of safety data compared with state and national statistics and on their progress in implementing a comprehensive safety program.
