“Perdue Foods has demonstrated a strong commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace,” said Fisher. “The evaluation criteria for this award are challenging, and this company has worked extremely hard to meet and exceed the standards the award requires.”

The Governor’s Award of Excellence recognizes Tennessee employers and employees who meet a required number of hours without workplace injuries serious enough to cause an employee to miss a day of work or restrict normal job activities. The number of hours required is based on the size of the company.

Perdue Foods processes poultry products. The company has qualified for the Governor’s Award by working more than 1,006,780 hours without a lost time or restricted duty workplace injury or illness.
